Our expert says:
You are quite right. People stopping Ziak, and for that matter all betablockers, should stop them gradually. As you yourself found, if you don’t wean them slowly you are likely to get heart palpitations as a result of what we call “rebound”, ie an excessively rapid heart rate instead of a slow one.
You don’t mention what dose of Ziak you are taking, but my advice would be to take half a tablet daily for eight days, then a quarter tablet daily for another eight days, and finally a quarter tablet every other day for a final eight days, before stopping altogether.
In the meantime continue with Exforge, which should control your blood pressure nicely.
Best wishes. JT
