scottjking (2 years ago):
Im a 40 year old male, fairly active. I take Toporol Xl 50mg 2x a day. When taking toporol on a empty stomach it throws my heart into afib. Also sweating and frequent urination follow. Went to the ER with this issue and the Cardio said their was no way toporol could cause this. Ive donethis 9 times now and same thing happens every time. Even if i eat then right after i take my meds this happens. Its real severe and feels like its doing damage to my heart.
