      What is Metoprolol

      Safe & Substantial Savings on Generic Drugs
      Generic drug Metoprolol is considered just as safe and effective as its brand-name equivalents such as Lopressor and Toprol. Did you know that buying the generic drug Metoprolol from IDM is much cheaper than buying the Lopressor or Toprol brand drug?

      Metoprolol is used to treat chest pain (angina) and high blood pressure (hypertension). By lowering high blood pressure, this drug helps prevent kidney problems and strokes. It belongs to a group of drugs called beta-blockers, which is also used to treat or prevent heart attacks. This medicine may also be used to treat other conditions as determined by your doctor.

    What does Metoprolol treat?

    Metropolol treats medical conditions such as chest pain (angina), heart failure and high blood pressure. It belongs to the class of drugs called beta-blockers that work by blocking the action of some of the naturally occurring chemicals that impact the heart and blood vessels. This brings down the blood pressure and eases blood flow. Lowering blood pressure cuts down the risk of strokes and heart attacks occurring. Your physician may use this to treat other ailments based on their discretion.

    Dosage Instructions

    Follow the Metropolol dosage prescribed by your physician. The dosage could vary based on individual patient requirements. It must always be taken with food or after a meal. Always follow your physician’s instructions or go by the directions on the prescription drug label.

    Missed a dose?

    Take it immediately once you remember. In case, this time is less than four hours closer to the next dosage, skip it and get back to the prescribed schedule. Never take a double dose unless specifically instructed by your doctor.


    Don’t waste any time and seek immediate medical attention.

    Drug Interactions

    Drug interactions must be considered before starting to take any kind of drug. Drug interactions might happen either when Metropolol is taken along with another drug or when taken with particular foods. To prevent any kind of negative interaction, make sure you inform your doctor of any drugs you are taking including non-prescription medication, OTCs, health supplements like vitamins, minerals, herbal medicine and so on which may interfere with the effect of Metropolol.

    It may interact with: 

    • Albuterol/Salbutamol 
    • Chloroquine 
    • Clonidine 
    • Digoxin 

    It may also interact with anti-diabetic drugs, anti-malarial medications, calcium channel blockers, alpha-blockers and barbiturates. This is not an exhaustive list though.

    Appraise your doctor of any medical conditions that you are suffering from and your family history of medical ailments. It’s important that you do not stop or start taking any medicine without the consent of your physician.

    Possible Side Effects

    Metropolol does not have any major side effects and if any, they are minor and temporary. In rare cases, there might be major side effects and immediate medical attention must be sought. Side effects cannot be anticipated in advance.

    Some of the side effects are as headache, insomnia, dizziness, light-headedness, diarrhea, tiredness, vomiting and problems with the vision. This is not the complete list though.

    In case, there is a change in intensity of side effects or if any new side effects develop, make sure you consult your doctor.

    What to ask your doctor before you start on Metropolol

    • Can I take Metropolol along with other drugs?
    • Are there certain foods, beverages and products to be avoided while on Metropolol?
    • What is the dosage of Metropolol to be consumed? How should I use Metropolol?
    • How will Metropolol work in my body?
    • How can the drug interactions and side effects of Metropolol be minimized or completely avoided?


    The health and medical information that we have provided are meant to supplement and not substitute the advice of your physician, pharmacists or other health care professionals.

    What does XL Succinate mean ? Metoprolol XL succinate 100mg Reply
    Replied by Pharmacist @ IDM
    Hi, Succinate is a salt or an ester of succinic acid and XL means Extended Release formulation whereas Extended release of Metoprolol succinate which releases the drug effect slowly in the body and it can usually be taken once a day. And if you go for plain Metoprolol which is an immediate-release formulation and it is taken multiple times each day.
