Brief Answer: it is adverse effect, switch the medicine Detailed Answer: Hi Familyono, Welcome to Healthcare Magic. Bosvate is bisoprolol, a beta blocker group cardiac medicine. It can have many adverse effects in some users. Commonly it causes slow heart rate, low blood pressure, dizziness, decreased sleep, lack of erection. Rarely it can cause asthma like brochospasms and scaly skin lesions with pigmentation on the limbs resembling psoriasis. This is an indication to switch the medicine to other class of cardiac medicines. Your doctor will know other safer options for you. I hope the advise will be helpful for you.
