I take Fleicanide 50 mg x twice daily and Bisoprolol 1.25 mg once daily. I only get mild dizziness if I get up too quickly.
After taking these meds for about one year, I went to my GP to question that although I feel well my resting heart rate is now between 36 - 39. I was happy when she advised me to stop taking it, and she wrote to my EP to get an appt for me.
I saw the consultant EP this morning and I explained that since i stopped taking it nearly 4 weeks ago my resting heart rate is between 42 - 46, but he said, no I should still be taking the Bisoprolol! I've had no episodes of AF for over a year. It's great not to have the dizziness that accompanies the Bisoprolol.
My ECG showed no evidence of any problem. There has not been any atrial flutter as I have an Apple Watch that prints out the data for me, and I check my heart rate manually. I can always tell if my heart rate is being erratic, and I have no problems whatsoever.
I would have thought that resting heart rate is low enough without these meds, but he feels that the Fleicanide should always accompany the Bisoprolol. Has anyone else received advice similar to situation please?
