I have been on 50mg twice daily and 2.5mg bisoprolol for about the past 4-6 weeks now and I'm getting to the point where I have had enough.
I'm finding the side effects too much as it's making me feel old (I'm 43 but feel like I'm 80), I feel tired a lot, get chest pains, I'm short of breath, I feel irritable and stressed a lot and I have become more paranoid about my heart. I feel less motivated and have put on a stone since starting this med.
I have had a couple of AF episodes and have doubled my Flecainide dose to 100mg and gone back into NSR within 4 hours each time. I went to see my cardiologist last week and she said using the pill in the pocket approach is fine.
I'm going to stop the Flec next week and see how I get one and then use it as PIP as and when I need it.
Has anyone else experienced similar with this medication?
