Hi there - yep like the others I'd recommend going to your closest ER. Hopefully you are there now. I hope you are feeling better soon. I googled and this is what it said about overdose of Metoprol Tartrate OVERDOSE Signs and Symptoms Potential signs and symptoms associated with overdosage with metoprolol tartrate are bradycardia, hypotension, bronchospasm, and cardiac failure. On the basis of the pharmacologic actions of metoprolol tartrate, the following general measures should be employed. Elimination of the Drug: Gastric lavage should be performed. Bradycardia: Atropine should be administered. If there is no response to vagal blockade, isoproterenol should be administered cautiously. Hypotension: A vasopressor should be administered (e.g., levarterenol or dopamine). Bronchospasm: A beta2-stimulating agent and/or a theophylline derivative should be administered. Cardiac Failure: A digitalis glycoside and diuretic should be administered. In shock resulting from inadequate cardiac contractility, administration of dobutamine, isoproterenol, or glucagon may be considered. CONTRAINDICATIONS Hypertension and Angina: Metoprolol tartrate is contraindicated in sinus bradycardia, heart block greater than first degree, cardiogenic shock, and overt cardiac failure (see WARNINGS). Myocardial Infarction: Metoprolol tartrate is contraindicated in patients with a heart rate <45 beats/min; second- and third-degree heart block; significant first-degree heart block (P-R interval ³0.24 sec); systolic blood pressure <100 mmhg; or moderate-to-severe cardiac failure (see WARNINGS).

Metoprolol Tartrate and Metoprolol Succinate together?
Hello...thanks for your answers...I am not using it for a heart issue. It's for minor elevated BP. Thanks for your answers. :-)
Asked by John Ottalagano 5 months ago.
Metoprolol is a selective β1 receptor blocker used in treatment of several diseases of the cardiovascular system, especially hypertension. The active substance metoprolol is employed either as metoprolol succinate or metoprolol tartrate (where 100 mg metoprolol tartrate corresponds to 95 mg metoprolol succinate). The tartrate is an immediate-release and the succinate is an extended-release formulation. Extended-release (long-acting) metoprolol also is used in combination with other medications to treat heart failure. Metoprolol is in a class of medications called beta blockers. It works by relaxing blood vessels and slowing heart rate to improve blood flow and decrease blood pressure. Take metoprolol exactly as directed. Do not take more or less of it or take it more often than prescribed by your doctor. Answered by Kaitlyn Lutfy 5 months ago.
You should probably ask a doctor, because they are medications that have too do with the heart, but they pretty much do the same thing. I don't know what would happen if you mixed them together. Might cause an overdose, but it might not. 50/50 chance. Answered by Samira Caliendo 5 months ago.
This is a question I would ask the prescriber. Indeed the 2 forms mentioned will absorb differently, however 1 in the morning and 1 at night comes to 200mg and you certainly do not want to over do your blood pressure medicine. You need to at least call the office of your doctor and have it clarified. Answered by Audria Maker 5 months ago.
Metoprolol Long Acting Answered by Bertha Oba 5 months ago.
it can have those side effects, it varies person to person. the more common side effects are that you get tired easily and feel cold since the drug reduces circulation a bit. lots of times the side effects diminish somewhat or sometimes go away completely after a week or two. tell him to talk to the pharmacist if he has concerns. if hes concerned or the side effects are really bothering him, he could switch to a different class of drugs like a diuretic or ACE inhibitor that tend to have less side effects. and yeah, if he reduces the sodium in his diet and starts exercising his blood pressure might go down and he could get off the meds Answered by Margrett Gulliksen 5 months ago.

Metoprolol tartrate?? Help!?
Also, please do not tell me to call my doctor, I DID. I've already cut the dose in half once my blood pressure was lower than it has been today. My doctor told me to stop it all together.

Asked by Ross Barkie 5 months ago.
I am currently take 12.5 mg of Metoprolol tartrate twice daily. I have only been on it since Sunday morning. At first I took 25 mg twice daily but on Monday my blood pressure was 100/57 with an average heart rate of 60, sometimes going down into the 50's and I was really dizzy do my doctor told me to start halfing the pills to 12.5 mg daily. So I've been doing that since Monday nights dose. Today my blood pressure has gotten as low as 99/57 and pulse the same. I don't feel as dizzy but I am very tired, have muscle aches and feel a little short of breath. My doctor told me to stop the metoprolol all together. The reason I went on the metoprolol was for rapid pulse due to panic attacks and stress induced high blood pressure. When resting and calm my blood pressures really low and now with the meds even in an anxious state my blood pressure is under 125/80. I guess my question is for those who have taken metoprolol did your blood pressure get this low at first and then go back up to a normal range? I have had no panic attacks since started metoprolol because my heart has not been able to get over 102 when I'm feeling anxious. So if my blood pressure wil eventually return to normal I would like to stick with this a while. Also, my doctor said I haven't been on it long enough to need to tamper off so he told me just to stop all together. I have only taken 7 doses all together, 4 of which were only half a dose. My question is has anyone been on metoprolol for this short amount of time and then stopped taking it all of a sudden? Did you have any I'll effects of doing this? Thanks!

