Metoprolol tartrate treats high blood pressure (hypertension) and angina (chest pain). Doctors also prescribe metoprolol tartrate for people who have had heart attacks.
Metoprolol succinate treats hypertension, heart failure and angina.
Metoprolol succinate is an extended-release version of metoprolol, so it remains in the bloodstream and controls blood pressure for a full 24 hours.
Metoprolol tartrate does not stay in the bloodstream for 24 hours.
It is not recommended to change meds without speaking to the dod/pharmacist who prescribed the meds., hope the info is helpful to you? Take care, be well & safe!
