Metoprolol is a beta blocker that is most commonly used to treat high blood pressure, and certain cardiac conditions.

It can cause drowsiness, as a side effect, along with nausea, dizziness, headache, and increased urination, but it doesn't usually cause a deep sleep like that.

What other medications is she on? This problem could be due to a combination of medications, or a medical condition.

I'll be happy to help, if I can, if you can post back with more details!

I have been on Metoprolol 25mg daily for a few years since my MI. I take my dose at night but have taken it during the day. I get a little slow but not close to putting me to sleep. She must be on a sleep aid or a med that will cause extreme drowsiness. BTW I'm a 62 y/o male.
