Interactions between your drugs
Applies to: Aleve (naproxen) and Toprol-XL (metoprolol)
If you use metoprolol for the treatment of high blood pressure, talk to your doctor before using it together with naproxen. Combining these medications may reduce the effects of metoprolol in lowering your blood pressure, especially if you use naproxen frequently or regularly (for example, to treat arthritis or chronic pain). You may need a dose adjustment or more frequent monitoring by your doctor to safely use both medications. It is important to tell your doctor about all other medications you use, including vitamins and herbs. Do not stop using any medications without first talking to your doctor.
Drug and food interactions
Applies to: Toprol-XL (metoprolol)
Food can enhance the levels of metoprolol in your body. You should take metoprolol at the same time each day, preferably with or immediately following meals. This will make it easier for your body to absorb the medication. Avoid drinking alcohol, which could increase drowsiness and dizziness while you are taking metoprolol. Metoprolol is only part of a complete program of treatment that also includes diet, exercise, and weight control. Follow your diet, medication, and exercise routines very closely.
