Metoprolol is a beta-blocker. It is generally used to treat high blood pressure or heart failure. It lowers the risk of heart attack, or death from heart attack.

If you're not sure why you're taking a medication, consult with your physician so you know why you're being asked to take certain medications. It's important for you to be directly involved in your healthcare.
