After having a blood clot in the leg and chest in March, my cardiologist put me on metoprolol in June. I went back to work July 1st and even though I'm doing the same amount of walking everyday at work, I'm still worn out from walking with leg pain until I get seated and rested and then when I start walking again it happens all over. The only thing that comes to mind is the metoprolol to help my heart not work as hard, but I'm supposed to get exercise and it's really difficult to do under these conditions.

I'm not sure the specifics of your case or the exact indication for the metoprolol. Metoprolol can be associated with feeling tired, but this generally improves within a few week. However, based on your post it sounds like your symptoms may be more related to the blood clots and not the metoprolol.
