Common Questions and Answers about Metoprolol tartrate 25mg


1933354 tn?1323366434 Keep in mind that when you switched from Toprolol ER (Metoprolol Succinate) to Lopressor (Metoprolol Tartrate), you lost the timed released advantage. If you were taking 25mg. pills of each medication, you are loosing a great deal of the latter drug's effectiveness as the day wears on. The half life of Metoprolol Tartrate is only 3-7 hours. So you must take it at least twice a day for it to be effective the entire 24 hour period. Also 25mg., once a day is a a very small dose.
Avatar m tn Propranolol has a reportedly better shortening effect on Long Q than Metoprolol. Are you taking Metoprolol Tartrate? Metoprolol has a very short half life; typically 5 hours or so. In that time, half of it is metabolized. Physicians usually prescribe Metoprolol to be taken twice a day beca use of his. MetoprololSuccinate is the time release version, and that is taken once a day. In addition 25mg. is an exceedingly small dose.

Avatar f tn Hello, I am going to be applying to receive a medical marijuana card for treatment of my Tourette, severe anxiety disorder and PTSD. I take 25mg of Metoprolol Tartrate every morning solely for anxiety to slow my heart rate down (I tend to get anxiety episodes where tachycardia is the main symptom). I’m wondering if anyone (preferably a doctor, of course) would know if medical cannabis would interact with beta blockers, such as Metoprolol Tartrate.
Avatar f tn I would suggest that you try and push through the tired feeling and you have should adjust to the drug. The plasma half life of Metoprolol Tartrate is around 4 hours for most people. This means that every 4 hours, the amount of drug in your blood is diminished by 50%. Some quick math will show you that within 24 hours, there is practically nothing remaining. This also means that there is minimal therapeutic effect as the day wears on.
Avatar f tn i take the metoprolol tartrate 25mg one pill a day but i take 1/2 when i wake up and 1/2 at bed time... like every twelve hours basically and it has helped me with my sinus tachy.
Avatar n tn I am taking metoprolol tartrate 25mg twice and day because my heart rate was a little high when I saw my doctor 122 bpm. I was on 50mg twice a day, but my doc cut it due to side effects. I'm still suffering side effects, stiff arms, legs, and depression. I am also having some difficulty with my blood sugar, stays low. I feel like all I do is eat, when I asked my cardiologist he said to talk to my general practitioner.
Avatar m tn About 6 months ago I had a brief spell of a-fib that caused a chain reaction of doctor visits, cariologist visits, tests that all came out normal. My cardiologist put me on metoprolol tartrate 25mg twice per day. Although he told me it was a benign drug I have many side effects including fatigue and drowsiness, some dizzyness, and loss of sex drive and ED problems. The side effects were really hampering my ability to function throughout the day.
Avatar f tn So they released me on beta blockers once they got it under control. 25mg Metoprolol Tartrate. twice a day Its only been 2 days on this. But already these pills have me a little worried and im wondering if someone can ease my mind! However i will say this. for the first time in 3 months I no longer am aware of my heart rate 24/7 - You have no idea what a mental relief that is!! PLUS no more jumping/flutter/skipping beats!!! So, the problem? my heart rate seems really....
Avatar n tn About a month ago my doctors put me on Metoprolol Succinate 25mg 2x daily and sent me to a cardiologist who upped my metoprolol to 50 mg 2x daily. In the last 2 weeks since being on the 50 mg dose my feet have started to hurt and burn mostly from the balls of me feet to my toes but last few days the pain and burning has slowly creeped up into my lower calf muscles and ankles.
Avatar f tn My husband takes metoprolol tartrate. He only has one month of medication left and refuses to go back to the Dr. How can I wean him off of the drug so he doesn't have a heart attack or something?
Avatar n tn The SCARY thing is that in Europe they do not have Metoprolol Succinate Extended Release (TOPROL-XL). They only have Metoprolol tartrate, which for me is as bad as having none or even worse. I just moved to Europe and mnow realized this and what am I going to do? I can order Toprol XL from Canada and Turkey and even from Mauritius etc. yet European doctors do not prescribe it. What am I going to DO??
1464004 tn?1384139333 I've had a lot of years with Metoprolol, from 25mg. to 200mg. What I feel is my heart is a little slow to respond to demands. Once it gets up to speed, I feel really good for a 63 year old. I found it took a little while to become acclimated to it. But now I feel no side effects except for the heart thing. That can feel like a heavy feeling in the chest until it gets up to speed. I've been on a steady 75mg. now for 3 years.
Avatar m tn Metoprolol comes in two formulations, Metoprolol Tartrate and Metoprolol Succinate. If you were prescribed the Tartrate variety, 50mg, once a day as you stated, then you were on a beta blocker roller coaster with a steep peak followed by a deep valley. Metoprolol has a rather short half life of approximately 6 hours, so in 24 hours, 50mg is nearly completely metabolized. This type should be taken twice a day.
