Metoprolol Succinate Er

Susan Says:

I switched pharmacies and the pills look different - it didn't concern me, and research says they are the same thing. However, I FEEL different. My heart starts racing, then returns to normal, and I have tremendous pressure in my head. Pharmacy A uses round white pill w/ M 100 on one side, scored on othe. Pharmacy B is round white with M 3 on it, and a score between the characters, blank on other side. B is the one I am struggling with. Would there be a difference in how I feel?

Hello, Susan! How are you?

Yes, they are both 100mg Metoprolol tables, they're just manufactured by different companies.

However, under the Hatch-Waxman Act of 1984, there can be slight differences in the amount of the active ingredient in generics, so this new one may be a little stronger than the one you're used to taking.

Have you checked your blood pressure and heart rate when these symptoms appear?

Other side effects, as listed by the FDA, may possibly include nausea, dizziness, increased urination and hypotension.

Have you informed your doctor of the problem?
