Metoprolol is a drug that is in the class of beta blockers, that are intended to control high blood pressure, and (in my case) heart rate. Meloxicam is an NSAID intended to reduce pain, and should not be combined with aspirin.

METOPROLOL (me TOE proe lole) is a beta-blocker. Beta-blockers reduce the workload on the heart and help it to beat more regularly. This medicine is used to treat high blood pressure and to prevent chest pain. It is also used to after a heart attack and to prevent an additional heart attack from occurring.

Beta blockers are medicines that affect the body's response to certain nerve impulses. This, in turn, decreases the force and rate of the heart's contractions, which lowers blood pressure and reduces the heart's demand for oxygen.

Beta blockers, also known as beta-adrenergic blockers, are available only with a physician's prescription. The come in capsule, tablet, liquid, and injectable forms. Some common beta blockers are atenolol (Tenormin), metoprolol (Lopressor), nadolol (Corgard), propranolol (Inderal), and timolol (Blocadren). Timolol and certain other beta blockers are also sold in eye drop form for treating glaucoma. Eye drops that contain beta blockers include betaxolol (Betoptic), cartelol (Ocupress), and timolol (Timoptic).

RAMIPRIL is an ACE inhibitor. This medicine is used to prevent a heart attack, stroke, or other vascular event in people who are at high risk. It is also used to treat high blood pressure and heart failure after a heart attack.

What is the difference between Metoprolol Succ and Metoprolol tartrate?

Metoprolol tartrate and succinate are used for the same purpose, the tartrate being a generic version of Lopressor and succinate being a generic version of Toprol XL.The active chemical is different, however, so it effects may be somewhat different.According to, "the active substance metoprolol is employed either as metoprolol succinate or metoprolol tartrate (whereas 100 mg metoprolol tartrate corresponds to 95 mg metoprolol succinate), respectively as prolonged-release or conventional-release formulation."I tried both tartrate and succinate, and found a difference in my body reaction. The Tartrate gave me a dry mouth upon awakening in the morning and made my tongue feel a slight tingle. Because I had to take it twice a day, I occasionally forgot to take the second pill. I prefer the Metoprolol Succinate ER. No side effects and conveniently taken once a day. I did experience a difference.
