I called my pharmacist and he says it's not very important you take it with food i guess it's just if you get an upset tummy then take it with food... thanks for your responses

It doesn't say anything particular about why Metoprolol has to be taken with food: https://www.drugs.com/metoprolol.html - just that it should be taken with food or right after eating. Sounds like an absorption issue - it needs to be broken down by stomach acid to enter your digestive system or blood stream. Is it a problem to take it with food?
