Hi duckpopper,The first time I came off bisoprolol I felt awful but I must have come off to quick so I went back on it and reduced the meds over 3 months,I,ve now been off all meds for 8 months and i,m fine.just do it slowly and see how it goes.


I'll bet it is the total withdrawal. HOpe you get helpful information back quickly. And back to whatever gives you some peace with the meds well dosed!


I take 5mg Bisoprolol in the morning and warfarin at tea time. I have had 2 cardioversions both worked for a short time. I am going to see an EP on the 9/1/15 so fingers crossed. I've found if my heart rate stays under 100 I can cope...anything over 100bpm and I feel rubbish unfortuatley my average bpm is around 110 thats with the bisoprolol.
