Metolar XR 50mg (30 Capsules)
Metolar XR is a brand name for a medication that contains the active ingredient metoprolol succinate. It belongs to a class of drugs known as beta-blockers.
Metoprolol is commonly prescribed to treat conditions like high blood pressure (hypertension), angina (chest pain), and heart failure. It works by blocking the effects of certain stress hormones like adrenaline on the heart, which can help slow down the heart rate and reduce blood pressure.
The "XR" in the name indicates that it is an extended-release formulation, meaning the medication is released slowly over time, allowing for once-daily dosing.
If you have been prescribed Metolar XR, it's important to take it exactly as directed by your healthcare provider.
