Bisoprolol 5 mg Tablets

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved bisoprolol fumarate (Zebeta®) is for the treatment of high blood pressure (hypertension). It belongs to a group of drugs called beta-adrenergic blocking agents, commonly known as beta blockers. By blocking a specific type of beta receptor called beta-1 receptors, this medication causes the reverse effect of stress hormones, decreasing heart rate and systolic and diastolic blood pressure.
 
Bisoprolol is usually taken by mouth once a day. You can take the drug either with food or on an empty stomach. It comes in tablet form and is available in two different strengths, including:
 
  • Bisoprolol 5 mg tablets
  • Bisoprolol 10 mg tablets.
     
The dose that your healthcare provider recommends will depend on factors such as the severity of your high blood pressure, how you respond to bisoprolol, and other medical conditions you may have.
