Ziac Blood Pressure Medicine

The blood pressure medicine Ziac® (bisoprolol and hydrochlorothiazide) contains two different medications: bisoprolol fumarate (a beta blocker) and hydrochlorothiazide (a diuretic). By blocking a specific type of beta receptor in the body and increasing the amount of salt and water that the kidneys remove from the blood, Ziac can lower both systolic and diastolic blood pressure.
 
Ziac, which is available by prescription only, comes in tablet form and is available in three different strengths. It is typically taken by mouth once a day. You should never stop taking this medication without your healthcare provider's approval, as stopping it abruptly could lead to serious problems, including heart attacks.
 
Just like any medicine for blood pressure, Ziac can cause side effects.

Some of the most common negative effects with Ziac include but are not limited to:
