is it best time to take this medicine morning or night ## Has your doctor made any specific recommendation? Metoprolol is a beta blocker, used to treat high blood pressure and cardiac conditions and, in most cases, this type of medication is taken in the morning, because most people are far more active during the day, so that is the time their blood pressure can be elevated. However, it can cause some drowsiness and dizziness, in some people, as a side effect, and in those instances, it may be necessary for someone to take it at night. ## I am taking Lisinopril @20mg and also i am taking Metoprolol tart 25mg tab myl, my question is why do i take two High bloodpressure pills? Can i stop taking the Metoprolol Tablet? i think it is the culperet that makes me dizzy aswell, I have no regulad...

How are you? I'm sorry about the problems you've had. The joint and muscle pain can be normal side effects of this medication and has caused many people to have to stop taking it.

I was prescribed metoprolol succinate ER 25 because I get irregular heartbeat sometimes in which they said may be PVCs. It normally Happens if I have caffeine or anxiety. He said I can cut in half to start off because I am worried it will lower my blood pressure, normally it runs a little low about 100-110/ 60s ... Any advice ? I want to try it but nervous my bp will fall. ## If your doctor said you can start with half, then that may be a good idea. The FDA lists the typical side effects of this medication as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, increased urination and hair loss.

oblong tablet, G282 imprint on back, scored on front to break in half ## 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 co...

I've taken metoprolol Succ Tb 100Mg ER for a few year from Mylan. Now I'm taking the same from PAR. I've started getting a lot of palpitation. Could this by the reason? ## Hello, Evelyn! How are you? It is difficult to say, there can be fluctuations in the amount of the active ingredient from one generic to another and adjusting to a slightly different dosage could result in your experiencing palpitations. Other side effects, as listed by the FDA, may include nausea, dizziness, increased urination and headache. However, it would be best to have yourself checked out by your doctor to be sure of what's going on. Is there anything else I can help with?

Metoprolol tartrate side effects
3 Replies RSS
I was put on metoprolol about 3 weeks ago for hypertension and an ascending aortic aneurysm. I also have PVCs. I take 25 MG every 12 hours. My BP is better but not great. Some readings are normal and most are high (130/90-5 range) I have noticed more heart palpitations since taking it instead of less. I am having intermittent episodes of chest tightness and breathing being more labored. Also have a cough. Feels like a mild asthma attack. In the past, I would get exertional asthma with heavy exercise or laughing. My sleep is worse for waking up with a cough, palpitations, anxiety, or chest heaviness. I also have been hoarse and have a tickle in the back of my throat (postnasal drip?) Are these typical side effects? Do they warrant a reduction in my dosage? I see my cardiologist on Monday...

They both contain the same active ingredient, which is Metoprolol, so you shouldn't experience any new side effects just switching from one to the other. However, it's difficult to say how any such change may affect any given person and those can be side effects, as reported by the FDA. You may also experience hair loss and increased urination. It would be best to have this checked out, to be safe. Is there anything else I can help with?
