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 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.
For a short time only your mother-in-law could take 2 of your Metoprolol ER sus 50mg once a day to replace her twice daily dosage of Metoprolol tartrate 50mg - check with her doctor or pharmacist first.
