While there are some common side effects associated with metoprolol, it is important to remember that your doctor prescribed this medication because they believe that its ability to keep your blood pressure under control outweighs any adverse side effects it may cause.
However, you may still experience some common metoprolol side effects. These may include:
- Low energy or drowsiness
- Cold hands and feet, due to reduced blood flow
- Shortness of breath or wheezing
- Itchiness or rash
Contact your doctor if these side effects are severe or do not go away.
More severe side effects of metoprolol may include:
- Slowed heart rate (bradycardia)
- Low blood pressure
Call your doctor if any of these side effects persist or worsen, or if you experience any other side effects.
Tell your doctor if you are pregnant, breast feeding, have other medical conditions, or are taking any other medications.
