I am experiencing difficulty controlling my COPD and am taking a Steroid based inhaler. I have recently had a DDDR implant for SSS, Sinus Pauses, Brady/Tachycardia and Chronotropic Incompetence. I had a 1.25mg Bisoprolol daily... could not tolerate any higher dosage : Since the DDDR implant , I can at last , receive a new dosage of 5mg Bisoprolol... Plus PIP -of up to another 5mg Bisoprolol. I understand that Bisoprolol is contra-indicated for COPD Patients? I am SOB now and keeping to the 5mg Bisoprolol -as prescribed. I am very reluctant to take the PIP extra dosage... I think this may compromise my breathing further? I have seen so many Consultants with differing ideas? I would welcome your comments regarding COPD and Medication to ease A/F ,PSVT and all the other abnormalities I still experience?
May I wish you all a better New Year for 2016
