Does anybody know whether there is a difference between cutting a 2.5 dosage of bisoprolol in half and taking it over 2 days, or taking a regular 1.25 dose as prescribed by the GP?
My GP has okayed my 'experiment' to cut my tablets in half to halve my daily dosage. If it works for me, then he will give me a new prescription for 1.25 daily instead of 2.5.
However, I'm wondering if it's the same thing or not or not because I've been doing it for nearly a week now and my resting pulse when I go to bed (according to my fitbit) is no different to what it was on the higher dose, ie: mid 40s at it's lowest.
I'm not worried about it because I feel fine and so my blood is pumping around my body okay, but I was expecting my resting pulse to go up a bit.
I am now wondering whether a small dose simply doesn't last as long as a higher dose, but has the same potency when you take it. I take mine early evening and so it may be at it's most effective when I go to bed.
