Will Beta Blocker work on me? I use to smoke meth

I am a 32yr old woman who had pregnacy induced HBP many years before I started using meth. Over the past 5yrs I have used meth off and on and recently I was prescribed metoprolol tart to control my high blood pressure . Still not sure if my hypertension is due to some other unknown cause and the meth just increased it or if the meth alone caused it. Eathier way, Is this the correct medication to treat meth induced HBP? Is this the correct Beta Blocker for my condition? Should I have been given a prescription before the blood tests have returned with the proper cause of my HBP? Will this perticular beta blocker increase my BP instead of regulate it due to meth use? I am on the road to quit but just the same with cigarettes it is an addiction.
