Pharmacological Properties of Metoprolol

Pharmachologic effect - antianginal, hypotensive, anti-arrhythmic.

Locks mainly beta1-adrenergic receptors of the heart, has no intrinsic sympathomimetic and membrane stabilizing activity. It reduces cardiac output and garden, slows the heart rate, reduces the stimulatory effect of catecholamines on the myocardium during physical stress and mental strain, prevents reflex orthostatic tachycardia. The antihypertensive action is due to a decrease in cardiac output and synthesis of renin inhibition of the renin-angiotensin system and the central nervous system, reduction of baroreceptor sensitivity and, as a result, a decrease in peripheral sympathetic influences. The hypotensive effect develops rapidly (Sad decreases after 15 minutes, maximum - 2 hours) and lasts for 6 hours; while taking metoprolol succinate - the clinical effect of the blockade of beta1-adrenergic receptors saved 24 hours Dad slowly changing: steady decrease is observed after a few weeks of regular intake.. Antianginal effect is the consequence of reducing the frequency and strength of heart contractions, energy consumption and myocardial oxygen demand. Reduces the frequency and severity of coronary heart disease attacks, the death rate for patients diagnosed with myocardial infarction, improves tolerability loads. Metoprolol succinate reduces the risk of death (including sudden death), occurrence of reinfarction (including in patients with diabetes), and improves the quality of life of patients with acute myocardial infarction and idiopathic dilated cardiomyopathy. Antiarrhythmic effect is the elimination of arrhythmogenic sympathetic effects on the conducting system of the heart, slowing the sinus rhythm and speed of the spread of excitation through the AV node, braking automaticity and prolongation of the refractory period. It has a mild negative inotropic effect. Cardioselective saved using daily doses not exceeding 200 mg. Due to the selective beta1-adrenergic receptors theoretically reduce the risk of bronchospasm (in asthma patients with lower lung function decreases life), hypoglycemia and peripheral vasoconstriction.

In the experiments on dogs (up to 105 mg / kg / day for one year), rats (800 mg / kg / day for 2 years) and mice (750 mg / kg / day for 21 months) signs of carcinogenicity is not revealed, but revealed histological changes such as hyperplasia of the liver cells and induration of lung tissue macrophages. When administered to albino mice at doses up to 750 mg / kg / day for 21 months in females increased the incidence of benign lung adenomas, however repetition of the experiment an increase in the incidence of any tumors was observed. The test results of dominant lethal mutations in the mouse, the study of somatic cells chromosomes, test abnormalities somatic cell nuclei in interphase and al. showed no mutagenicity. In rats receiving doses in excess of 55.5 times the maximum daily human dose (450 mg) had no effect on fertility, increased performance and decreased postimplantation death survival of newborn animals (signs of teratogenicity was absent).

Metoprolol tartrate is rapidly and almost completely (95%) absorbed when taken orally, undergoes extensive first-pass metabolism. The bioavailability is about 50% at the first reception and increases to 70% when applied repeatedly. About 12% bound to plasma albumin. Rapidly distributed in tissues, penetrates the blood-brain barrier (the level of the central nervous system is 78% of the plasma concentration), placenta, breast milk (higher than plasma concentrations). The volume of distribution - 5.5 l / kg. Cmax is achieved within 1-2 hours after administration, blood levels vary significantly. T1 / 2 -. 3 to 7 hours Biotransformiroetsa in the liver to form two active metabolites. Write mainly kidneys as metabolites, Cl - 1 liter / min. If ingestion is less than 5% is excreted in the urine in unchanged form, with on / in infusion - about 10%. If the kidney function does not change the bioavailability, but may decrease the rate of excretion of metabolites. In patients with cirrhosis of the liver metabolism slows down and the total clearance (correction dosing regime is not required). Not removed by hemodialysis. The on / in infusion metoprolol tartrate for 10 minutes more and the maximum effect developed after 20 minutes, slowing the heart rate at doses of 5 and 10 mg of 10 and 15%, respectively. After oral Cmax in same doses of metoprolol succinate is 1 / 4-1 / 2 Cmax metoprolol tartrate, but is longer maintained. Bioavailability in doses of 50-400 mg (1 per day) of 23% less from that after administration of a similar dose tartrate. Pharmacokinetic parameters do not depend on the patients age.

