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?
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. ...Read more
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. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

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. ...Read more
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. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Diagnosed with cardiomyopothy. Prescribed metoprolol succinate 25mg . Ran out, have carvedilol 25mg old script. Can i take til i see new dr in 2 days?
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. ...Read more
