Complex: Normally when switching between these medications one would take equivalent total doses. However, Metoprolol Tartrate is at least 30% more bioavailable than Metoprolol Succinate (i.e., more drug is absorbed).

They have : The same efficacy. One is just taken once a day and the other 2x a day. Once a day is preferred by people who would like to take less number of pills.
