I have recently come off bisoprolol completely after being 1.25mg daily. I was prescribed the medication after suffering with chest pains and palptations along with a high heart rate, i went to the hospital and had an ECG which came back all clear and then had an chest x-ray which again came back all clear, a long with blood tests that were all clear. My GP then placed me in diazepam as they thought it was down to anxiety, however that did not work i was still suffering from a high heart rate so they then placed me on bisprolol to 'treat the symptoms'. I have now been off the tablets for around 2 weeks, the first few days i felt fine i was really happy i was having no side effects, however a week being off them i began to feel really shaky and weak, i also tried doing some things i used to do so tried going back to the gym but i would come home and my rate would not settle past 120bpm as i assumed id be able to go back to doing normal things being off them. Since then i keep suffering from a high rate hitting 100s just being sat around and feeling even more shakier than i have!
i'm only 20 and i feel this is no life for someone of my age to be living, i feel like i cant do anything i feel weak all the time and im too anxious to do much on the fear ill end up worse off.
i was wondering if anyone else has had a similar experience to mine or could possible give any advice! Would love to go back to feeling how i used to before all this!
note: i have a check up tomorrow with my gp and will see what they suggest too.
