If you have a family history of heart disease/high blood pressure, have ever had a heart attack or know someone who has, you know what a major impact is placed on the quality of life for the person with the health issues and ever one in their family. This is when metoprolol should be used. It's a beta blocker that relieves some of the work of the heart.
As with any medication, the use of metoprolol should be taken while under a doctor's care and according to the dosage prescribed. Use of a beta blocker such as metoprolol helps lower high blood pressure, relieve chest pain and help prevent heart attacks in people who have had a previous heart attack. Sometimes migraines and tremors also benefit from it's use. When used as an eye drop, it can help treat glaucoma too.
