    My heart rate is between 55 to 60. Will the metoprol slow down my heart rate too much?It is only 25 mg. I take half one in m orning and half one at night. Also my blood pressure is aorund 115/62. Will that make it too low?

    Hi Elaine,


    Since this medication is meant to lower blood pressure and heart rate, it can cause both to go low in some people. Here is some literature regarding the side effects of the medication.


    Lopressor Oral


    I also encourage you to ask your physician or pharmacist about your questions and concerns.


    Best of luck,

    Monica M. Skidmore, MS, RD
