How did you wean off Metoprolol?

@kenny48 I took a very small dose at one time (25 mg/ 1 X a day) and substituted it for another beta blocker (same dosage) and did not have any problems. From your post, it appears like this is a new cardiologist who is making this recommendation?

Yes it is. After wearing a heart monitor for a month, he said I did not have one single pac the entire time, although I did have many pvc's. He doesn't think it's necessary for me to continue taking it. I am supposed to have an echo done the end of the month. He said he wanted me to be off it for at least two weeks prior. Evidently my last stress test showed something to do with reduced ejection fraction. Also he said my pulse rate is way too low. Thinks it's because of the metoprolol.
