Hi there! Did you end up stopping it? Just wanted to see if you have any update. My mom is in the same situation and she wants to stop it. She’s experiencing horrible side effects. Thanks!
Per package insert, metoprolol succinate extended-release tablets can be divided in half. However, the half tablet should be swallowed whole and not chewed or crushed. Therefore, the half tablet cannot be broken down into smaller portions.
