I've just been prescribed 1.25mg bisoprolol. Im a bit scared to take it as worried that when I'm about to fall asleep I'll get a falling feeling.
I was prescribed 2.5mg in the summer and was taking it in the mornings, but got this awful dropping feeling at night just as I was about to go to sleep.
As I've been presented a lower dose, do you think it would be better for me to take at night to lessen this side effect??
My Dr has changed me from Beta-prograne to bisoprolol as the beta-prograne seems to run out about 8 hrs before its due and I've been getting what my Dr calls positional palpitations. This is because when I am slouched back watching TV in bed I start getting a pounding heart. Then when I lay down to sleep it pounds harder. It's not fast. About 80-84 bpm. But in the day it's about 70-74 bpm.
Im getting myself all anxious about taking it as I live on my own and last time I was on the slightly higher dose I ended up phoning 111 as the falling feeling frightened me so much.
The 111 service told me to prop myself upright a bit.
Do you have any advice for me please.
