Unlikely: that a second 5 mgm will harm you however if you experience any dizziness get checked! A home blood pressure kit would be very useful (for a # of reasons) If you do not have one...get one...that way a situation like this can be easily "handled" at home....remotely (via Health Tap Prime for example....

My doctor has prescribed 50mg Toprol XL in the morning and 0.1mg Clonidine at night. Is this combo safe?
Can't take toprol XL because the acid base bothers my bladder but regular metoprolol isn't controlling my high tachycardia well. Any other options?
I was taking 50mg of atenolol doctor suggested I switch to Toprol XL 50mg because the atenolol was wearing off fast. Second day on Toprol and it sucks. It takes too long to kick in I feel it's making anxiety worse. Switching back to atenolol safe?
No additional risk: You are on a lot of medication and they seem important - but do review them w/ your Dr(s) and always do when a new one is added. The melatonin adds no risk to the mix but some there already can cause moderate issues that ought not stop you but should be watched. Best wishes! ...Read more

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
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.
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.
BP ; blurry vision: Yes, if the BP drops, you can get blurry vision. My advise check the BP ; pulse if this happens again and a significant drop in any can cause dizziness and blurry vision. 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
