Metoprolol succinate and metoprolol tartate belong to a class of drugs known as beta-blockers. These drugs treat high blood pressure and other heart conditions by blocking the effects of adrenaline on the heart.
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.

As most heart attacks occur in the AM, I have heard that taking metoprolol in the PM is better. You would have more medicine on board.
