I don't have any other blood pressure meds and I don't have anything to check my pressure. I don't have any symptoms.
Expert:  Dr. Saha replied 11 months ago.

Thank you for all the information,

Modafinil does not have any interaction with Metoprolol.

50 mg is not very high dose.

As it is ER, it will work slowly.

Body can adjust it.

Pulse may become slow.

If you feel any symptom, you need to go to ER.

It is safer to go to work by public transport instead of self driving.

I hope this information helps.

If there’s anything else I can do, please let me know.

Please rate my answer excellent if you are satisfied with it.
