Hi, I had WPW and had a successful ablation 15 years ago.
When I had my daughter 13 years ago my bp was raised and I was prescribed 50mg of Atenolol per day which I've taken ever since.
Recently my bp has gone up and I have been put on 120mg of Adizem XL and stopped the Atenolol.
I've been on the Adizem for four days now and my heart rate used to be around 55-60 and has gone up to 71. My bp readings are 115/76 when lay down but during the day they are 144/84.
Is the increase in heart rate normal and how long will it take for the Adizem to control my bp?
I have an ECG booked for next week at the GP surgery to check all is ok.
