Toprol xl vs lopressor

Common Questions and Answers about Toprol xl vs lopressor


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 n tn Hi Everyone, I am taking Toprol XL 25 mg everyday for IST and mild hypertension. Both problems are well-controlled by BB. I'm planning to travel to Asia next month. I'm worried about what the elevation (especially sudden increase) will do to my HR & BP as I would be basically up in the air for at least 16 hours. Any idea? Thanks!
Avatar n tn I have read different opinion regarding Toprol Xl - does it really work on pvc? Logically it should make things worst... if it is meant to slow the heart rate down, I would think that the thumb would be more noticeable? What am I missing about this product? is 25mg per day a good starting dose? My primary care physician suggested to give it a try at 25 mg... it seems to help but now a whole lot - would 50mg do the trick?
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.
