I am 82 and in excellent health. I take bisoprolol

I am 82 and in excellent health. I take bisoprolol (2.5 mg) and a statin(40mg) daily. Until early this year I had intercourse with my wife but now the libido is dormant, In researching I sent both the above medication can impact and lower the male libido. My doctors never mentioned this side effect. What do you suggest beside having face to face talk with my doctors.

My PCP is treating me for hypertension and I am taking Hydralazine 50mg TID and Bisoprolol 5mg QD. MY BP is labile. I had severe reaction to Clonidine. I am experiencing extreme tiredness and shortness of breath since the Bisoprolol was added. My doctor does not believe it is drug related. Previously I walked 2 miles daily at an indoor track. I can barely walk less than 1/2 mile now. I am scheduled for a nuclear stress test next week. I m not sure I can walk on the treadmill. I have no other medical conditions and have been in excellent health until the advent of hypertension 1 year ago. I am 71 yo.

My Husband had a mild heart attack last September. They had put him on 5mg of Bisopolol fumarate 1/2 tablet a day. He is also taking 25 mg of Losarton for High Blood Pressure. Now they upped his Bisoprolol to a full tablet. His Blood Pressure is 98/52 heart rate 98. Should he be taking both medications?

I ve just been prescribed Bisoprolol as I am suffering from heart palpitations. The doctor advised that I should take them at bedtime, I am extremely healthy and have never taken medication. I m concerned that as your heart slows down when you are asleep, won t the Bisoprolol exacerbate the problem as it slows it down even more, I m worried that I could have a heart attack in my sleep.
