Metoprolol Succinate Medication
May have acxidentally forgot to take medication for high blood pressure. It's metoprolol succinate. Office said it would be ok once. Is this true?

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 ...Read more

Can 100mg metoprolol succinate affect vision? I cut back to 50mg and it unexpectedly improved. Bp went up so i went back to 100mg and back to readers.

Increase fluid intake and avoid abrupt changes in posture will help. Usually these symptoms will subside in few days and i usually advise my patients to start lower and increase ad long the medication is tolerated. ...Read more

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
Metoprolol: Tartrate is shorter acting drug than succinate so can be additive for about 12 hours if taken simultaneously. ...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

No, but discuss it: Always get full info on a new Rx - know the pros and cons, what to expect and do if there's a problem - in detail! Call to get this ASAP.
