Hi, just joined this site - looks like some people on here may have a better chance of answering my question than my GP.
I'm a 42 year old man who has been on bisoprolol for 6 years. I was put on it originally for palpitations - think they were caused by stress and or as a side effect of being on omeprazole. I gave up omeprazole 6 months ago following advice form my consultant after an endoscopy showed I had no reason to be taking it. Anyway getting back to the bisoprolol, I take 2.5mg daily and since taking it I've always had a bit of muscle tightness and some headaches but nothing too bad as it comes and goes. Recently though the muscle pain (tightness) and carping is getting much worse.
I've been waiting more than 3 months for an appointment to see a rheumatologist - what I want to know is there anyone else on here who has had a similar experience with bisoprolol and if it is the cause then what's a plan to wean myself off it - my life is 100 times less stressful now and also without the omeprazole it may be time to try without bisoprilol - that is as long as I'm not dependant on it by now!
All help and advice much appreciated.
