My wife takes Metropolol with no problems, so it may not be a problem for you. I am or was on Brilinta, that lists similar side effects, as well as lipitor. I am now on the generic of Plavix instead of Brilinta, far cheaper. Brilinta is nearly $350 a month. Generic of Plavix is $30.
Do you by chance take Metoprolol? I was on a 25 mg dose twice a day, and started having lots of problems with light headedness, felt like a was going to pass out, and had trouble breathing, felt like I couldn't draw a deep breath. Those are a couple of the side effects of it. My cardiolgist halfed my dosage, and the symptomes have pretty much cleared. The vertigo and dizziness I still have I had before my heart attack in July.
I have been having vertigo and dizziness attacks. Last time I had vertigo, it was inner ear related. This time most teste indicate it's not inner ear, but rather central nervous system. Going to the neurologist later this month.
