Re: Metoprol side effects
The thing about Toprol (metoprolol) that amazes me the most is the label. It is actually on the label that "Total Mortality" for the trials of folks living in the US (I'm not really sure why this is) actually favors the placebo. Of course, I'm sure the FDA made them disclose this information. Yeah, the drug looks great when you look at the overall popuplation. But, when you look at the sub-groups, it doesn't look so hot.
From this data, the drug is most benificial to white males not living in the US. It would be the worst for black females living in the US. In fact, if you had two out of three (black, female, US), I'd really question using this drug.
