I take this for blood pressure and have had no problems but understand that the tartrate is cheaper.
Unless your doctor prescribed a different dose level you will be stuck with what you got, as far as the tartrate or succinate they are both of the same drug it is just in how they preform, so if you are at 25 mg succinate the same dosage level would be prescribed as 25 mg tartrate. You should talk to your doctor that wrote the prescription or to the pharmacists where you get the prescription filled they might be able to find a different manufacturing company that is cheaper than the one your getting.
I have taken both. The succinate cost more than the tartrate. So I went back on tartrate . Couldnt tell any difference in the two. The succinate is slow released. The tartrate, I cut the pill in two and take 1/2 in the morning and the other half in late afternoon. Hope this helps.
