Hello I'm new !,
I'm wondering whether to ask the GP to change my beta blocker.
I've been taking 2.5 mg Bisoprolol with Rivaroxaban and two different blood pressure medications following going to A & E and being diagnosed with AF. I'm also waiting for an appt with the cardiologist and also some tests on my heart, which will be 2 - 3 months wait. I'm not sure how long to persevere with the horrid side effects before asking to try an alternative beta blocker.
Did anyone experience the side effects of Bisoprolol getting better and if so how long into taking the medication?
I've got a constant pounding headache, feeling very tired, blurred vision and feeling very spaced out and dizzy. My BP remains high too. I've not been able to go to work due to feeling so unwell and after 2 1/2 weeks of being off work and feeling awful, I'm starting to worry that my life needs to return to some normality. I really can't take much more time off work.
Any advice appreciated.
