lebetalol anyone take it while pregnant? is it normal to feel real jittery?

I'm 37 weeks pregnant and just started lebetaol today and I feel real jittery now. I'm just wondering if this is normal. The pamplet says it's normal to feel lightheaded dizzy and nauseated. But I can't find anywhere even on the internet anything about this jittery feeling?

  • It never makes me jittery but dizzy and tired a lot..yes....maybe you are nervous making you feel jittery? or maybe need a higher dose/or dose adjustment. I hope you feel better. It is a pretty mild drug.

  • Yes, I started taking it at 37 weeks as well and for the first 2-4 days I felt VERY jittery. It will go away though!
