Hi. I have been hypothyroid for a couple of years now and take Levothyroxine 75mcg, 5mg Ramipril for high blood pressure and 3.75mg Bisoprolol Fumarate for an irregular heart beat. After a period of being palpitation-free, I've recently started having them again on a daily basis. I spoke to my GP a couple of days ago and she increased my dose of Bisoprolol Fumarate to 5mg. She also booked me in for a thyroid blood test and ECG, both of which I had yesterday. I haven't started taking the higher dose of Bisoprolol yet because I am a bit concerned. My BP is fine but my pulse rate has dropped to 46 or 47 and I'm worried that if I take the increased dose, it will drop still further. Yet I need to take the medication to stop the palpitations. I am seeing the doc on Monday, but I really don't know what to do in the meantime. Any suggestions please?
