Hi, I'm 16 years old and just wondering whether it is normal to be taking a beta blocker at such a young age?? I originally took atenolol, but it didn't work so I'm now on bisoprolol and have been for about 5 - 6 months. Before taking them, my resting heart rate was 90 bpm and would regularly go over 110 just by getting and moving, even if it was really gentle! At one point, it reached 151 bpm and I was doing nothing. No exercise, no moving. I had even been sitting for a long while. I presume this isn't normal, but any ideas?! It really worries me... As bisoprolol also lowers blood pressure, it has lowered mine too low, but, there's nothing the drs want to do any more. Any suggestions??
