    Bisoprolol Fumarate

    After a trip to A & E and short stay on cardiac ward, tests showed I had an episode of Coronary spasm. I have been given Bisoprolol Fumarate 2.5 mg for this.   I am on my 2nd day of taking and I have felt a bit spaced out and weird.  I hope it will pass when my system gets used to it.
