Avatar m tn Well share you're experiences with the metoprolol vs propranolol... It can't be all in my head, I mean the side effects from the metoprolol are horrible...

Avatar f tn Because of the recent shortage of metoprolol succinate, my general practitioner refilled my prescription as metoprolol tartrate, but without informing me of the change. I was previously taking 25 mg in the am and 12.5 mg in the evening of the generic Toprol XL. Now I am taking 25 mg in the morning of generic Lopressor, and another 25 in the evening, but less than a full 12 hours apart. For example I will take the 25mg at 7 am, another 12.5 at 2pm and another 12.5 at around 6 or so.
Avatar m tn Did you ever get the two types of Metoprolol straightened out? The two are similar in weight vs. strength, but I thought that the Succinate was only taken once a day. The Tartrate is much cheaper of the two. I also take 50mg/2X a day of this. MVP would affect blood flow, but I doubt it would have an affect on rate. Of course, the last time I checked, there was no "M.D." after my name, so it's just a guess. Keep us informed of what you find. Oh...

Avatar m tn My experience with a beta blocker (Metoprolol) found it did squat to prevent them. It did make then easier to convert. I got 3-5 episodes per month. Will it be successful? Well that depends a lot on what kind of SVT it is, and where it's exactly located. But the odds are in your favor. Stick around and let us know how you make out. It's a piece of cake, very little pain, and you're up and around the next day.
