Metoprolol (Tartrate) is a cardioselective ß-blocking agent with intrinsic sympathomimetic activity. Metoprolol (Tartrate) is approximately equipotent to propranolol in inhibiting ß1 receptors such as those in heart but 50 to 100 fold less potent than propranolol in blocking ß2 receptors.
Metoprolol is used with or without other medications to treat high blood pressure (hypertension). Lowering high blood pressure helps prevent strokes, heart attacks, and kidney problems. This medication is also used to treat chest pain (angina) and to improve survival after a heart attack.
Metoprolol belongs to a class of drugs known as beta blockers. It works by blocking the action of certain natural chemicals in your body, such as epinephrine, on the heart and blood vessels. This effect lowers the heart rate, blood pressure, and strain on the heart.
