I had a CABG done in April. The doctor prescribed me concor 2.5 mg. Would like to know more about this medication. How would it help ? Any side effects?I still smoke. Would it be a factor?How can I improve my general health. I feel tired and find it difficult to walk a distance.Get pain in my ball joints and difficulty in breathing.
Thank you

also known as bisoprolol, concor is a beta blocker and quite a selective strong one. I am
on the same dosage as you on a daily basis. This medicine actually stops your heart working hard so reducing the oxygen requirements for the heart. You may feel held back
taking this medicine because it won't allow your heart to work very hard. There are quite
a few side effects but I've never heard of pains in ball joints. Muscle cramps can be a side effect. You mention breathlessness but believe me, without this drug you will feel
vrery uncomfortable and be gasping for air. Taking its half life, 2.5mg lasts just over 24 hours and I forgot to take my pill one morning. In just 2 hours I was panting like a horse just finished a race and felt terrible. Within 20 minutes of taking the medication I felt comforable again. When being held back by a strong beta blocker, keeping fit is quite
difficult. I just go for walks and each time angina comes on, I stop and rest for 2 mins.
If your CABG was a total success and the cardiologist feels there are no other problems, you can ask him about coming off the drug. This will have to be done slowly and you will have to limit exertion in that time.If I was your cardiologist however, I would refuse this request until at least  a year after surgery to ensure everything settles down
properly.
