Hi Amy.Metoprolol also is prescribed for arrhythmias/supraventricular tachycardia, which is why I’m still taking it.. but I guess you don’t have any of that?
I had afib after surgery, while in the hospital. I was put on Metoprolol and amiodarone. I know that the amiodarone was for the afib, the metoprolol may have also been for this- not sure. It may have also been to control blood pressure, as it does both control blood pressure and keeps pulse low. Right after my cardio said I could go off amiodarone, they had me wear a halter monitor for 2 weeks. It showed my heart rhythm as normal, so I was fine to stay off of the amiodarone. I'm not sure if this weighed into my cardiologist's green light for me to go off of metoprolol. But, so far, no sign of the afib returning.
