I am now coming off Bisoprolol having been on beta blockers forb22years for high blood pressure. Over the last few months I have had little energy, felt spaced out and my concentration and memory were poor. I thought I was suddenly feeling my age. I could still walk and go up and down stairs. Could still do charity stuff etc and work but had to go to bed early or in the afternoon because I felt so done.
I bought a watch in August that measures your steps and heart rate. Just by chance I saw my pulse was 47 one day and then closely watched and saw during the night it was sometimes 40 or 41 and during the day when it was 45 or so,I was spaced out and done. I am not an athlete I am unfortunately a rather plump middle aged lady. I went to doctors they did tests which all came back clear, thank God.
I was only on 2.5mg so now on 1.25mg for a month before coming off. So far so good I am very grateful to all the posters who have explained what the withdrawal effects can be. This drug is very dangerous if I hadn't bought that watch who knows what might have happened next. My friend thought I would need a pacemaker.
