... get the same results... please advise
Micardis (telmisartan) is in a group of drugs called angiotensin II receptor antagonists. It works by decreasing certain chemicals in the body that cause blood vessels to constrict and sodium and fluid to be stored by the kidneys.
Metoprolol is in a group of drugs called beta-blockers. Beta-blockers affect the heart and circulation (blood flow through arteries and veins).
Although they are both used effectively to treat hypertension (high blood pressure) they work differently.
You can try metoprolol, it may or may not give you the same results. However, if Micardis is working for you, without any side effects I would suggest that you keep taking Micardis.