Avatar n tn Hi I see this post is from long ago its now 2016 but Im pregnant with my second child and am a very high risk due to my heart problems my heart doc put me on metoprolol tartrate 25mg twice a day. Im wondering how safe it really is for the baby and if anyone thinks taking it give Someone a better chance of making through the pregnancy. We have a planned c-section so that I dont bust another whole in my valve, but Im very scared this may harm my child.
Avatar n tn I took 2 different versions of metoprolol, Toprol (metoprolol tartrate) and Toprol XL (metoprolol succinate). The second one is the extended release version. Toprol made my symtoms worse but Toprol XL worked fairly well in controlling my conditions, PVC's and PSVT. I was taking 50 mg a day in both cases. The only thing that affected me was a slight feeling of dizziness at times and some mental fatigue.
Avatar f tn Again, on my experience and reading, I believe many may get sufficient medication taking Atenolol once a day, in general this is not the case with Metoprolol Tartrate (normal release). There is a higher cost slow release version of Metoprolol. My interest in Atenolol was more than the half-life of the medication. As you may have read my experience so far confirms the Atenolol is longer lasting in my body... only one sample, others may get different results.
Avatar f tn So I was on 50mg Metoprolol tartrate twice a day, now the doctor told me to cut the 50mg in half and take 25mg twice a day for 3 weeks, then 25mg once a day for another 3 weeks, then 25mg every other day for 3 weeks, and then every other 2 days and then every other 3 days then stop...... Is this a good method?
Avatar m tn My bp had always been slightly high and I was never put on anything. Well now I've taken metoprolol 25mg tartrate twice a day for 2 days. My heart rate came down to 60 last night usually its never lower than 70. My bp has decreased slightly and it alleviated the pressure in my head and neck and I thought I was going to be able to have a good nights rest. But no now I am feeling almost every heart beat in my chest. It's keeping me up.
Avatar f tn Hi so I have periodic bouts of fast pulse, have had all the heart tests, all were normal. Also am thin and in decent shape. My cardiologist recently put me on 25mg Metoprolol twice a day, so 50mg a day. It's helped a lot overall. It's especially helped get rid of those skipped beats and noticeable palpitations I used to get. It's also definitely slowed my heart rate down. I've been taking it twice a day, once in morning and evening. I'm supposed to take it with food. Heres my question..
Avatar m tn I have the same problem. I'm on 25mg half of tab twice a day of the tartrate and I get pacs before my next dose, it's annoying I didn't have them this bad before.
Avatar m tn So my cardiologist said I am on such a small dose of Metoprolol Tartrate ER that I can just stop when ever I want to. I only take half of a half of 25mg in the morning and none at night. So I guess it is around 6mg daily. I have been doing this for about 3 weeks now. Today I went 2 days without metoprolol now my heart rate wont go down, annnd my blood pressure is 140/100!! This is so ridiculous since I'm on such a small dose.. How do I get out of this drug? I dont know what to do..
Avatar f tn If you're taking half of a 25mg pill of Metoprolol Succinate (the time release version of Metoprolol), you are taking 12mg per day, which is a teeny, tiny dose. By contrast, I'm on150mg per day, and I don't feel a thing from it. Some people can be on a dose as high as 400mg. per day. So I would try and put your dose level in perspective. Could 12mg per day affect you's possible.
612551 tn?1450025775 Following are my observations on day two of substituting Atenolol 25 mg twice a day for Metoprolol 25 mg twice a day.. both are regular, for Metoprolol it is called Tartrate, I think the Atenolol comes in only one normally longer lasting form. Today in the early afternoon, following my third 25 mg dose of Atenolol at about 9 AM, I noticed some dizziness when I rose from a time sitting.
Avatar m tn 25mg of metoprolol, regardless of whether is tartrate or succinate (which you are taking) is a very low dose. I'm on 75mg, and was on as high as 200mg, with zombie like effects. 100mg did me good though. Metoprolol is known for depressing heart rates. I don't know about Antenolol, but perhaps this is a lower dose and is having less of a side effect. By the way 100mg. did not affect my libido.
Avatar n tn Hi there, I just like to know and be updated of your Metoprolol Tartrate weaning...did you finally get rid of it? Were you monitoring your b.p. at the same time? Have you changed your lifestyle or diet at the same time weaning it? I am on this drug like you do before, 25 mg, for a month and a half now and I'm planning to taper off of this medication soon. My other problem is I have some kind of phobia with the b.p. gadget itself, every time I would like to get my b.p.
Avatar f tn I had been on Metoprolol Tartrate .25 2x day for over ten years. No really bad side effects other than drowsy in a.m. Did gain weight about 25 lbs through the years, but I don't really blame metoprolol, but blame over eating. On Weight watchers now and have lost 14 lbs. I was Prescribed metoprolol and aspirin after diagnosis of 50% blockage in main heart artery to reduce BP and prevent angina. Then After 11 years started getting rapid heart beat.
