Hi all, had what currently seems to be a successful ablation as earlier side effects that we all speak about have subsided, namely ectopics, visual disturbances etc. I noticed a marked difference after 6 months, and started to give up the medication gradually, and took the last Bisoprolol 1.25 on the 12th July. In the last couple of weeks my resting rate is quite high reaching mid to late 70's occasionally. Prior to ablation my pulse was always around a steady 60. It was even 84 one day last week. My question is has anyone else experienced a rise in pulse rate after coming off Bisoprolol. My blood pressure is normal all the time. Does the body take time to adjust to functioning without beta blockers. It's surprising really as 1.25 is the minimum dose!
