Frequently asked questions about metoprolol ER

Metoprolol ER is the extended-release version of metoprolol - a prescription medication used to treat high blood pressure, chest pain (angina), and heart attacks.

It is a type of drug called a beta-blocker, which means that it reduces your heart rate and blood pressure, takes strain off of your heart, and improves cardiovascular function.

Metoprolol ER treats conditions related to the heart and blood vessels. It can be used to treat high blood pressure - either on its own or in combination with other medications your doctor prescribes.

Metoprolol ER is used in the long-term treatment of angina pectoris, chest pain that occurs when the heart muscles don’t get the amount of blood they need. This is often due to plaque buildup in the arteries. It can be used following a heart attack to increase a patient’s chances of survival.

Metoprolol ER belongs to a category of medications known as beta-blockers. Beta-blockers block the effects of the hormone adrenaline (or epinephrine). This relaxes and dilates your blood vessels, improving blood flow and lowering your blood pressure. Beta-blockers also relax the muscles in your heart, causing it to beat more slowly and less powerfully. This also contributes to lowering blood pressure, as well as reducing your heart’s workload.

Because of the speed with which it is administered, metoprolol tartrate may be more effective as a treatment for conditions requiring immediate release of the medicine, such as acute heart attacks, while metoprolol succinate may be more effective as a treatment for conditions like chronic heart failure. Ask your doctor which dose form may be right for you.

While there are some common side effects associated with metoprolol, it is important to remember that your doctor prescribed this medication because they believe that its ability to keep your blood pressure under control outweighs any adverse side effects it may cause.

However, you may still experience some common metoprolol side effects. These may include:

  • Low energy or drowsiness
  • Cold hands and feet, due to reduced blood flow
  • Diarrhea
  • Constipation
  • Shortness of breath or wheezing
  • Itchiness or rash

Contact your doctor if these side effects are severe or do not go away.

More severe side effects of metoprolol may include:

  • Dizziness
  • Slowed heart rate (bradycardia)
  • Low blood pressure
  • Depression

Call your doctor if any of these side effects persist or worsen, or if you experience any other side effects.

Tell your doctor if you are pregnant, breast feeding, have other medical conditions, or are taking any other medications.

This is not a complete list of side effects associated with metoprolol ER. For a complete list of metoprolol ER side effects, visit the National Institutes of Health’s DailyMed page for Metoprolol ER for more information.

When taken for high blood pressure, you can expect to take metoprolol ER for one week before your doctor can see an effect.

When taken for chest pain or to prevent a second heart attack, metoprolol ER has a preventative effect. It is important to take it regularly as prescribed, not just when you feel symptoms.

Even if you don’t feel any different, the medication is still working. Remember that high blood pressure rarely causes physical symptoms, so metoprolol may still be working - even if you don’t feel any different.

Do not stop using metoprolol suddenly, or your condition could worsen. You may even put yourself at increased risk of having a heart attack. Ask your doctor how to safely stop using this medicine.

Metoprolol ER is intended for once daily administration. The usual starting dose is between 25 and 100 mg per day and will be individualized to your needs depending on the condition you are treating, your age, and other factors. After monitoring your body’s response to the treatment the doctor may increase your dose incrementally until a minimum effective dose has been established.

Do not crush or chew this medication. Doing so can release all of the drug at once, increasing the risk of side effects. Read all instructions on the packaging label and take metoprolol ER only as prescribed.

Metoprolol ER is currently only available via prescription. This means the use of this drug must be authorized by a licensed health care provider.
