Strader10, since this is a generic medication, it is normal for your pharmacy to sometimes switch which manufacturer's product they carry, depending on what company was offering the cheapest price through their distributor at the time they had to restock their supply.

Are metoprolol and metoprol generics for lopressor?

The bottle from last month for my b.pressure medication lists the name as Metoprol but the bottle I just picked for this month lists the name Metoprolol and the pills aren't the same. I switched to a new pharmacy this month and I thought that might be the reason the pills are different. I am not able to go home now and compare the pills by searching for the description. I have one in my daily medication box and I did search it and it came back as a generic version of Lopressor. I feel my pulse is racing and that my B.P. is going up and I know I NEED to take it now. Is Lopressor in both of the medications I listed above? ## Lopressor is just a brand name for Metoprolol, so yes, these medications are all the same. The one listed as Metoprol was just an abbreviation. Learn more Metopro... ...

low pulse, irregular heart beat ## I take both Lisinopril (10 mg daily) and Metoprolol (50 mg daily. 1/2 AM & 1/2 PM) These pills look a lot alike and it is possible to get them mixed up if not cautious. I did this about three times in a row last week. OOPS. But I'm still here and don't feel any side effects. I will be more careful in the future. Just thought I'd post this. ## i switched my metoprolol by mylan and my lisinopril by mylan to metoprolol by greenstone and my lisinopril by sandoz because it was cheaper but it sent me to the hospital. once arriving at the hospital they took my blood and said that i had a heart attack.. it was scary because i didnt feel right at all after i started takeing the generic forms. now im paying more for mylan but i feel as good as i ... ...

Metoprolol Succinate ER

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 on... ...

Received new tablet as noted above, and now experiencing shortness of breath, tachycardia, and b/p 150/100.

Lopressor brand availability

I use to take lopressor, the long pink pill. They switched me to metoprolol succinate 2 yrs ago. I liked the brand name lopressor better as it had no side effects and kept my blood pressure down.

Does anyone know this answer? ## From what I can tell, it is still available, but that doesn't necessarily mean that your insurance will cover it for you, since the generics are usually cheaper. What type of side effects have you been experiencing? The FDA lists the typical ones as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, increased urination, and hypotension.
