I could not find anything with that marking in the US prescription drug database listings, however, Metoprolol is the generic for Lopressor or Toprol, the ER stands for extended release. This is used to lower blood pressure and reduce the work load on your heart.

I got the generic equivalent to Toprol XL 50 mg tablet used for high blood pressure treatment. I wanted to double check prior to taking the medication. My METOPROLOL ER 50 MG tablets also are an oblong tablet, G282 imprint on back, scored on front to break in half. Although the G was hard to read because of the triangular shape of the letter G. I just refilled the same perscription again. The new pills are more like Toprol XL. They are round with the code m50 on one side. No score to split

I was on Toprol XR for 3 yrs w/ no problem. Then HMO switched me to generic Metoprolol Succ ER...within three weeks my blood pressure rose considerably. I now have to take additional meds (Amlodiprine) to stablize blood presssure. I dont believe generics all work the same as branded.

Dorothy - "Possible side effects include dizziness, lightheadedness, drowsiness, tiredness, diarrhea, unusual dreams, ataxia, trouble sleeping, depression, and vision problems. It may also reduce blood flow to the hands and feet, causing them to feel numb and cold; smoking may worsen this effect.

Serious side effects that are not to be tolerated for any length of time include symptoms of a very slow heartbeat (less than 50 bpm) (e.g. persistent dizziness, fainting, unusual fatigue), bluish discoloration of the fingers and toes, numbness/tingling/swelling of the hands or feet, sexual dysfunction, erectile dysfunction (impotence), hair loss, mental/mood changes, trouble breathing, cough, dyslipidemia, and increased thirst. Other highly unlikely symptoms include easy bruising or bleeding, persistent sore throat or fever, yellowing skin or eyes, stomach pain, dark urine, and persistent nausea. Symptoms of an allergic reaction include: rash, itching, swelling, severe dizziness. Taking it with alcohol might cause mild body rashes and therefore is not recommended."

I was given a script for Toprol xl.
The pharmacy gave me Metoprolol Succ. ER.
Is this the same drug?
Does it have components that Toprol does not have?

I just refilled my Metoprolol ER 50mg and the pill size chaged from my last. Is it possible that the pill size would get bigger or could this be a mistake? I have not felt very well the last 3 days which is how long I have had the new.

Have taken Metoprolol Succ ER 50 mg for years. Now my RX carrier tells me it will increase in price in 2012 and will cost me 5 times the amount in 2011. Has anyone else received such a notice? Changed from Tier 1 to Tier 3. This is absurd.

I have AARP RX and they have increased from Tier 1 to Tier 3 from $7 to $111 for mail order 90 day supply. I am writing my congressman

Edie Edwards Says:
I have been advised by AARP RX the reason for the increase in price was because Metoprolol Succ ER was going from a generic drug to a brand drug. I have never heard of this. However, in checking other pharmacies the price is about the same. Is is absurd.

I received the same letter. In searching the internet, I have found USA sites that sell 50 mg tablets from $21.00 to $30.00 per 30 day prescriptions; discounted for 60 and 90 day presrciptions. The 30 day cost WITHOUT insurance is less than the new co-pay.

Costco pharmacy (membership NOT required for pharmacy) quoted me a price of $21.95 qty. 30 Metopolol ER (succ) 50 mg. Tabs. This is without insurance. Costco's prices really are good! It may even be less to buy 90 day supply! You can even order refills online now.

I just had the same experience and nobody can tell me why. The metoprolol tartrate, which has to be take twice a day is much cheaper.
