Metoprolol 100 mg Tablets

If you have certain heart or blood vessel conditions, a healthcare provider may prescribe metoprolol (Lopressor® and Toprol-XL®). The 100 mg metoprolol tablets are available in both immediate-release and extended-release forms. However, your metoprolol dosage will be based on several factors, such as your age, the form of metoprolol, the medical condition being treated, other medical conditions you may have, and other medications you are currently taking.
For example, the recommended starting dose for people with high blood pressure is 100 mg once a day. Based on the response and/or side effects, the dosage of metoprolol may be increased or decreased until the optimal dose is determined. Some of the possible side effects of metoprolol include tiredness, dizziness, and diarrhea.
