Posted on Wed, 8 Mar 2017
Question: I've held my pm doses of metoprolol tartrate 50 mg and Corlanor 7.5 mg because my hr has been in the 40s several hours and I feel quite bad. How long until they are lower in my system from last dose / can I expect hr to improve? I'm on them for inappropriate sinus tach. Occasionally gets low but not for hours.

Thanks for your query.

It will take atleast 12 hour for the heart rate to return to normal.
Ask you cardiologist to reduce the doses of ivabradine.
Metoprolol and ivabradine should be seperated from each other by 12 hours to prevent severe bradycardia episode in future.
