Some years ago I had what the Hospital said was an AF attack .. I was told I was just anxious & was producing too much adrenaline - which was also increasing my Blood Pressure .. I was given Bisoprolol 2.5mg twice a day, 12hrs apart - & also Losartan for the BP (now stopped & replaced with Doxazosin) ..
I have various side effects but by far the worst is the extreme fatigue .. Lie down on the settee & I'm asleep - Sit in a chair & I'll fall asleep .. Lie in bed & well, sleep does come, but only until I need to spend a penny ..
Over the past few weeks the fatigue has got worse & worse & now, I have absolutely no energy to do anything, not even watch my favourite TV programmes, without nodding off & missing most them (thank goodness for Sky+ when I can be bothered) ..
After reading several postings on here, I have decided to come off the Biosoprolol .. How's this for a plan ? ? ? .
Weeks One & Two - Cut one of the 2.5mg pills in half & take one half (1.25mg) every 12 hours - thus taking a total of 2.5mg a day (half what I was taking) ..
Weeks Three & Four - Miss taking the "Evening" pill, thus reducing the dose in half again - to just 1.25mg a day ..
Is this about right, or should I stay on each reduction longer ? .. I am scared the AFs will return .. Even though the bisoprolol do give you some horrid side-effects they are good at quelling anxiety ..
I really would welcome your comments .. I am so sick of feeling as I do it's making me so depressed & unable to enjoy my life ..
Thanks for listening .,..
