Metoprolol Tartrate Injection IV and Tablets

Early treatment of MI. 3 IV bolus injections of 5 mg each at approximately 2-min intervals. If clients tolerate the full IV dose, give 50 mg q 6 hr PO beginning 15 min after the last IV dose (or as soon as client's condition allows). This dose is continued for 48 hr followed by late treatment: 100 mg b.i.d. as soon as feasible; continue for 1-3 months (although data suggest treatment should be continued for 1-3 years). In clients who do not tolerate the full IV dose, begin with 25-50 mg q 6 hr PO beginning 15 min after the last IV dose or as soon as the condition allows.
