    How low is your heart rate, and how low is your bp on these two drugs, Lesley?  When I was on both bisporolol and irbesartan my heart rate would not rise above 48 bpm and my bp was around 100/65.  Both too low for me to function!  

    Please ask your GP for advice but it may be that you no longer need the high blood pressure medication now that you are on a beta blocker which also reduces your blood pressure.

    I found bisoprolol deadly - just couldn't cope with the breathlessness, chest pains and sheer exhaustion. Am now on propanolol and that is much easier to cope with (for me at least!).

    I am concerned that you have to wait weeks for a review of the situation, Lesley.  Can you see your GP asap and tell him about your low bp?  He will probably advise you to stop taking the candersartan bit he does need to know.
