I had Colon cancer in 2008. Worked through it, Chemotherapy, Radio Therapy, Surgery etc, and at some point during all the treatment I was put on Bisoprolol 2.5mg. I have taken these i think for the last 9 years. The only other mdication i am on at the moment is Ventolin for my Asthma. Recently i discovered that these two should not be taken together. Between 2012 and now 2017 i have on several occasions had blood teats and usually they are fine but i do have a vey low Platelet count.
I have read on several forums that Bisoprolol can in some cases cause this. I wondered what your opinions were?
As an experiment three days before my last blood test i cut the dose down to 1.25mg, and the platelet count doubled, it was still rubbish but better. I am now going to try to come off the Bisoprolol all together whilst self monitoring my BP, and see what the next Blood test shows.
Look forward to hearing your comments.
