I’m on blood pressure medication and I am experiencing side effects, what should I do?

Q: I am a 42 year old female with high blood pressure. I’m currently taking Bisoprolol 5 mg. My concern is that I often feel palpitations, chest pressure, and a “burning” feeling on both sides of my neck and pressure at the back of my head. What do you think?

A: You need to see your doctor immediately. Chest pressure and palpitations are serious symptoms that should not be ignored. Heart disease is often missed in women because symptoms can be different than those associated with heart disease in men.
