Overview Information on Metoprolol
Pharmacist Tip
If you forget to take your medicine, take it as soon as you remember, unless it's close to the time you take your next dose. In that case, skip the missed dose and resume your regular schedule.     
Metoprolol is a kind of medicine called a beta-blocker. Your doctor might prescribe metoprolol along with other medicines to treat hypertension, which is also called high blood pressure. Your doctor may have given you metoprolol to treat chest pain (angina), to reduce the number of chest pain attacks, and to help you be able to tolerate exercise without angina. Metoprolol is also given to patients to treat heart failure.

The exact way in which medicines such as metoprolol work to lower blood pressure and to help to improve heart failure is not completely understood. However, it is known that metoprolol reduces the workload on your heart and helps it to beat more regularly. Metoprolol can improve your condition, but it will not cure the underlying disease.
