I am another victim from this drug...this time Walgreens too. I was in tropol for a year, week ago I went to Walgreen for my refill and they gave me this new generic. My husband had to rush me to the Hospital with very HBP...arritmia and very strong heartbeat...now I am back in tropol but after that my bp is out of control.

Walgreens switched from Toprol XL 25 to Metroprolol succinate 25. Within 20 minutes of taking had headaches, heart palpitations and sweating. Took the remaining 29 pills back and requested Toprol XL 25. No problems since the switch. This generic needs reviewed further because there are adverse side effects that are not present with Toprol XL.
