Toprol xl vs metoprolol tartrate

Common Questions and Answers about Toprol xl vs metoprolol tartrate

toprol

The difference between Lopressor and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>toprol</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>xl</span> is the release time (12 hrs <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>vs</span> 24 hrs). Since you're still taking your doses twice daily, you should experience the same results. If not, the generic toprol xl 25 mg is available again.
Unfortunately the refill arrived as 50MG <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>me<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>toprol</span>ol</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tartrate</span>. Now as I understand it, the difference between the two is <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>me<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>toprol</span>ol</span> Succinate is Extended Release and metoprolol tartrate is Immediate Release...is this a big deal? Not sure if this was planned or an oversight.
