More information

  • Usage

    Metoprolol is a beta blocker medication used to manage high blood pressure, chest pain and tachycardia (fast heart rate). Metoprolol, like atenolol, nebivolol and propranolol, specifically targets B1 adrenergic receptors in the muscle cells of the heart which makes it different from nonselective blockers such as Coreg (carvedilol). There are reports that metoprolol for anxiety is used off label as well. Metoprolol has a half life of up to seven hours in some people.

  • Metoprolol Tartrate – Side Effects

    Metoprolol, like other medications, can cause side effects. Side effects after metoprolol use include dizziness, fatigue, depression, shortness of breath, bradycardia, bronchospasm and diarrhea. Metoprolol should not be used by people with sinus bradycardia, heart block greater than first degree, or people with cardiogenic shock or overt cardiac failure. Metoprolol should also be avoided in people with a hypersensitivity or allergy to metoprolol, people with sick sinus syndrome, severe peripheral artery disorders or pheochromocytoma. All questions regarding metoprolol use should be discussed with one’s medical provider and pharmacist prior to use.

  • Cost Information

    Generic metoprolol is relatively affordable at under twenty cents per pill at many pharmacies. The low metoprolol cost is helpful to people who take metoprolol regularly. Additionally, some insurance plans may cover the cost of metoprolol at a pharmacy. Online metoprolol coupons may also be available to help defray the cost of metoprolol even further. Farmington Drugs & Medical Supplies takes pride in offering the most cost efficient services and prescriptions to our patients.

  • Dosage

    Metoprolol is typically incorporated into medications as metoprolol succinate and metoprolol tartrate. Metoprolol tartrate is the form of metoprolol used in Lopressor. As Lopressor, metoprolol tartrate is available as 50 mg and 100 mg tablets. Metoprolol tartrate is a white and mostly odorless crystalline powder that is soluble in water. Metoprolol can be administered via oral administration as well as intravenously.
