What time of day

Posted , 8 users are following.

If you take Bisoprolol what time of day do you take it out of interest? I am on 2.5 and have always taken it first thing in the morning before breakfast but I was getting so sleepy, my heart rate was going down to 48, I couldn't function very well if at all some days, I have today taken it after lunch to see if after a morning on the go (for a change not feeling sleepy) it would make any difference.

    I will no longer take biso. I was on 5 mg for about 3 months when I was diagnosed with atrial tachycardia.

    When I was on it, and took it in the morning, I could not function. I felt like a zombie and literally could not get off the sofa. My hands and feet were freezing. My heart rate and blood pressure were so low.

    I then dropped it to 2.5 mg Still no different.

    I was told to just stop it 5 days prior to my first ablation attempt. I asked if just stopping it was okay. He told me it was just fine.

    Well, it was not fine. I went through terrible withdrawals Anxiety through the roof. I could not even walk well as my legs were jerking, jittery. and having spasms.

    It was a complete nightmare how I felt.

    I told my EP that I would rather have tachycardia than be on this drug
