Hi Everyone, sorry if you're all getting tired of me! I've had my gripes with this darn drug, came off it, had tachycardias like I've never known before, had to go back on it because Verapamil didn't suit and then - believe it or not I've been praising the Sandoz brand. Perhaps, I still should in as much as since being back on it - about 2 months now, I've only had lightheadedness once. However, what happened on Saturday night has lead me to believe that the Bisoprolol is making me collapse. I have had this before, though this time it was slightly different. I'm unable to read my ECG (taken with my Prince 180D) and didn't have time to download it before the Paramedics arrived. Fortunately for me, my lovely neighbour came to the rescue also just before I fell to the floor. Heart rhythm-wise the event must have passed, so there was apparently nothing to capture for the Paramedics. Anxious to know what it reads, I was told at Cardiac-Respiratory that it was in effect none of my business, why did I want to know, I didn't need to know. I would have liked her to say she would pass it to the Consultant. We all know what it's like trying to get an appointment. Enough said, before I drive you all mad, but I am curious to know if anyone else has in the past 'collapsed' whilst on Bisoprolol - not unconscious, but simply collapsed. My thanks to you all. Kindest Regards, Denise.
