The action of Bisoprolol
By preventing the effects of the hormone adrenaline, Bisoprolol works. Your heart beats less quickly and forcefully when you take beta blockers, which lowers your blood pressure.
What advantages come with taking Bisoprolol?
Heart issues or high blood pressure (also known as hypertension) can be caused by a variety of things, including a family history, a salt-rich diet, being overweight, or not exercising enough.
It is frequently advised to take medication, such as Bisoprolol, to treat the diseases in order to prevent more serious illnesses such as stroke, heart attack, or blood clots. These lifestyle modifications include quitting smoking, drinking less alcohol, and exercising more.
What is Bisoprolol used for?
The drug Bisoprolol is only available via prescription. Always read the patient information sheet included in the drug packaging and abide by your doctor’s recommendations.
With or without food, consume the tablets whole along with a glass of water. To make sure you remember, take it at the same time every day.
Dose of Bisoprolol
The active component of Bisoprolol, Bisoprolol fumarate, is present in strengths of 2.5 mg, 5 mg, or 10 mg per tablet.
Your doctor would typically start you on the lowest dose feasible if you have high blood pressure. They may decide to increase the dose after observing your reaction; the daily maximum dosage is 20mg. However, if you have issues with your kidneys or liver, this daily maximum will be reduced. The dosage will change if you’re taking Bisoprolol for other cardiac issues, so you should always heed your doctor’s instructions.
Unless it’s almost time for your next dose, you should take your Bisoprolol tablet as soon as you remember it if you forget to take it. In this situation, skip the missed dose and proceed right to the next. Do not increase your dose to make up for a missing one, but also do not be alarmed.
If you take more Bisoprolol than is recommended, get immediate medical attention at the local hospital emergency room. Reduced heart rate, blood pressure, and a tightness in the chest are all signs of an overdose.

- Rifampicin is used to treat infections.
- medication for migraines or severe headaches.
You should let your doctor know if you’re taking any of the aforementioned drugs so they can determine whether Bisoprolol is the best line of action for you.
You should combine your medicine with some lifestyle modifications, such eating a healthy diet, exercising regularly, and abstaining from excessive smoking or drinking, just like everyone else who has high blood pressure or heart issues.
While taking this drug, you should generally avoid alcohol (or at the very least, limit your consumption), as it can cause your blood pressure to drop too low.
The most frequent negative effects of using bisoprolol are as follows:
- sluggish heartbeat
- chilly feet or hands
- tingling in the hands and/or feet
- reduced blood pressure
- nausea, vomiting, diarrhoea, and/or constipation
- feeling flimsy
Inform your doctor straight away if you do encounter one or more of these side effects and they continue or get worse. If you experience any severe adverse effects, such as shortness of breath, fluid retention, or an allergic response, you should also call your doctor.
