      Hi Charles thanks for your in put. I'm on 1.25 and I am having both the same both problems> my Dr told me to take when I need it and to it when the side effects get bad the restart in again when i'm feeling better ans at the moment it seems to be workin. I was on a drug called Nebivolol 2.25mg that nearly killed me the side effects with that are wicked. Ta Tom

    Presumably you don't suffer from asthma?

    1.25mg per 24hours is the minimum dosage I think

    If you are uncomfortable ask your GP for an alternative (having explained your symptoms)

      Hi bill, sorry for the late reply. I have not been to good, I don't suffer from asthma its Arrhythmia and heart failure had quite a few heart attacks and 2 bypass opps 1 in 1984 and 1 in  2004. It does help the arrhymia but i'm not sure about the failure as some times the heart feels very weak.

      I see the dr on thursday i will have a good chat with him. 

      thanks for he message Tom

    Hi thomas, I am on 2.75mg bisoprolol and I think they make me feel worse. I have been getting short bursts of feeling breathless like a surge of adrenaline with heart flutters. It does,nt last long but very uncomfortable. I have been diagnosed with ectopic beats. I had a 48 hr monitor fitted yesterday and go back to the hospital tomorrow morning to have it removed. I hope the breathlessness show up on the monitor.

    Hi Thomas, I was on the same dose for about a month and decided to come off it as it was affecting me similarly, that did get better but I was often very very tired and culd not get on with my normal activity. Spoke to consultant and he suggested just use it as a 'pill in the pocket' approach when my rate goes high and rapid. Since being off it I have been much better - it takes about an hour to kick in.

    Hi thomas,

    Try taking the Bisoprol last thing at night so that you sleep off most of the effects of the drug during the night.

    It worked for my wife and many people I have told on this forum.

    Regards ken.

    Hi Thomas,

    Im from Malaysia, sorry if my grammar doesn't good. Im on bisoprolol 7.5mg a day from 2.5mg, i had a open heart procedure due to valve damage. Bisoprolol is too mild for me, according to Dr. It lower my blood pressure from 120 to below 100, and my heart rate from 120 to 96, but dr still unsatisfied for the result and change to Carvedilol, i will start it tomorrow, hope this will work great for me. By the way, take good care of you.
