Welcome to HCM,
After going through your history you are Hypertensive and was taking Cardace Meto 5, which is combination of Ramipril 5 mg and Metoprolol 50 mg.
Your doctor knows what is best for you, there must be some reason for prescribing the drugs separately,as you can see now you are taking Ramipril 5 mg and Metoprolol 25 mg .
Hence there is no dose increase in fact there is reduction of your dose of Metoprolol.
Please continue both the drugs as advised by your doctor and get medical check up regularly.
May be once you BP is maintained combination pill of lower strength may be given to you.
Please do not worry.
Take care
Good Luck.

Hi friend,
Welcome to Health Care Magic

There is no 'extra'!
First, you were given the two drugs as a single tablet form
Now they are given separately...

Take care
Wishing speedy recovery
God bless
Good luck
