Hello I'm Dr Chip

What's your metoprolol dosage and what are the millgrams of the propranolol pills?

Customer: replied 3 months ago.
meto is 50 mg im not sure about propan. its at home and im at work
Expert:  Dr Chip (M.D.) replied 3 months ago.


The rough equivalent would be 10 mg of propranolol

If by chance your propranolol is 20 mg that still should cover you for now

Please let me know if you need any more information
