It doesn't say anything particular about why Metoprolol has to be taken with food: http://www.drugs.com/metoprolol.html - just that it should be taken with food or right after eating. Sounds like an absorption issue - it needs to be broken down by stomach acid to enter your digestive system or blood stream. Is it a problem to take it with food?
