No, metoprolol is not an ACE inhibitor. Metoprolol is a beta-blocker that affects the heart and circulation (blood flow through arteries and veins).

Metoprolol is used to treat angina (chest pain) and hypertension (high blood pressure). It is also used to treat or prevent heart attack.

Yes, metoprolol is known to increase serum potassium levels.

Severe and symptomatic hyperkalemia associated with metoprolol has been reported in a 45-year-old male with diabetes, hypertension, and dialysis-dependent diabetic nephropathy. Cellular potassium channels are beta-receptor mediated.
