Been on bisoprolol for 6 weeks now, 3.75mg does it affect breathing ?

I only seem to get the tiredness but sometimes it feels you have slight asthma .

    Hi Charles,

    I have been on Bisoprolol 2.5mg for a couple of weeks after been diagnosed with Ectopic beats. I have been getting short bursts of breathlessness a few times a day, but don't know if the Ectopic beats or the meds are causing this or not. It is very uncomfortable.

    HIi guys,

    Try challenging your gp / cardioogist to reducing your Bisoprol dosage,  my wife was on 2.5 mg for nearly 15 months with terrible side effects, tiredness, out of breath to name just a few, I got both her gp and cardiologist to agree to halving the dosage to 1.25 mg and most importantly to take it instead of with breakfast to take it at supper time so any effects would mainly be slept through leaving you much more alert in the day time.

    Try this and I am certain you will feel a lot better and enjoy life much more.

    Best wishes Ken.

    Is it during the night or 24/7? I was waking up during the night and finding it difficult to breathe. If I got up and wandered round the house for a bit it eased off.

    If it is all day you should tell your doctor or cardiologist
