Biso

Posted , 7 users are following.

Currently taking half a bisoprolol 1.25 and have been doing so for a few months weaning off them.....trying to but keep getting episodes of raised bests today 134 while at work. Saw Doctor. He wants me to go back to taking full tablet for a week.....surely that'll put me back to square one again.....

Been non them since Dec 2017 was on 2.50 but then 1.25. Don't want that lethargic feeling if I go back to the full tab.

feeling awful just wish I'd never had this

Any comments thoughts appreciated x

    Hello Trace,

    If you up your dose you will never get them out of your system. My hubbies blood pressure and pulse went up when he came off them, our doctor said it can take 3 months to leave the body, which is pretty scary. If you want to come off them, you have to put up with withdrawal unfortunately.

    I hate biso. I was on it for SVT. When I went for my first ablation attempt, I was to stop it 5 days prior to the procedure. My doctor said to just stop it and that was okay. Well it was not okay. I went into full withdrawal. I thought the anxiety from the withdrawals was plain anxiety, so I was put on klonopin and trazodone. Worst decison of my life. I have done a 10 month weaning from them and am now 11 months post withdrawal, and still having withdrawal symptoms.

    I just did not know at the time when I abruptly stopped the biso, that it was withdrawal. I will never believe what a doctor tells me again.

    I would rather have SVT than take biso

      So sorry to read this. You really are suffering. Trouble is the Doctors just don't listen. My heart was 128 last week and 134 today, he said use biso as pill in the pocket and just come off them. I've tried that so weaning off on my own steam. Hope you feel ok soon x

    How are you tapering? By eye? My best suggestion would be wean off with a milligram scale. Weigh your current dosage and just go down one milligram(weighed) every week, (ever Monday let's say.) I used a razor blade to cut off enough off the pill.

    Do that until you can get off of them. This is how achieved completely getting off bisoprolol after 14 years!! All I can say is what a difference.

    If you have any questions let me know I can help as much as I can.!!

    I had the lethargic feeling as well. Have been taking Ginseng and now feel great. Ginseng acts as natural pep pill. It speeds up the metabolism and off sets the reduced heart rate caused by Cardicor. Try it.
