In general beta blockers eg. Metoprolol, Propranolol are equally effective. However differences between them may affect choice in treating particular diseases or individual patients.
eg. Metoprolol is probably a better choice than propranolol if the patient has a respiratory disease - because it has a lesser effect on bronchial receptors.
Your doctor will be able to select the most effective beta blocker for you based on your medical diagnosis and history.
