My wife in January 2012 suffered a massive heart attack and was in hospital for 44 days 17 in ITU, thank god she has made a full recovery as is back to her normal self.
My wife has been taking Bisoprol 2.5mg all this time and has most of the side effects that is mentioned in this forum.
I have read the side effects mentioned in the leaflet that comes with Bisoprol i.e. Tiredness, Giddiness, Headaches and weigh gain, my wife has all these and has gained 1stone 5lbs and gone from a size 6/8 to a size 10.
One week ago I went to see our GP and explained my concerns about her drugs and he suggested that we stop taking Bisprol for one week.
The change is quite remarkable as my wife is completely alert, Not tired, No headaches, No Giddiness.
Prior to stop taking Bisoprol she would wake up 9/10 am and go to sleep 9/10 pm, this last week she has been awake and totally alert at 7.30am and last night she watched the late night movie which finished at midnight.
So we all know the downsides of Bisoprol. The upsides are that it lowers the risk of a heart attack and lowers the pulse rate.
I have been taking my wife's blood pressure daily to see if it was different from prior to to taking Bisoprol and it has gone up slightly, but her pulse rate has gone up from around 60 to 90.
I am awaiting a reply from my wife's cardiologist to see what he thinks and what we should do, i.e. continue as we are or reinstate Bisoprol.
