Hello!

Welcome and thank you for asking on HCM!

Regarding your concern, I would explain that your symptoms could be related to metoprolol adverse effects.

This is a beta blocker and it can lower your physical performance and also cause some shortness of breath in susceptible persons.

I recommend you to check your heart rate too, because it can lead to low heart rate.

You should discuss with your prescribing doctor on the above issues.

Kind regards,

Dr. Iliri
