Doctors' Answers to "Frequently Asked Questions" - Tiazac
Answer: Your cardiologist is assuming that the depression is due to the beta blocker effect of the Toprol. This is certainly possible and I'd rather see if the depression would vanish off the beta blockers rather than committing you to antidepressants. As far as the light headedness goes, check your blood pressure lying and standing. If it falls more than 10 systolic, the dosage is a little high. Tiazac is best taken at night as it has a peak about 6-8 hours after taking it. Ensure you are not taking it in the a.m.
