Hiya, prescribed Bisoprolol. A beta blocker for my blood pressure, I have stage 4 kidney failure. Took medication for 13 days before developing rash on forearms and thighs. Rash on arms tiny very red raised spots with few wheels which are very itchy. GP says allergic reaction, stopped medication 3 days ago but rash has not changed. Have not changed any washing items or creams ect.
I don't want to argue with your dr, but I will anywaylol because it could be important. This med causes a rash as a side effect So if you didn't have any symptoms of an allergic reacition I'd say its a side effect and that can be important to you with the kidney problem.
To answer your question, it is in the body for a while, and with kidney failure it will take longer. The half life for you is about 12 hrs so that means its going to take 12, so its 2.5 days at least.
