  • Bisoprolol 1.25mg

    Has anyone found their heart beats hard and forcefully since being on bisoprolol? I take 1.25mg a day. As far as I know I have nothing wrong with my heart but put on bisoprolol as my regular non specific beta blocker (Inderal LA) was discontinued. I was put on it 8 years ago for migraine only.

  • Making bisoprolol

    Is there any reason why we cannot take bisoprolol at night before bed, that may be better for the lethargic symptom instead of walking around in a dream all day,as if taken in the morning the worst of the effects are worn off about 6pm.
