Detailed Answer:
Hello,

Welcome to Health Care Magic.

Thanks for writing.

I am Dr.Muhammad Ahmad. I have read your question completely, i understand your concern and will try to help you in best way possible.

Both the drugs are beta blockers(Metoprolol and solotol)..and are used to control the rate of A.Fib . It is hard to tell all beta blockers have this side effect of lethargy and malaise some cause it more some cause it less. The effect and it's intensity varies person to person. One may feel more lethargy with Metoprolol other may feel more lethargy with Solotol .

As far as long term use is concerned , for arrhythmias like Afib, solotol is considered as a better choice , so I am quite positive that it will carry long term benefits for you but as far as sode effects are concerned 10% people do get dizziness lethargy woth Solotol in some ot wears off it others it doesn't and intensity varies person to person.

Things will get clear as youn start using the drug , no valid prediction can be made as ywt, it will be too early to predict anything.But yes it's a good deug with good safety profile and efficacy in Afib hopefully things will stay fine.


l hope this answered your question, a
if you have more please feel free to ask.

Regrads.

Hello, Since Monday i have been feeling sick, have a sore lower back, feel dizzy a lot of the time and have been crying a lot for no reason. I am due on my period this week i don t think i could be pregnant as i have been taking the pill . My periods usually are no cause for concern at all. I still have an appetite and have been eating well when the nausea settles down, it doesn t take long for it to come back though. Do you know what this could be? Should i go see a doctor? Thank you Becky

I have been feeling sick for a while now. It happens mostly when i am driving or in the car, but i have never been car sick ever in my life. I feel like throwing up so i try to swallow my saliva to keep it down, but it get stuck on the gag reflex thing and it makes me feel like throwing up more. i tried eating before i go, i tried not eating before i go. i stopped taking a protein shake thinking that was the problem but that wasnt it.
