In addition to my other post re anti-coagulants, the other matter I discussed with my GP was the bisoporolol prescription. since my cardioversion in March I have been in NSR with no AF episodes. I wanted to see if I really needed to stay on a beta-blocker as "technically" it's not needed if my HR and sinus rhythm is back to normal. I'm also finding bisoprolol is making me wheezy when exercising, and that combined with it restricting my HR is preventing me exercising as hard or as long as I would like.
rather than switching to something like nebivolol, he suggested dropping the dose of bisoprolol to 1.25mg from 2.5mg once a day. he thinks that if I don't develop any AF type episodes on this, then he would recommend stopping the beta blocker altogether; if I do develop AF issues then he'd keep the BB but switch to one that causes less wheeziness. so for the next 6 weeks I'm on a 1.25mg regime.
any experience of this out there, or any comments?
