21 Dec 2014 I am hoping to find a substitute that will work without all the side effects. I notice they are getting worse every year.

19 Jun 2014 Haven't taken it for very long but no major side effects. MD replaced metoprolol with this after having major intestinal distress on metoprolol. Not working very well at lowing blood pressure and heart rate yet....Metoprolol did work well but the side effects were too much
