    I have seen a lopressor drip used once or twice but I'm not sure how orthodox it really is. When I have given it in the past though, it's never been weight based. I can't attest that this is 100% correct but its what the pharmacist told me when he mixed my first bag. So, I just gave it as mg/hr. I believe I started my drip around 7 mg/hr (which seemed like a pretty tall dose) to maintain a BP < 140 and I titrated down about 1 mg at a time. Hope this helps.
