Difference between metoprolol and metoprolol tartrate

Common Questions and Answers about Difference between metoprolol and metoprolol tartrate


Research on the web says that Atenolol is much longer lasting than <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>metoprolol</span></span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> suggests that <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>metoprolol</span></span> Tartrate has to be taken twice a day... Atenolol only once ! Strangle, again, my Cardiologist who issued a prescription for Atenolol upon my request to be allowed to try it is for 25 mg twice a day.
I hear the withdrawal symptoms are terrible as well <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> I'm not sure if i'll be able to tell the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>difference</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>between</span> the withdrawal and the original problem. I don't know exactly what it is that I'm asking, except for any more information or experience anyone has on either the palpitations from the cocaine or on the use of metoprolol. If you have any information at all it would be greatly appreciated.
Because of the recent shortage of metoprolol succinate, my general practitioner refilled my prescription as <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>metoprolol</span></span> tartrate, but without informing me of the change. I was previously taking 25 mg in the am and 12.5 mg in the evening of the generic Toprol XL. Now I am taking 25 mg in the morning of generic Lopressor, and another 25 in the evening, but less than a full 12 hours apart. For example I will take the 25mg at 7 am, another 12.5 at 2pm and another 12.5 at around 6 or so.
Hey there- I'm a 32 year old female who never knew I had Wolff-Parkinson-White Syndrome until one day I woke up <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> all of the sudden I felt dizzy <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> my heart wouldn't relax <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> I got all sweaty and felt hot and I yelled to my husband who came in and said I just started bobbing around until I fell over. He brought me into the bedroom where I apparently was not breathing was turning blue and had no pulse. He did a rescue breath on me and I came back.
My TEE was not a normally scheduled appointment, it came just 3 months after my last one because of a sudden onset of symptoms when I had never had any before. There was a stark <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>difference</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>between</span> the 2 tests (echo <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> TEE) but my Dr told me it may have been like that for some time but just not picked up by the echo. Jjc2005 - thanks for the response. We have no family history of heart related issues on either side of my family. Not sure where I got my wonderful genetics from.
My HR went up to 170bpm, I was sweating <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> my stomach burned. I got some ice cubes <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> placed them on my face <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> chest. I also took a xanax. I almost called 911. My HR was sooo fast. I don't think I felt it going that fast. The entire episode lasted 10 minutes. Was this a SVT or panic attack episode? I certainly was NOT stressed. Also, if I'm on a bet blocker, why would my heart race/pound at such a fast rate? Could this be a rebound effect since I take metoprololol in the morning?
Thanks you so much for posting your comment about the drug interactions <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>between</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>metoprolol</span></span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> grapefruit! My fiance wanted to eat a grapefruit <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> I remembered a reaction between the two...thank goodness for your help!!
I am now on Norpace XR and I may face the same issue with my medigap policy as far as the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>difference</span> in cost <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>between</span> XR <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> regular. I think the regular tablet can be taken 3 times a day, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> the XR 2 times per day. I, also, will discuss this with my cardio when I see him in a couple of weeks. Do you actually get to SEE your doctor when you have a problem?
Hi, I just wanted to say that I get awful palpitations <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> have done for a year whilst swinging <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>between</span> normal <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> hypo. But I am also undergoing a premature menopause too which can cause palpls, so I'm not sure how old you are, but you might want to look into that side too. But in any case, I was told by the experienced people here when I first joined that a lot of the symptoms of hyper and hypo overlap, and they don't always fit in with the traditional picture, ie.
The surgeon was unable to place stents or relieve either blockage at that time, and they sent me home with three new prescriptions for <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>metoprolol</span></span>, Amlodipine, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> Niacin. My question is, how common is it for an angioplasty to simply be impossible to accomplish? and can the medication changes I've received clear these blockages and eliminate the need to have an angioplasty at all (with the prerequisite lifestyle changes, which I have started to do)?
Long story short, I was put on sliding scale to pay for my physical exam through the hospital ER and then I was given an appt for the endocrine clinic for 3 months down the line, I am still very angry and extremely in tears because when everyone I spoke to that has Graves disease is telling me to get treated ASAP I can't get an appt earlier enough to save my own life.
The cardiologist put me on citalopram/tartrate <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> it didn't help. I got pregnant shortly after <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> had to stop taking it , after I had my son I decided I didn't want to go back on it and instead went and saw a doctor for anxiety disorder. He put me on celexa and since I rarley have PAC's or PVC's. My point is, that I suffered with this same thing for years and it was destroying my life!
