What is bilicor for ## Hi. John! How are you? From what I've found, Bilicor is listed as containing Bisoprolol, which is a beta blocker that's most commonly used to treat high blood pressure and certain cardiac conditions. Side effects may include nausea, dizziness, headache and stomach pain. Learn more Bilicor details here. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Hi. I am 44 years old. I take 5 mg bilicor at night for a fast heart rate. Why does that happen only when I sleep? The bilicor helps. If I don't take it I'm awake every few minutes. It is a terrible feeling.

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. Not only do we all respond to each medication differently, but we also may be prescribed the same types of meds for different reasons -some requiring longer treatment than others... 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...

I'm a 71-year-old male: Cardiloc 2.5 (bisoprolol) seems to work fine - but makes me feel very very cold. Is there an alternative? ## For Hypertension or cardiac conditions, there are actually many other medications that are available for you to try. I had a similar problem with the beta blocker class of medications that Bisoprolol is in. The one I am currently using that hasn't caused me any serious problems is Labetalol, so you may want to see if it's available there for you to try. Learn more Labetalol details here. Learn more blood pressure details here. If it's not available, just let them know the problem you are having with it and tell them you'd like to switch to a different medication. Are there any other questions or comments? ## Many thanks. ## I have recen...

My mom is 94. She was put on bisoprolol in march. Recently she has begun to experience frequent urination going most of the day. It has increased within the past week especially. Anyone else have this problem? ## That is normal, frequent urination is listed by the FDA as being a side effect of most blood pressure and cardiac medications. You may also experience dizziness, headache and hypotension. How much fluid does she take in each day? Is she on any other medications? ## I am 65 and since starting bisoprolol/hctz 10/6.25mg I have to urinate 5 or 6 times during the night. It is horrible. I asked my doctor for another medication that is not a diuretic and he said it's such a low dose that it doesn't cause frequent urination. Wrong! ## I notice similar effect on me. I got heart ...

Switching blood pressure pills

I was on bisoprolol + hydrochlorothiazide and my dr just switched me to lisinopril + hydrochlorothiazide. Do I have to be weaned off of the first blood pressure pill or can I start taking the new ones tomorrow? ## You should be able to make a smooth transition from one to the other, unless you've been instructed otherwise. The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, increased urination, and hypotension. Is there anything else I can help with?

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 woul...
