I've been on bisoprolol for years (for tachycardia), and I've never fainted from it, but I do often feel dizzy when I stand up after a while sitting, lying, or squatting. To avoid fainting, I stand still for a few seconds to allow the blood pressure to normalise.

In the worst case, you could take a pressor, such as ephedrine, at the same time as the beta-blocker, to counteract the hypotensive effects.
