Finally being taken off this bp drug due to a pulse of 45 and blood pressure of 110/52. Ive been told to just come off it immediately BUT im wary of doing this as i was told to do this with atenolol and almost ended up in hospital. Has anyone come off this drug and if so did they come off it slowly? Thanks very much. For anyone about to go on this drug be very aware of your pulse/heart rate.
