El daГ±o a estos Гіrganos puede causar enfermedades del corazГіn, un infarto, insuficiencia cardГaca, apoplejГa, insuficiencia renal, pГ©rdida de la visiГіn y otros problemas.

What should I avoid while taking Bisomerck?
This medicine may impair your thinking or reactions. Be careful if you drive or do anything that requires you to be alert.
Avoid getting up too fast from a sitting or lying position, or you may feel dizzy. Get up slowly and steady yourself to prevent a fall.
Minimize drinking alcohol. It can increase some of the side effects of Bisomerck.
Do not skip doses or stop taking Bisomerck without first talking to your doctor. Stopping suddenly may make your condition worse or cause other serious heart problems.
If you need to have any type of surgery, tell the surgeon ahead of time that you are using this medicine.
You should not use Bisomerck if you have a serious heart condition such as "AV block," severe heart failure, or slow heartbeats that have caused you to faint.
Keep using Bisomerck as directed, even if you feel well. High blood pressure often has no symptoms. You may need to use blood pressure medication for the rest of your life.
Serious side effects
It happens rarely, but some people have serious side effects when taking Bisomerck.
Call a doctor straight away if you have:
- shortness of breath with a cough that gets worse when you exercise (like walking up stairs), swollen ankles or legs, chest pain, an irregular heartbeat - these are signs of heart problems
- shortness of breath, wheezing and tightening of the chest - these can be signs of lung problems
- yellow skin or the whites of your eyes turn yellow - these can be signs of liver problems
Bisomerck and breastfeeding
There's not a lot of information about the safety of Bisomerck if you're breastfeeding.
Small amounts of Bisomerck may get into breast milk and this can cause low blood pressure in your baby.
Talk to your doctor, as other medicines for high blood pressure might be better while you're breastfeeding.
4. How and when to take it
It's usual to take Bisomerck once a day in the morning.
Your doctor may advise you to take your first dose before bedtime as it can make you feel dizzy.
