My dr. initially prescribed this for me (1/2 pill daily of 50 mg pill) after i ran into financial problems and couldn't afford the copay for Toprol XL.

I'm hoping it wears off.

I quit taking as i received no lowering of HB. and was having many side efects. which i wa snot wrned of by the doctor nor my pharmacist. They don;t even give out the drug company sheets on the side efects like they did in the old days. they simply have you sign saying you did get them. I am now on a natural remedy that is working and no side effects.
