    Re: Toprol-XL (metoprolol)

    It's such a shame to waste these expensive meds, but dispensing meds requires a license. A private message for personal dealings would be best. Linda

    Re: Toprol-XL (metoprolol)

    I have a six-week supply of Toprol-XL 200 mg tablets left over from when i was taking it. I suppose that technically i'm not allowed to just give them away, but i sure hate to throw out such expensive medicine, especially when there are folks without prescription coverage who are paying for it out of their pockets. The bottles are still sealed, and the tablets are scored, so anyone taking 100mg daily could cut them in half and have a 12-week supply. Any ideas folks?

    Cappy, do you have one of those pill splitters? Those pills can be too small to break easily. Good luck.

    I was just moved from 100mg BID to 75mg BID. I think its a real PITA to split the 50's in half, but insurance dictates that I can only have the 50's.

    Re: metoprolol

    Does anyone know if there are lower dosages than 100 mg available? The lowest dose I can find locally is 100 mg. I only take 25mg and as you can imagine, cutting a tiny pill into four is rather hit-or-miss to say the least.
