Depends: Depends: on what you are treating and how you feel with that heart rate. In general I accept rates that low if no dizziness or near passing out sensations are encountered.

Beta blockers: Bisoprolol is a beta blocker blood pressure medication. It shouldn't be taken with other meds in the same class, like atenolol or metoprolol. It should used with caution with calcium channel blockers like verapamil or Diltiazem as they can also slow the heart rate, but that is sometimes desired. Bisoprolol is often given in combination with hctz or hydrochlorothiazide so be careful with diuretics.

Some side effects: Headache and nausea are some of the side effects I have seen in my patient. Of course if the dose is too much for you it can cause low BP and very low heart rate.
