How long for Metoprolol to work?

Hi everyone, Was wonder how long it takes for the Metoprolol to start working for migraines? Years ago I took this drug and it worked well for me. Seems it took 2-3 weeks before it stopped them completely. Thank you!

Hi and welcome to the Migraines & Headaches Community.

It varies from person to person and drug to drug but, typically it takes approx. 4 weeks before medication starts working and a good 12 weeks to reach maximum results. Good luck!
