      I was only on it for a month but could not cope with them. I was on them for blood pressure. Even half a tablet gave me the same side effects as taking the full tablet 1.25. Whenever I complained my doctor said I was in such a small dose that it could not give me the side effects. In the end I had to take a stand. And she weaned me off. Now I feel so much better ad I keep praying that I stay off it for good

    Tessietom, so you were on Bisoprolol for several years with no problems and now all of a sudden you are getting the same side effects as those of us who only just started taking them and feel so ill right away?

    I wonder if they changed the formula or made a batch wrong?

      Hi again. I am on Cardicor 1.25 mgms a day. Merck  is the manufacturer. I just can't take any other brand but this is causing lots of problems for over a year now . Been on it since 2008,so u could be right  about hanging the formula, we will never find out of course!!!

      ?Same happened with phenytoin about 4 years ago when Flynn Pharma took over when the patent ran out with Pfizer . Lots of people started having seizures and auras yet had been sz free for years. I had to come off phenytoin as causes breathlessness, kidney damage, suicidal ideation etc, etc. 

      ?These drugs contain binders and fillers such as maize starch/corn, amaranth, soy, aspartame, gluten . talc, all sports of rubbish as bulking agents, Need allergy tests doing by an Immunologist etc. Available on the NHs.x

      Drugs contain binders and fillers such as maize starch/corn, amaranth, gluten, soy, aspartame. Need immunology testing for any allergies food or otherwise. The colourants are toxic too. Minefield ot there , this happened with phenytoin a few years ago when Pfizer patent ran out and it went to Flynn Pharma , people with epilepsy started having fits , auras again when FP started to manufacture the drug..
