    Been taking this drug for many years with no side effects that I know of. I do have some diarrhea but I am on several other meds for diabetes.

    Originally prescribed Bystolic (after a heart attack) for high blood pressure. Switched to Metoprolol ER Succinate 25mg per day because much cheaper for me and my insurance company. Drug works well for controlling my blood pressure but believe it is responsible for some bad side affects.
