I take anxiety and ADD meds during the day and my doctor said to try taking the metoprolol at night because I was feeling fatigued later in the evenings?
Is it better to take Metoprolol in the morning or at night?

I just recently started taking my 50mg dose at night like my MD recommended and then monitor my BP and HR during the day to make sure its still effective in keeping them within normal ranges.

The medications I take in the morning are lexapro 20mg and Vyvanse 60mg.

So if I switch to taking the metoprolol which is the extended release version at night rather than with my anti-depressants and vyvanse in the morning, will it still be effective in controlling my BP and Tachycardia symptoms during the day as well. I guess the only way to know for sure is to take my vitals throughout the day to see. Any feedback anyone can provide on this?

Metropolol adds to the CNS effects of psych meds, so I agree that you should try taking it at night. Matter of fact, before bed may actually help you get to sleep better. Now, you may want to consider that some folks experience urinary incontinence with Metropolol and if you have a tendency to have to go at night more than during the day, this may be something to watch as you try it out. I take it also, as needed, for back pain and I notice that if I take it a couple of days in a row, I start getting that last minute urge/now it's too late kind of thing that goes away when I have a break in dosing. Good luck and I wish you all the best.

I used to take 100mg SR at night, my doctor now has prescribed me to take it once in the morning too - Metoproplol 100mg SR capsules. Perhaps fatigue is one of the side effects... I haven't felt anything like that..God bless you, please let me know if I could be of any assistance?
