I have taken this drug in the past after surgery for PSVT for a long time and now years later am back on it for high blood pressure. I do not have any side effects and it is working as it should!

Comment:
Started taking Metoprolol 25mg at bedtime. I have been extremely fatigued and can barely stay awake at work.

I feel like my heart is barely beating at times. Scared to stop so calling DR to see if I can take half ... Show Full Comment
