Hi, I've been prescribed Bosvate (bisoprolol) by my cardiologist for what he said was "my heart beating faster at times when it shouldn't" after having a holter monitor on for 48 hours. I originally was referred to him for what me and my GP suspected was supraventicular tachycardia but in the three appointments I've seen my cardiologist he has not even uttered these words. I'm certain he doesn't actually know what it is because we have been unable to capture it happening on an ECG or the holter.
I'm only 18 years old (female, with low blood pressure weighing 53kg and 5'8) I drink probably once or twice a week but hardly ever get drunk, and I have about 1-3 coffees a day depending if I'm working or not (I'm a waitress/barista). I've done a lot of reading into bisoprolol and I'm very scared to take it because of the side effects and because I do have low blood pressure (I've heard you should not take it if you have low blood pressure). I'm also scared because when I took the prescription the cardiologist wrote into the pharmacy, the two pharmacists could not read what he wrote at all, and I told them that he just told me he was going to give me a beta blocker. I don't think they gave me the right thing honestly.
I'm putting off taking it for now, until I feel more comfortable, or if I can get into touch with my cardiologist and see if he really did want to put me on bisoprolol. I'm also concerned because I'm only 18 and I don't want to be taking these for the rest of my life, plus I'm currently working as a waitress and I'm always on my feet, and working late and waking up early and I'm dreading the tiredness effects. I've heard its a horrible nasty drug.
