my wife thinks she took six tablets of metroprolol instead of regular pills this morning. what prblems can this cause.
Hello harey buchanan,
Metoprolol is a beta blocker drug. Its intended use is for high blood pressure, conditions that increase the heart rate, and wide range of other heart conditions.
That being said, the side effects of taking too many of these pills would both hypotension (low blood pressure) and bradyarrythmia (or a slow heart rate). These can both be serious; look out for if your wife is feeling dizzy or faint, as these are signs that your wife's heart rate and pressure are too low.
Should these or other symptoms occur, you should absolutely go to your local emergency room for treatment.
To your health,
