Metoprolol tartrate is a type of beta-blocker which is a medication used in a number of conditions. The beta blocker medicine sits on beta-adrenergic receptors, which blocks the receptor from being stimulated. This results in the rate and force of the heart beat being reduced. Blocking the receptor in this way has many effects on the blood circulation and the heart. Metoprolol tartrate is used to treat many conditions that relate to the blood circulation and heart.

Metoprolol is mainly used to treat high blood pressure and in prevention of the symptons of angina- chest pains. It is also used to help reduce the risk of death after having a heart attack and helps to reduce peoples chances in having another one. This medication helps this by reducing the demands that are put on the heart.

Metoprolol can often be used in partnership with other high blood pressure medication because sometimes the use of one medication by itself is not enough to control the blood pressure and circulation.
