Hello, Silver star! How are you and your husband?

He should consult his doctor regarding his low heart rate, it may be indicative of a problem and is usually included in the warnings that come with this medication.

As to whether or not others are comfortable with it, it varies from person to person and usually depends on whether or not they experience a lot of side effects.

The FDA lists the typical ones as possibly including nausea, blurred vision, sweating and weakness.

What side effects is your husband experiencing?

Good day,

I experienced anxiety and my heart rate was very high. I one day got a pain in my chest, jaw and left arm and I battled to breath for a period of time. The doctor diagnosed it as Angina and prescribed bolocor and prexum 5mg. I experienced ED problems and told the doctor about it. My heart rate came down to 64 though and my blood pressure was under control. 9 months later my blood pressure increased and doctor upped the bilocor to 10mg. Now I can hardly get an erection. What replacement medicine is there for bilocor 10mg? Because it seems like it is the bilocor that causes the problem.
