Atrial Fibrillation Research Study Seeks Afib Patients near San Francisco, Cincinnati, and New Jersey
I have had AFIB since 2004. During period i have taken Atenolol and Bicoprolol. I was taken off Atenolol because it caused me to have low blood pressure, especially early in the morning before work. I infrequently suffer low BP symptoms with Bicoprolol. However, Bicoprolol causes leg weakness, poor balance that makes me appear tipsy to onlookers.
Additionally, I take Terazosin, a Beta Blocker for voiding dysfunction and overactive bladder.Whatever ailment one has Beta Blocker is the answer.
My Cardiologist thinks the Terazosin is the cause of my disequalibrium, but I cannot urinate without it and when I asked my Urologist if there is anything better for me, he attempted to steer me into having TURP surgery
If you think you can help me please contact me. I have Blue Shield HMO and I live in San Mateo, CA. My quality of life is limited due to my physical condition
