My father is 51 has had a pacemaker for about a year. Since the surgery he has been taking Nebilet, which is a drug, containing Nebivolol (beta receptor blocker). He has been having a normal blood pressure and hasn’t had any complications or problems after the surgery until now. Lately he has been occasionally feeling dizzy, which is a symptom that my father feels similar to the one he had before implanting the PM. After a consultation with his cardiologist, he said that these problems are not caused by the PM since it has been working properly and advised him consulting with a neurologist. He went to a neurologist, who said that the PM might be the reason him feeling dizzy and prescribed him drugs on herbal basis and advised him not taking any further action. But my father is not feeling or getting any better.
My question is: what may cause his? Can it cause any further complications or is it something normal after the PM implantation.
