Customer Question
I take Metroprolol Tartrate...

I take Metroprolol Tartrate 100 mgs. twice daily. If I miss a dose, would I Get a heartburn feeling?. Or if I did take it on time would I get the same feeling?

Doctor's Assistant: What medications do you take daily? Are you allergic to any medications?

None that I know of

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

No, I just take some OTC things. I have been on the metoprolol for a few weeks now. My cardiologist and my PCP are at odds as to how much I should be taking

Metoprolol can cause heartburn for some people. I suggest taking it with food to avoid that problem. If it continues, then take Zantac 30 min before or ask doc to switch to something else.

I can go as far as to say it could have resulted in saving my sons life and our entire family now knows what bipolar is and how to assist and understand my most wonderful son, brother and friend to all who loves him dearly. Thank you very much

I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
