Lopressor SR Overview
Metoprolol is used with or without other medications to treat high blood pressure (hypertension). Lowering high blood pressure helps prevent strokes, heart attacks, and kidney problems. Lopressor SR is also used to treat chest pain (angina) and to improve survival after a heart attack. Metoprolol belongs to a class of drugs known as beta blockers. It works by blocking the action of certain natural chemicals in your body, such as epinephrine, on the heart and blood vessels. This effect lowers the heart rate, blood pressure, and strain on the heart.
Lopressor SR Warnings
Do not stop taking Lopressor SR without consulting your doctor. Some conditions may become worse when you suddenly stop Lopressor SR. Some people who have suddenly stopped taking similar drugs have had chest pain, heart attack, and irregular heartbeat. If your doctor decides you should no longer use Lopressor SR, he or she may direct you to gradually decrease your dose over 1 to 2 weeks. When gradually stopping Lopressor SR, it is recommended that you temporarily limit physical activity to decrease strain on the heart. Get medical help right away if you develop chest pain/tightness/pressure, chest pain spreading to the jaw/neck/arm, unusual sweating, trouble breathing, or fast/irregular heartbeat.
How to Use Lopressor SR
Take Lopressor SR by mouth, with or right after a meal, as directed by your doctor, usually 1-3 times a day. The Dosage of Lopressor SR is based on your medical condition and response to treatment. To reduce your risk of side effects, your doctor may direct you to start Lopressor SR at a low dose and gradually increase your dose. Follow your doctor's instructions carefully. Use Lopressor SR regularly to get the most benefit from it. To help you remember, take it at the same time(s) each day. Do not suddenly stop taking Lopressor SR without consulting your doctor. Your condition may become worse when the drug is suddenly stopped. For the treatment of high blood pressure, it may take several weeks before you get the full benefit of Lopressor SR. Keep taking Lopressor SR even if you feel well. Most people with high blood pressure do not feel sick. To prevent chest pain, a second heart attack, or migraine headaches, it is very important to take Lopressor SR regularly as prescribed. Lopressor SR should not be used to treat chest pain or migraines when they occur. Use other medications to relieve sudden attacks as directed by your doctor (for example, nitroglycerin tablets placed under the tongue for chest pain, triptan drugs such as sumatriptan for migraines). Consult your doctor or pharmacist for details. Tell your doctor if your condition does not improve or if it worsens (for example, if your routine blood pressure readings remain high or increase, if your chest pain or migraines occur more often).
