Metoprolol 200 mg Tablets

Metoprolol (Lopressor® and Toprol-XL®) comes in the form of immediate-release or extended-release tablets. However, 200 mg metoprolol tablets are only available in the extended-release form. A healthcare provider may prescribe metoprolol to treat several conditions related to the heart and blood vessels. 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, your healthcare provider may prescribe the 200 mg tablets once or twice daily to treat conditions such as high blood pressure or angina. 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.
