Hi! I am Dr Saleem. Welcome to JA.

Thank you for the question. I will be answering your query shortly.

Expert:  Dr.Saleem replied 9 days ago.

I understand your concern.

There are no interactions between Saxenda and Bisoprolol and both may be taken together safely in combination.

Hope that helps.

Thanks. For more info I have persistent atrial fibrillation. I am on bisoprolol to control it. I am also 8 stone overweight and I’m struggling to lose it. Saxenda has been recommended to me but I worry that it might affect my atrial fibrillation

Saxenda won't affect atrial fibrillation and its a safe choice for weight loss.

My pleasure :)
