Can switching medication, metropolol tartrate to succinate, cause dizziness and fatigue; if it does will it last for a couple of days?

Can switching medication, metropolol tartrate to succinate, cause dizziness and fatigue; if it does will it last for a couple of days?

It's dose dependent: The difference between the tartrate and succinate formulation is the half-life (how long the medicine is active in your blood stream).

If your overall dose is increased, you could experience fatigue and dizziness till you get used to the new dose. Be sure your BP isn't too low. ...Read more

Can I still get a thigh lift if I have high blood pressure? My high blood pressure is controlled with medication (i take lopressor (metoprolol tartrate) now). Am I still a good candidate for a thigh lift?

You: You should be able to have a thigh lift if your blood pressure is well-controlled on your blood pressure medication. Patients who have uncontrolled high blood pressure may even run higher right after surgery and the risks of bleeding and having to go back to the or to evacuate a hematoma or blood collection are greater. Therefore, you will want to make sure that your lood pressure is well-controlled in advance of your surgery. I would suggest getting your regular physician to check into that, and perhaps monitor your blood pressure on a few occasions to account for any variability. ...Read more
