My charming spouse is taking Metoprolol ER Succinate 25mg's as well as Atorvastatin 40mg tabs. She has had her Flu Shot (for us oldies). But, she is getting a cold, headache, coughing. No fever, just tired. Can you advise regarding cough medicine and such?

My husband sees his heart Dr every 3 months. He went yesterday & forgot to tell her he was taking a new med, prescriped by our family Dr., Metoprolol Succ ER 25 mg, 1 daily. The heart Dr told my husband she wanted him to take a new med. We just picked it up from the pharmacy, it is Metoprolol Tartrate 25 mg, 1 daily. Are these 2 drugs badically the same? Should he take both of them or just the one the heart Dr prescriped? Thank you.

My question is I have been on Metoprolol Tartrate 25 mg and when visiting the doctor she changed me to the Metoprolol ER Succinate 25mgs once a day and I have been taking that and now she has increased it to 50 mgs twice a day but I am afraid to take it because my pressure has been low and within range. Which dosage should I be taking and should I take the Tartrate or the Succinate?

I am taking metoprolol succ, 25 mg. It has caused me to gain 4 to 5 lbs. I am looking for another drug, similar, but does not cause weight gain. I take this med in the evening, for my High blood pressure. In the morning, I take valsartan and HZ2. I am concerned about this weight gain.
