Probably ok: Most likely there will be no problem but always be aware of how you feel when adding a new medicine! beta blockers ( metoprolol) can make you fell blah / slowed down and Clonazepam ( klonopin) can also make you tired but no likely bad interactions.

Yes: It is ok to take the metoprolol while continuing the klonopin (clonazepam). There are no interactions known but if you have any problems with either medication you should follow up with your doctor.
