Hi everyone

Curretly on 1/4 tablet over the last 14 months been on 2.5mg then 1mg, came off but heart rate wentbuo to 126bpm. Currently down to a quarter and the anxiety is real. Am hoping to come off completely in a few weeks.

Still get few episodes of 67bpm up to 126bpm and have cancelled so much due to the anxiety. Some people do not understand why i cancel coffee or visiting and even a trip round tesco is a challenge as i get missed beats and anxious.

Hope everyone is ok. These tablets are vile

    Yup, I agree. I was on them for about 3 months only. Started at 5 mg for about 2 months. Felt like death. My hands and feet were freezing. My bp and heart rate went down very low, and |I was also taking a bp med. The worst was the fatigue. I could not get off the sofa.

    So I dropped it to 2.5 mg. Did not feel much better. The only good they did was help my tachycardia.

    I was told to stop it 5 days prior to my first attempted ablation. I asked if that was okay to just stop it. I was told it is no problem . Well it was a big problem. The anxiety was through the roof. Mainly physical. My legs were so weak and jittery and jerky. I felt like a complete mess.

    I did not know that it was withdrawal from the biso and thought it was my anxiety, so \I was put on trazodone and a benzo. What a mistake that was. ||Withdrawal on these was done slowly but \i went through hell. I am now 14 months post and still going through waves and windows.

    If I knew then what \i know now.

    I did not go back on the biso. I told my cardiologist that \i would rather have tachy than feel the way \I did on biso

      I have waves of anxiety and am so weak. Doctor will not listen to me about my side effects. Says it is all anxiety from other causes. I hope you are feeling better. I hope to get to the bottom of this.Can't stand feeling like this anymore.

    I've been off them for around 6 months already and my God I'm so happy, these pills are the worst thing I've ever been through and I've been through alot( was shot twice) and that doesnt even compare to these pills. I got off them by going down one milligram each week using a milligram scale. also was on ashwaghanda ( natural herb adaptogen) basically helped with side effects alot!! the weaning has to be precise or your going to feel any withdrawl symptom.
