My mother is 86 and as well as suffering from AF she has been diagnosed with Heart Failure (I know this is a loose term that fits many heart issues). She has suffered from water retention in the past but 3 months ago her Bisoprolol daily dose was increased from 2.5mg to 5mg a day. She has now been admitted to hospital with severe water retention and I wondered whether this could be related to the Bisoprolol increase. My logic being that water retention is caused through poor circulation and the knowledge that Bisoprolol reduces the Heart rate.
