After my diagnosis of Angina about 3 weeks ago I am now on on Aspirin, Statins and the dreaded Bisoprolol. I consider myself to be a fit 59 year old who cycles, swims, hill walks and undertakes regular Cardio activities at the gym. Still awaiting Angio and Echocardiogram, feel well apart from the occasional bout of anxiety.
My resting heart rate was always between 50 - 60 sat relaxed on an evening and now its dropped to about 40-45 and lower in sleep. I have only taken 3 Bisoprolol 1.25mg over 3 days and this was the result. I have had one good training session in that 3 day period (2nd day) and I struggled to get my heart rate up to 70%.
I have spoken to my GP after concerns that the original prescription 2.5mg may be a problem. I am so glad she agreed to reduce it to 1.25mg. To add my BP is around 113/68.
I did brisk 3 mile dog walk on the flat and my heart rate was 75 - 83 bpm
Sorry to go on a bit but I am totally confused with all whats going on and just wondered if anyone else has had similar experience.
4th tablet today???
