My Metoprolol ER 50 is oval with a line for splitting. On the other side is 369. Is this Metoprolol? Can't find that description for Metoprolol.

Yes - the white oval pill scored on one side, 369 on the other side is Metoprolol Succinate Extended-Release Tablets 50mg manufactured by Ethex. [1]

Roy Says:

Chili, I'm guessing it stands for the manufacturers of the generic medication. Wats is most likely Watson Pharmaceuticals, and Par is most likely Par Pharmaceuticals. Let us know if you notice any differerence between the two ...

I had been taking 50mg metropolol twice a day for awhile, but got the substitute wat this time and I've been having severe stomach pains and hot flashes. Prilosec helps, but this is ridiculous.

DeeDee Says:

Par Pharmaceuticals metoprolol succ 50mg is the only one of the generics I get results from. Others make me feel just terrible and don't help my pressure. I looked for a pharmacy where I could get Par and found one, but within 6 mo. they switched on me, and filled my script with pills from another. I found this website today on my search for Par medicine. Yes, the pills by different suppliers react differently. Even if it's exactly the same active ingredient, it may contain all sorts of other inactive ingredients. I called Par and they don't sell to the individual, only to the pharmacies. I am getting really frustrated as this has been going on for me for six years, ever since the US started buying medicines from other countries.

DeeDee Says:

Hers has to be either Succinate or Tartrate if it is a generic. I can't tell you exactly what the difference is between these 2...must be a different active ingredient.

Hi, I am reading all of these stories on weaning off Metoprolol but I am trying to wean off.. I was taking 50mgs. in morning and 50 at night.. But actually the drug wasn't really working that well so I started incorporating natural stuff and my bp was doing fine. Now I have decided to just go natural if I can or go to a lower dose of another bp medication.. Def. want to get off Metoprolol but I know the side effects so the doctor told me to go from 100mgs. to 75 for two weeks and then down from here .. I have decided that was way too fast after reading how bad it is to wean so I decided to take it much slower and go a bit longer each time.. So far I have had the palpitations early in morning but not so much so when I do I immediately take l/8 spoon of sea salt in water and drink it down and that stops the palpitations really quick.. Not regular salt but celtic sea salt or regular sea salt..I am also doing acupressure from utube videos .. My bp went up a bit but I am hoping and praying I find the right combos which is very challenging.. but I do know I want to get off this drug even if it takes longer.. I hope I can find something to incorporate to get the bp down with this drug or maybe find a better suited drug and find the alternative things.. This is highly frustrating and I feel for everyone who took this drug......I also just read about the water cure.. everything humanely possible.

I feel for everyone going through this.. and hope and pray for peace and freedom and good health.

DeeDee- I had the exact same problem. If you ask your doctor to write the prescription with the NDC number for Par metaprolol (look for it on one of your old bottles) and "dispense as written", the pharmacy will order it for you. I didn't know this until a pharmacist told me they can do this. I hope this helps!

Ken in AZ Says:

Recently moved from CVS TX where I always obtained PAR. My new pharmacy in AZ is Walgreens. Just filled my script and received Metoprolol ER Succ 50mg. However, I just compared the pill from PAR to the WATSON and am totally confused because the WATSON is twice the thickness of the PAR but same diameter. Is this strange or should I return to Walgreens and ask why?

Janice Says:

why is the Metoporal scored if it is ER. I was told you cannot cut ER meds as they do not work right.

My insurance recently offered me mail order refills and I figured getting 90 day supply was mor convenient than every 30 so I filled out the form and soon rceived my 90 day supply. I record BP readings at least 2 X daily as my cardiologist recently ran several expensive tests based on my symptoms. As soon as I started taking the new pills which are much larger ( Watson labs) than what I was formerly getting from CVS thee was a marked increase in my BP readings daily for the past
3 weeks. I notified my insurance company and they said there is a provision in my policy for me to obtain the original Toprol based on this issue but I would need to obtain it from local pharmacy 30 day supply at a time. I contacted CvS explained and they immediately called Optum Rx and just called me back to inform me my prescription will be ready for pick up in 1 hour! Can't wait to get back to healthy readings and stop feeling like in going to have a heart attack every day!
