I'm going to ask my GP about this next week, but thought I'd ask if anybody here is on bisoprolol and hawthorne. I'm lucky in that I've been taking bisoprolol for 4 years without noticing any side effects. I'm so glad I'd not found this place before the cardiologist put me on it when I went to A&E as I would have been really worried based on the problems reported on here.
Out of all the herbal supplements I've researched, Hawthorne seems to come out with the most positive reviews for heart 'treatment'. However, I'm not clear how it reacts with bisoprolol as they both seem to (maybe) do the same thing and that might not be a good thing as my BP is normally below 120/80 and my pulse is in the low 50s. I'm all for taking Hawthorne if there are benefits, but not if it's just going to amplify what the bisoprolol is already doing.
My reason for looking at supplements is because I still get occasional ectopic beats and would like to be a bit more pro-active in lengthening the intervals between AF episodes.
