2.1 Recommended Dosage

Titrate doses of individual components before switching to LOPRESSOR HCT.

Administer LOPRESSOR HCT with or immediately following meals.

Hydrochlorothiazide is usually given at a dosage of 12.5 mg to 50 mg per day. The usual initial dosage of metoprolol is 100 mg daily in single or divided doses. Dosage may be increased gradually until optimum blood pressure control is achieved.

Once daily dosing may not maintain the full effect for the entire dosing period, particularly at lower doses. In such patients, consider administration in divided doses.

Dosing regimens that exceed 50 mg of hydrochlorothiazide per day are not recommended.
