Lopressor (metoprolol tartrate) is a beta-blocker which works by dilating blood vessels and slowing heart rate. This action reduces the heart's workload while lowering blood pressure.

Most patients buy Lopressor to manage hypertension (high blood pressure), angina (chest pain), or rapid or irregular heartbeat. The medication is widely-used around the world and has proven safe and effective for these conditions; in fact it is on the World Health Organization's List of Essential Medicines.

It is possible to buy Lopressor as the generic metoprolol as well as the brand name; patients may also be interested in Toprol XL, the extended-release version of this product.

Treatment Overview

Lopressor is usually started at low doses and gradually increased if lower doses fail to produce the desired result. It takes about a week for full effects of the medication, or dosage modifications, to be felt. The first couple weeks are also when side effects are usually experienced; patients may feel tired, lightheaded, and generally feel run-down initially. These effects usually fade away as the body adjusts to the medication and lower blood pressure. Serious side effects like fainting, difficulty breathing, vision changes, and rapid or pounding heartbeat are not normal and warrant medical attention.

For managing hypertension, angina, and rapid or irregular heartbeat, treatment is typically as follows:

  • Treatment starts with 100 mg per day for at least one week.
  • Dosage may be increased weekly if the previous dose was not sufficient, up to 450 mg per day.
  • The total dose is usually split into two doses taken twice per day, especially at higher doses.
  • Doses should be taken with or immediately following a meal.
  • Tablets may be split if they have a score line, but should not be crushed, chewed, or dissolved.
  • Treatment may continue for as long as it provides benefit.
  • If treatment ceases it should be done so gradually, reducing the daily dosage slowly over several weeks.

Treatment will likely need to be modified to some extent if other medications that influence blood pressure or heart rate are being taken along with Lopressor.

People also buy Lopressor to treat other conditions; it is sometimes helpful in reducing migraine frequency and severity, reducing anxiety, alleviating side effects caused by other medications, and other various uses. In these cases it is still a long-term treatment; as with hypertension or angina effects will not be fully felt for one or two weeks. In other words, while it might reduce symptoms over time, it is not a substitute for fast-acting "rescue" medications, such as triptans for migraines.

Before You Buy Lopressor

Lopressor is not the ideal treatment for everyone. While most people use this medication without adverse effects, some individuals are at greater risk of potentially serious complications. Before starting treatment consider that:

  • Beta-blockers may mask symptoms of hypoglycemia and hyperthyroidism.
  • Beta-blockers are not recommended in patients with chronic breathing ailments, such as asthma or COPD.
  • Beta-blockers inhibit the body's response to epinephrine. This can cause issues in those dependent on epinephrine to manage other conditions, as well as reduce effectiveness in emergency use of epi-pens for anaphylactic shock or when administered in severe asthma attacks.
  • Patients who have poor circulation are at greater risk of experiencing adverse effects.

Patients to whom the above conditions apply should discuss the risks of Lopressor use carefully with a doctor before initiating treatment. Alternative medications may be better suited.

Also note that the medication can change the way patients react to anesthesia. It is important that doctors be notified beta-blockers are being taken prior to surgery, including dental surgery.
