Bisoprolol side effects

I have been taking bisoprolol since 2015 under a couple of brand names and I experienced various side effects with them all until I discovered Cardicor. The 2.5mg tab has absolutely no adverse effects on me at all.

Yes, I've found different brands of pills affect me differently. They often have different fillers to each other, or colouring added.

Now I always insist on having the same brand every time.

Same here. I have tried two different brands of propafenone. The side-effects differed immensely. I swapped back and forth at one point to test my theory and the difference was immediate and pronounced.

I didn't know there were different brands. Since I've been on Propafenone my blood pressure is high. Dr increased beta blocker since is making me feel depressed and lethargic. Will ask about another brand.

I seem to have a different brand each time and have the same side effects with all, but I will ask for cardicor, the side effects I find worse than Af thanks x

Do try them. I found that all the other brands made me unable to take nice deep breaths.
