Re: Symptoms Summary and Questions



Be careful with the Toprol. I was on Toprol for over two years, 200mg. I basically turned into a walking zombie, and I really don't even remember much of anything during that time. I also put on lots of weight, around 60-70 lbs. from the medication. I've found that while the Toprol masked some of the lesser attacks, it really didn't stop them. I've been able to control my attacks much better with diet, lots of water, adaquet sleep, exercise, low stress, avoiding stimulants/caffiene and too much alcohol, and don't stand still for too long.
