Doctor: Dr. David, Board Certified Physician replied 1 year ago

what is your heart rate?

metoprolol can decrease your heart rate.

if your heart rate is ok and above 60, you should talk to your doctor about increasing your dose of metoprolol

some doctors prefer atanolol over metoprolol in patients who are getting dialysis.

make sure to avoid heavy salt intake as well

and avoid foods high in potassium.

I feel better already! Thank you.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
