Therap.Cat : Metoprolol succinate is a selective adrenergic beta-1 blocking agent that is commonly used to treat Angina pectoris; Hypertension; and Cardiac arrhythmias.
Metoprolol Succinate is the succinate salt form of metoprolol, a cardioselective competitive beta-1 adrenergic receptor antagonist with antihypertensive properties and devoid of intrinsic sympathomimetic activity. Metoprolol succinate antagonizes beta 1-adrenergic receptors in the myocardium, thereby reducing the rate and force of myocardial contraction, and consequently a diminished cardiac output.
This agent may also reduce the secretion of renin with subsequent reduction in levels of angiotensin II thus decreasing sympathetic activation, including vasoconstriction, aldosterone secretion.
