Can metropolol cause shortness of breath if you don't have asthma or any lung disease..Been taking it due to heart surgery?

In brief: Possible

It sometimes gives that sensation being sob.
But i would suggest to get evaluation before blaming to any drug. It should not be stopped without discussing with cardiologist.

Talk to your dr. About your symptoms.
Metoprolol usually wouldn't cause sob. Not much information here, your dr. Can advise you far better.

No, it would not . In fact , even among those with asthma, its adverse impact on lung function is minimal according to a recent study. Do not stop your metopolol.