Rachel, Metoprolol tartrate is a beta blocker and among other things, it does a fantastic job of blocking panic attacks and ensuring that blood pressure and pulse do not become too high. Sometimes, especially when a patient starts such a drug, it can work a little TOO well. Please contact your doctor and report your pulse and blood pressure. It may be that you need a slight dosage adjustment, even just for a short period, before eventually returning to the dose you are taking now, which is probably completely appropriate after you have had a period of time in which to accomodate. Very best wishes. Answered by Somer Didion 5 months ago.

I'm 33, overweight, african american female and live a very stressful life. i went to the er on thursday july 9. my blood pressure was high so he prescribed me metoprolol tartrate; he only prescribed me a 30 day supply and I only take one a day; no refills. after doing some research i find out that i must be weened off of this medicine instead of just stopping. i have no medical insurance and since he only gave me a 30 day supply; what would you do? i get paid next friday and i am going to see can a doctor see me. I also heard that just taking 25mg a day of this pill; I probably won't need to be weened off. Another question. I also have bad allergies; what o-t-c allergy medicine can I take with this pill? Thanks and sorry if any confusion. Answered by Junko Budd 5 months ago.
More often they limit the number of days that you take metoprolol to check if it works, or so the body will not be dependent on it. It is not a cure for high blood pressure but rather a medication that just can help bring it low. It is a good thing that you will see a doctor again so he can determine if you will still need to take the medication or your blood pressure in under control at the moment. You need to be weaned off if your dosage is high and you have been taking it for a long time. However, 30 days at a pill a day is minimal therefore safe to stop. On an allergy medication, you may need to ask a doctor on what is best. Answered by Kai Decroo 5 months ago.
Hi!! It is used to bring down high blood pressure, and to regulate ones heart beat mainly. It is also used to keep control of pressure in the eyes in a person with Glaucoma, but i believe in this case for only a limited time. Obviously it has, in each case, to be strictly monitored at all times. Hysteria is probably helped by the administration of metroprolol tartrate in small measured doses, but i am not sure of this. There are various strengths in the use of eye drops. Answered by Flavia Sorrells 5 months ago.
For your allergies you can take Mucinex, 24 hour Claratin, or Benadryl. I would stay on the dosage of Metoprolol he gave you. Yes, you do have to be weaned off of this medication, otherwise your BP can go even higher than when you started it. Secondly, to be able to get off of the medication, you have to have a change of lifestyle. Exercise, eat right, take care of yourself. Until yo lose weight you will be one that medication or a stronger one. Answered by Mary Tolayo 5 months ago.

So I haven't taken any metoprolol at all until yesterday; at about 2:50 pm in the afternoon I decided to take about 1000mg, than about 10 hrs. and 40 minutes later at 1:30 am this morning another 1000mg. It's currently 4:13 pm in the afternoon (over 25 hrs. from the time I took my first dose of metoprolol) and yet I do not feel and different, no side effects nothing. Should I even bother continuing to take metoprolol; I don't think it's working? Answered by Rebeca Balfe 5 months ago.
Unless you've been to med school (and even if you had), self medication is a bad idea. Metoprolol is a potent beta blocker. Dosing is guided by heart rate, bp,a few other factors. You likely didn't take 1000mg. If you had, you'd be dead. The most I've ever seen is 200mg twice daily. Just because you don't FEEL a difference doesn't mean it's not working.

What happens if you take metoprolol tartrate 100mg and you dont need it?
im just wondering what would happen if you took this drug and you didnt need it at all
Asked by Marceline Mcclatchey 5 months ago.
Metoprolol is used in combination with other medications or alone to treat high blood pressure and in some cases is prescribed after heart attacks to increase survival rates. If one was to take a tablet and is in no need of it, it could cause: stomach pains, trouble sleeping, constipation, diarrhea, heartburn, nausea, vomiting, drowsiness and in some more of the serious cases, severe allergic reactions. I recommend not taking any medications unless notified by your physician or pharmacist. If you're unsure about whether or not you should take the medication, don't take it without asking a trained professional. Answered by Elena Bertke 5 months ago.

Asked by Clara Pachelo 5 months ago.
Metoprolol is a blood pressure medication. It's used in combination with other drugs on patients who have high blood pressure. It's also used to prevent chest pain and to increase survival after a heart attack. Answered by Isis Zuercher 5 months ago.
Metoprolol is a drug called a "beta blocker" or "beta receptor antagonist". Specifically, it blocks or antagonizes beta-1 receptors, while doing nothing to beta-2 receptors, which is important when being taken in combination with certain other drugs (such as some drugs for treatment of asthma). It is used to treat hypertension, angina, some arrhythmias, congestive heart failure, and various other cardiovascular conditions. Metoprolol tartrate is one of two ways the drug is prepared (the other being metoprolol succinate). Metoprolol tartrate is immediate release, while metoprolol succinate is extended-release.

Metoprolol strengthens the heartbeat and lowers the blood pressure a bit as a result. You are on a very low dose. Take the medication. With the mirtral valve prolapse problem you really need the metoprolol. Answered by Fausto Tiangco 5 months ago.
