I was originally given 2.5mg but brought me to a stop. Spoke to cardiologist and I spoke to him about reducing to 1.5 and he was happy with this. Unfortunately my blood pressure has started to rise, which I have not had problems with before even Sotolal . At mo it's 169:107. As I have changed GP recently he wants to wait until he has my full records before changing anything. So I thought in the meantime I better go back upto 2.5mg. I wondered if this had happened to anybody else on the change from Sotolal to Bisoprol ?
