Avatar f tn the difference in effect is likely because the Toprol, being time released, achieves a lower Peak Plasma Concentration than does the metoprolol. So, you might mimic those pharmacokinetics somewhat by taking the metoprolol with say... a big meal. Fat in a meal slows down transit time even more. Or have you checked if you can take two half-doses per day, to reduce PPC? Also, which metoprolol are you taking, succinate or tartrate?
Avatar f tn I, too, am planning to taper off my Beta Blocker (I take Metoprolol) in a few months if my ablation was successful. I have looked into this subject at some length and have heard it can be very difficult to do, especially if you have been taking it long term -- as I have for more than 20 years.
