A week ago I came off my regular bisoprolol tablet [1.25mg] as I've been symptomatic ..... dizzy,brain zaps, fuzzy head, neck ache, week legs, feeling of disassociation ....as well as a kind of 'disconnect' between my fuzzy brain & my legs !!!
It's 4 years since my aortic valve replacement heart surgery & my options appear to be 1] assume this is just the way I am now & live with it OR 1] keep trying stuff in an attempt to feel like I used to [I was actually feeling OK prior to surgery, but of course did have a badly calcified aortic valve !!
Anyway 6 weeks ago I stopped my citalopram [anti-depressant] & one week ago I stopped my beta blocker [bisoprolol] & substituted this with 50mg daily of Losartan. My BP has for the last week remained pretty much as it was prior to the switch .. around 140/80. Today it hit 166/95 !!!
I'm assuming that my body may now be in the 'gap' between not benefitting from the bisoprolol & the losartan not having yet had time to become effective
Please does anybody on the forum have any experience with this issue and or comments relating to how long it takes for losartan to 'kick-in' & become effective. The last thing I want to do is over react & put myself back on bisoprolol !!!!
