Avatar f tn The difference between Lopressor and Toprol XL is the release time (12 hrs vs 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.
Avatar f tn He has put me on 100mg metoprolol - I'll be taking the 2nd dose (50mg) in a few minutes. He wanted me on the brand name Toprol XL, but the pharmacies are having a hard time stocking it right now so I'm on the regular (not extended release) version, taking it in the a.m. and again in the p.m.
Avatar m tn Unfortunately the refill arrived as 50MG Metoprolol Tartrate. Now as I understand it, the difference between the two is Metoprolol Succinate is Extended Release and Metoprolol Tartrate is Immediate Release...is this a big deal? Not sure if this was planned or an oversight.
