Following heart surgery [aortic valve replacement + pacemaker fitted] back in 2011 I've been symptomatic one way or another. i've had 5 cardioversions in 5 years and have been in AF for over a year now. i'm on warfarin, irbesartan [for blood pressure] and for the last 3 months bisoprolol [only 1.25mg daily]. My GP put me on bisoprolol because although i'm on warfarin & have a pacemaker he was concerned that my heart rate was too fast albeit rarely going over 90 bpm. My symptoms of dizziness, fuzziness, brain 'fog' unsteadiness, tiredness & general feeling of being unwell are just debilitating & I'm due to go on holiday shortly & I really don't want to feel like this & am tempted to stop taking them ...... any advice would be welcome. Could my worsening symptoms be caused by such a low dose of bisoprolol & has anybody out there tried an alternative for slowing the heart rate ?
Many thanks everybody ......
