See answer: You can take those two together, but keep in mind, the beta-blocker class of meds can cause issues in people with respiratory illnesses. That is to say, the metoprolol may cause some worsening of your asthma or respiratory disease causing you to need more inhaler use etc. Best to let your dr. Know you are on that med with your respiratory disease. Best wishes.

Yes: Although it seems paradoxical, it is sometimes prudent to use a beta-blocker at the same time as a beta-agonist. I assume that the albuterol is being used as an inhaler. If you are wheezing, and you respond to albuterol, you may benefit from inhaled albuterol (typically a short course, as other therapies are likely to be beneficial in chronic use.) there can be untoward side effects.
