What will happen to me? ## I took my amlodipine 5mg and bisoprolol 5mg at night 7:30 pm and mistakenly took them again at 8:30 pm. What will I do. ## That is not actually an overdose amount, but doubling up may cause you to experience more severe side effects than usual, such as dizziness, headache, increased urination, dehydration, and low blood pressure. Please keep watch on your symptoms, if you experience any, and seek medical attention if they become severe; though it is always best to check with your doctor to be sure. Ref: Amlodipine Information & Bisoprolol Information You should also be careful not to become dehydrated by making sure you take in plenty of fluids. D...

adco bisocor 5mg side effects

Does this medication reduce pulse rate? ## Yes, it can cause a lowered heart/pulse rate as a side effect. This medication contains the active ingredient Bisoprolol, which is a beta blocker that's most commonly used to treat high blood pressure and certain cardiac conditions, its other side effects may include nausea, dizziness and hypotension. The main thing you have to watch for is how much it's lowering your heart rate, if it's dipping below 60 beats per minute, then it is a concern that should be discussed with your doctor. It should naturally be lower when you are sedentary, but it should go up when being active. If you are a high performance athlete, yours may be lower when resting and that may be normal for you. Are there any other questions I can help with? ## Why wou...

Bisoprolol causing autonomic neuropathy?

As soon as I was put on Bisoprolol, I complained of breathlessness and feeling as if my lungs no longer worked automatically. I complained that I felt like a drunk zombie, that Bisoprolol had turned me into an old man overnight. Thing is, I stopped taking any beta blockers eight months ago, but all the symptoms that started from the day I took Bisoprolol remain to this day, I an so exhausted that I can only get out of bed every other day, my lung oxygen content has gone down to 85% when asleep, my heart rate is variable for no reason. But nobody in the medical profession will acknowledge that Beta Blockers have residual side effects and so say I have anxiety, which I certainly am unaware of.

My usual medication is Verahexzal SR240mg, Migroben 160mg. These have been added to reduce my blood pressure * Puresis 20mg, * Plenish K, * Esperide and this last week Biliocor 5mg.

Long term use of Concor 2.5 mg

How long should Concor R be taken? Is it advantageous to be on Concor R for a long period of time? Being a regular user of Concor R (2.5mg) at the age of 72, should I consult my physician before discontinuing treatment? Please give your considserate opinion. ## The duration of treatment under any medication should be determined by the prescribing doctor. Thus, in my opinion, there is no right or wrong length of time in which Concor-R should be taken.

However, I do think it is important to consult your prescribing doctor before discontinuing treatment (especially if you have been taking Concor-R for any exten...
