Hello,

Myself Dr Josh. and I’m happy to help with your question today

Its better to skip this dosage of metoprolol then to take double dosage.

As you take metoprolol for high blood pressure daily & today you forget that weather you have taken it or not,I advise you to skip this dosage.

Skipping a single dosage will not raise your blood pressure whereas taking double dosage may cause side effects.

Take your next dosage after 24 hours.

So I advise you that- as you do not remember weather or not you have taken the dosage of metoprolol,ts much better to

skip this dosage of metoprolol.

Thank you.

Hope this helped.
