Can I Drink Grapefruit Juice When Taking Metoprolol Succinate

I am taking metoprolol succinate er 50 Mg twice a day. It is now more expensive. Is it OK to ask Dr for metoprolol tartrate 50 Mg twice a day? Equal?
I am taking metoprolol succinate ER 25mg once a day for my high bp from 1 month. But now my bp is 120/80. Can I reduce dose to 12.5 mg?
No not yet: The fact that your BP is now 120/80 (normal is 130/80 or less) is because the medicine is working. Depending on your co-morbidities and age, you may be best served staying on it. 25 mg is a very very small dose, by the way. Having said that, if u want to get off of it, make a sincere effort to limit ur dietary salt intake to 2000 mg or less/day, and exercise atleast 300 min/ week.
I m 44years my BP is mostly coming 130/ 90-92.I m taking metoprolol succinate extended release tablets. Is it ok at this age. I felt giddines once?

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.See 1 more doctor answer
Metoprolol: Tartrate is shorter acting drug than succinate so can be additive for about 12 hours if taken simultaneously.
What us the recommended dose of metoprolol succinate in af if patient had 1 degree and RBBB and using amiodarone 100 mg?
The dose of: metoprolol succinate is determined by the clinical condition of the patient. There is NO "recommended" dose, it is determined by the treating health care provider and individualized for the patient. It can vary from less than 12.5 mg per day to as much as 400 mg per day.
Normally, yes: Taking them at the same time should not be a problem for most people.
My father is72yr hypertensive on metoprolol succinate 50 mg his body now is 150/80 his s.creatinine 1.58what other drug can I give him to control Bp.?
Bp control: You could give him 100 mg of metoprolol succinate daily.
No: It's an irrational combination. One is long acting and the other is short acting. Use one once a day or the other twice a day.
Different meds: Although they are both the same medicine, they are taken differently. Tartrate is a shorter acting form meant to be taking 2 or 3 times a day. Succinate is a long acting form meant to be taken once a day. To me, it doesn't make sense to be on both.See 1 more doctor answer

I just noticed some hair loss on far head very little. Could this be from medications? I am taking metoprolol succinate. Been on it for 14 months.
Not likely: Angela, while any side effect can theoretically happen with any drug, hair loss is not a common side effect of metoprolol. One thing you may want to check is to make sure your thyroid levels are normal as that can impact both blood pressure and hair growth. I'd suggest a call to your primary care provider
Would an initial dosage of 250 mg metoprolol succinate be too much? I have mild hypertension and tachycardia.
High: The starting dose of metoprolol varies according to the indications for its use and the exact condition of the patient. However, a starting dose of 250 mg would be high in most typical situations. Daily doses up to 400 mg and even higher are used in some situations, but not as a starting dose.
