Since diagnosed with AF 8 months ago, I have been on 2.5mg of Bisoprolol and Apixaban daily . My heart rate has been in the 40-65 BPM since then. Four days ago I had my second episode triggered I suspect by a pain killer that I have been taking for years. Since coming out from this my normal blood pressure crashed for 2 days to 84 over 55. It has since come back to normal levels. But my resting Heart rate has remained in the 80-90 range. I am more breathless and quite tired. Isn't the Bisoprolol supposed to keep it well below this range.
Keeping in mind that resting heart rates for adults are 60-100 BPM without drugs.
Because of Covid getting a hold of these doctors is not easy unless you go to the Hospital Emerg, and you want to avoid that if possible.
Thank you in advance for your kind assistance.
