Could do with some advice please.
On Tuesday I had my treadmill test where I was told I should have had a letter telling me to stop taking my Bisoprolol (5mg) the day before. (Basically, I didn't).
9 minutes in and feeling really good my heart plateaued at 125bpm. To cut a long story short the end result has been that I've felt really ill with a HR of between 50 and 58 resulting in 2 days off work. Just to get to the bathroom felt like an exhibition to Everest. (OK, slight exaggeration but you know what I mean).
Saw my GP on Friday and we reduced my Bisoprolol to 3.75mg's. My other meds are Amlodipine 5mg, Ramipril, 5mg & Rivaroxiban, 20mg.
I decided not to take the Bisoprolol on Friday night to help me recover from my bradycardic episode, which is probably what I'd describe it as despite being fairly mild....... by comparison to others experience anyway. I then did the same last night as HR was still slightly slow, so I've now gone 2 days without any Bisoprolol.
Why was I STILL bradycardic this morning? HR again between 50 & 56.
Evidence suggests Bisoprolol will (try to) protect me from another AFib attack but surely my HR will drop further if I take it?
All this since my treadmill test on Tuesday.
Any thoughts most welcome.
PS To all you mothers out there, happy mothers day
