When and How Do I Take It?

Some general considerations for when and how to take Toprol include the following:
  • Toprol comes in a tablet form and is taken once a day.
  • The medication should be taken with or immediately after a meal.
  • Do not chew or crush the tablets. However, they may be broken in half (on the "score" line), without disrupting their extended-release characteristics.
  • Toprol should be taken at the same time each day to maintain an even level in your blood.
  • For this drug to work properly, you have to take it as prescribed. Toprol will not work if you stop taking it.
  • You should not stop taking Toprol without first discussing it with your healthcare provider. Stopping the medication abruptly increases the risk of serious side effects (see Toprol-XL Precautions and Warnings).

Dosing Information

The dose of Toprol your healthcare provider recommends will vary, depending on a number of factors, including:
  • Your age
  • The medical condition being treated
  • Other medical conditions you may have
  • Other medications you may be currently taking
  • How you respond to Toprol.
As always, do not adjust your dose unless your healthcare provider specifically instructs you to do so.
