Thanks for writing to us.
first goal in your case is to control blood pressure. If your blood pressure is controlled with losartan
, then i would like you to wait. As the metoprolol
is being withdrawn it is likely that your heart rate
will go up (certain pharamacological mechanism occur). Once it is completely withdrawn, heart rate will also come down after sometime. During the withdrawal Your BP should not go above the target, so check it regularly.
whenever our heart rate is more than usual, but not extremely high (like >180 bpm). we always look for a cause and try to treat it. In your case cause is evident.
What kind of discomfort you have with increased heart rate? is it only a worry about increased heart rate? please mention.
hope it is clear now.
