Hi, saw your email too.
My experience with BB is limited to Toprol XL
and Metoprolol SL (SL, XL
, SR...all the same, slow to
dissipate in the system - may support once in 24 hour dose), so I've used both the trademark and generic forms. They seem to be the same, lower HR and BP.
When on 100 mg I was in a cardio rehabilitation program follow open heart surgery to repair the mitral valve. During the rehabilitation exercise I was on a 3-point EKG and a nurse checked my BP every 5-10 minutes.
