    Tambocor for Heart rhythm disturbances

    After 5 days of taking Tambocor 100 the libido and any feeling on the genital had disappeared. I then canceled Tambocor again, but the lack of feeling is still there after 3 days. I also had a total loss of sexual feelings during bisoprolol. Does anyone have similar experiences?

    Tambocor for Heart rhythm disturbances

    The drug is very effective! But what I think is the dose of 250mg which I have to take. Find this a bit too much. Have a little breathing at the beginning, a slightly numb feeling in the chest, (lungs, heart) also in the stomach it feels a bit strange. After that, my eyes started to tear slightly and I looked a bit blurry, but the feeling of moaning in the lungs of my heart is diminishing. I feel very safe with this medicine, and think if you work on the dose I could very well.

    Side effects: Blurred vision

A cardiologist had not recommended FL to me 3 years ago. After increased complaints recommended me a 2nd doctor Fl. for a period of approx. half a year. Because of the various side effects I have Fl. deposed by me and can live quite well with the remaining disturbances. The visual disturbances have remained. What should I do against it ?

    Tambocor for High blood pressure; Atrial fibrillation

    Have achieved great success so far. Could now finally switch from Marcuma to HerzASS 100. End of 2004 had extreme Herzryth.- disorders. I would like to (slowly) do sports again. Think of Nordic Walking. Of course, I take note of side effects, but thank God I have not recorded any. I would soon like to reduce the meds again (I come after all to nearly 2000 tablets a year !!), But it works just fine and I find it a reduction first time quite difficult. But I think that I will succeed there soon. I would be pleased about a response. HH from L.
