Is it ok to use doxylamine succinate at 25-50 mg for more than 2 weeks. Also how long of a break is needed between 2 wks of using it? Thanks

Metropolol half life is 3-7 hours. How can Metropolol Succinate stay in the bloodstream for 24 hours if half life is only 3-7 hours?
They are different: Metoprolol does have a 3-7 half-life, but that’s metoprolol tartrate, which is immediately absorbed into the bloodstream. The succinate version of metoprolol, however, also comes in a tablet (“extended-release”) that gives a person small amounts of medication over 24 hours. So the half-life - the rate the person eliminates the drug - is not different, but the rate the tablet releases it is. ...Read more

I feel your sadness due to loss of your loved on and feeling in a state of disbelief or overwhelmed with many emotions.
Doxylamine is an antihistamine for allergy. It is not a medication for relaxation, sleep, anxiety or sadness.
