I am taking 1,125mg of bisoprolol for about 5 years. My cardiologist agreed that I could try dropping the drug. He says it's a very low dose, almost homeopathic and could leave without problems.
I disagree and 2-3 times that I stopped taking it, I had serious and severe anxiety problems, palpitations and a terrible general malaise.
About 2 months ago, I started to cut a small sliver of the tablet and during the month of September I was relatively well. This month I increased the portion of the "splinter" and after 4-5 days, sit so badly, extreme anxiety, discomfort irrations, it seemed that I felt waves of energy in my body and a phenomenal restlessness.
I returned to take 1.125mg to stabilize again and I will re-cut very very slowly, splinters to the tablet, trying to stabilize longer, 1-2 months and then re-cut a portion a little larger.
I have, a problem, the tablet I take is heart-shaped at dosage 2, 25mg - minimum dose sold in Portugal - It has a slot in the middle, which allows dividing the tablet into 2 and obtaining the 1,125mg in the form of heart half . Taking small portions with this form is difficult to ensure that I maintain a constant dosage, as in conventional tablets.
Has anyone had this problem?
I really want to try to quit this drug. And I know it will be very difficult, from the experiences I've had. But I want to try again, and I have realized that gradually decreasing the dose and slowly in time is the best method for me.
I'm scared, but I have to.
