Metolar 50 mg containing Metoprolol (active ingredient) is given for hypertension, reducing the risk of future cardiovascular problems. This drug effectively prevents angina (chest pain) and will help you survive a heart attack. An extended-release or long-acting Metoprolol tablet contains the active ingredient Metoprolol. This beta blocker works by reducing the pressure on the heart and reducing the heart's workload. When a beta-blocker is given within an hour of a heart attack's start, it may lower the chances of early death after a heart attack.
Inform your doctor if you have high blood pressure, asthma, metabolic acidosis, severe blood circulation problems, and an overactive thyroid. Also, mention him if you are pregnant or breastfeeding. Metoprolol is not recommended for use in children. Avoid alcohol consumption while taking this medicine as it might increase the blood pressure-lowering effect of the drug. Keep your doctor informed about all your medications to rule out any interactions, especially if you take phenobarbital for epilepsy or drugs to treat cardiovascular disease (quinidine, verapamil, nifedipine, diltiazem, amlodipine, and propafenone.
Metolar can impair your thinking or reaction time. So, be careful while driving or doing any motor activity. Keep a check on your pulse rate to make sure your heart rate is not too slow. Before any surgery, tell your doctor that you are taking this drug. Avoid the intake of alcohol, as it can enhance the Metoprolol Tartrate side effects. Avoid taking grapefruit juice as it may impair the effectiveness of beta-blocker drugs. There is limited data on the use of Metolar 25 mg in children and adolescents; therefore, Metoprolol is not recommended.
