A few weeks ago when admitted to hospital with my pulse at a constant 160, they treated it with Metoprolol and it soon went back into normal sinus rhythm. I thought it strange that they had prescribed this drug as a few years ago, when I was again in hospital with constant tachycardia they overdosed me with this drug and I collapsed, with the result that I was told I shouldn't ever take it again.
However since last Thursday evening it has been racing constantly again, it's not so high this time at just around 105ish (makes me feel worn out and I can't do anything that takes too much effort). This time the small dose of Metoprolol (25mg) has done nothing with regards to my pulse, but did take my BP down too low. Yesterday I went to see my GP and he has suggested I try Bisoprolol as a pill in the pocket as he said it doesn't take BP down quite as much.
Has anyone else taken Bisoprolol as a pill in the pocket and what dose did, or do you take?
It's strange, but after 9 years with tachycardic PAF this is the first time I've been prescribed Bisoprolol. I have been prescribed 2.5mg each morning until pulse reverts.
