Hi Sir, I have been prescribed Met Xl 25 by my doctor for high heart rate and. High diastolic pressure. Is is safe to use it because I found numerous studies where it says that it can make you diabetic.

Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. Any drug which is prescribed or taken has a huge list of possible side effects and some unwanted effects. But these are hardly noticed. Metoprolol is extensively used in controlling high BP and other heart related issues. People have been taking it for ages. Thanks.
