Bisoprolol help.

Posted , 4 users are following.

Saturday reduced bisoprolol from 2.5 to 1.5 took that to yesterday when doc said no stop. I choose not to as cut it in just over half . Having to stop as I don’t need meds and side effects made me worse.

However since yesterday and now today I’ve had a headache consently it feels but only seems to be mid afternoon on wards. Bp was checked last night and absolutely fine. All though pulse was up slightly. Went back down though slight palpitations.

Is headaches with slight off vision normal from withdrawal? Wearing sunglasses to watch HD Atv

Is slight brain fog (which I had on tablets) Also normal and slight problematic breathing

Did anyone have the jitters, feeling like I could clean the world with slight panic when they start, I presume it’s the Adrenaline Coming back to normal levels.

Had this weird thing too this morning upon waking up I was dream slightly and my brain seem to rewind my thoughts in fast motion is this something anyone else had

UPDATE last night (15/11/18 ) after feeling great all day almost like my normal self but fast speaking in morning

at night my hubby read bp and it read 193/130 pulse apartly 94 i felt fine no racing heartbeat etc yes i did have a migraine, but to be honest we think we set my panic off and read it wrong so no longer reading bp at home

Anyway had unsettled night woke consently and sore like flu but took my half 1.25 (doc said stop right away but im weaning) at 8.00 am took half of 1.25 went to gp (10.40) about headaches and got bp read 132/92 (would this be the pill reducing it,DOC says no)

again i feel just shake and a bit excitable, sun annoys me.

IS this all normal with withdrawl ?

Doc said that half a 1.25 wont be doing anything for me so to just stop but im to scared to

Do i continue with withdrawl programe next stop monday ill cut a bit of the half.

How does a pill do this too us, in just over 10 weeks

(was up at one point to 10mg)

    Hi Michelle,

    Our doctor said when you stop this drug it can take 3 months to get it completely out of the system. As you are still taking it it is not leaving your system yet therefore, when you do decide to stop do not be surprised if your BP is all over the place or you feel dizzy etc., Doctors are quick to prescribe these drugs, but do not know or understand just how dangerous they are.

    I cannot advise you staff to do,but imnon half a 1.25 bisoprolol and the side effects are still there.

    Anxiety in the morning, ( I take it at 8.30pm) and usually normal heart rate maybe slightly raised then BOOM, sudden fast bests to 130bpm

    Been on them since Dec last year. Weaning off slowly as I've Tried to stop before but heart rate goes up to 140.

    Hope you can manage things

    yes im still taking it took it right down now cutting the 1.25

    i thought it was best to taper slowly but now im starting to wonder

    as around three pm each day since even this doze i cant breath my nose is blocked badly and i get werid thoughts like songs playing over and over in my head or pictures of horrible objects appearing in my head (hope i explained them correctly )

    im still struggling with dizzyness and that feeling of being out of it i feel no different on half of 1.25 than i did on 5mg

    my doctor says the half 1.25 is just a Placebo effect and withdrawl from such a low dose now will be easy