Pregnancy and breast-feeding

Perhaps if the expected effect of therapy outweighs the potential risk to the fetus. At the time of treatment should stop breastfeeding.

Hypotension potentiate sympatholytic, nifedipine, nitroglycerin, diuretics, hydralazine and other antihypertensive drugs. Antiarrhythmic and anesthetic agents increase the risk of bradycardia, arrhythmia, hypotension. Preparations potentiate digitalis slow AV conduction. Simultaneous in / with the introduction of verapamil and diltiazem can cause cardiac arrest. Beta-adrenergic agonist, aminophylline, cocaine, estrogens, indomethacin, and other NSAIDs weaken the antihypertensive effect. Enhances and prolongs the effect of muscle relaxants antidepolyarizuyuschih. The combination of alcohol leads to mutual reinforcement depressant effect on the central nervous system. Allergens increase the risk of severe systemic allergic reactions or anaphylaxis. It changes the effectiveness of insulin and oral antidiabetic agents and increases the risk of hypoglycemia. Oral contraceptives, cimetidine, ranitidine, phenothiazines - raise the level of metoprolol in the blood, rifampicin - reduces. It decreases the clearance of lidocaine, the effectiveness of beta2-agonists (necessary to increase the dose of the latter). Incompatible with MAO inhibitors type A.


Symptoms: hypotension, congestive heart failure, bradycardia, cardiac arrest, AV block, cardiogenic shock, bronchospasm, respiratory failure and consciousness / coma, nausea, vomiting, generalized convulsions, cyanosis (manifested through 20 minutes - 2 hours after administration).

Treatment: gastric lavage, symptomatic therapy: atropine sulfate (w / fast 0.5-2 mg) - bradycardia and AV conduction violation; glucagon (1-10 mg / in, and then in / drip 2-2.5 mg / h) and dobutamine - in the case of reduction of myocardial contractility; agonists (norepinephrine, epinephrine, etc.) - in arterial hypotension; diazepam (in / slow) - for eliminating seizures; inhaled beta-agonists or / bolus of aminophylline for relief of bronchospastic reactions; pacing.

Routes of administration

Inside, intravenously.

Precautions for substance Metoprolol

In patients with chronic heart failure may impair myocardial contractility, necessitating the use of cardiac glycosides and / or diuretics with close monitoring of hemodynamic status. In the case of increasing bradycardia or AV block is necessary to reduce the dose or / atropine. Against the background of diabetes mellitus and hyperthyroidism Metoprolol may mask tachycardia caused by hypoglycemia or hyperthyroidism. In patients with diabetes require dose adjustment of antidiabetic drugs, and careful monitoring of blood glucose levels. In carrying out during the treatment surgery, the drug of choice should be an anesthetic with the least negative inotropic effect. Perhaps a more pronounced development of hypersensitivity reactions and the absence of the therapeutic effect of conventional doses of epinephrine with aggravated allergic history. Upon termination of simultaneous treatment with clonidine, metoprolol canceled gradually, a few days before clonidine, because of the risk of severe hypertensive crisis. In patients with pheochromocytoma application is possible only in conjunction with alpha adrenolytics. Metoprolol stop for 2-3 days before delivery (risk of bradycardia, hypotension and hypoglycemia in the newborn), in exceptional cases, the newborn after delivery should be within 48-72 hours to be under medical supervision. It should refrain from the use in pediatric practice, since safety and efficacy of its use in children has not been determined. If you cancel the treatment necessary to reduce the dose gradually over a period of 10-14 days. Patients with coronary artery disease have at that time be under close medical supervision. Be wary of during the drivers of vehicles and people skills relate to the high concentration of attention.

Special instructions

During treatment, you can change the test results in laboratory studies (increased urea, enzymes, phosphatases, LDH).
