I saw my cardiologist two days ago. I was taking bisoprolol 2.5mg and flecainide 100mg daily. He just stopped my bisoprolol and doubled the flecainide to 200mg a day.
All well and good ? Not really. I expressed my concern about just stopping bisoprolol as my HR might go up - it has !
Before I saw him it ranged between 72 - 85 (ish) in the day. Now it`s around 97 - 100 during the day and up in the evening to 100 - 105 going as high as 119 (at rest).
It`s higher than I`m happy with.
So my question is this - what HR is to high in your opinion ? Is there a cut off point when you go to A@E ? Would you accept a regular HR of 100 - 110 or do you think it`s to high ? What is your average HR ?
Thanks for any replies
