Bisoprolol is a generic medication that belongs to a family of medicines called beta blockers, also known as beta-adrenergic blocking agents, which treat high blood pressure. Uncontrolled high blood pressure can lead to serious heart conditions.
Bisoprolol is prescribed for patients to treat mild to moderate hypertension, also known as high blood pressure. It is important to get your blood pressure checked and if the read is higher than normal, medication may be needed to help lower it.
When you take beta blockers, your heart beats more slowly and less forcefully, thereby reducing blood pressure. Additionally, beta blockers improve blood flow by dilating your blood vessels.
Your dosage will be individualized to your particular needs. Bisoprolol is taken orally and can be used with a diuretic or alone. The usual initial dose is 5mg once per day. In two weeks, the dose may be increased to 10mg perday if required. After another two weeks, the dose can be increased again to 20mg per day if the doctor feels it is necessary. Do not stop taking this medication abruptly without contacting your doctor.
Contact your doctor if you develop difficulty breathing or very slow heart rate. Common side effects may include:
These may not be all the side effects of Bisoprolol 5mg.
Bisoprolol is contraindicated in patients with heart failure, cardiogenic shock, A-V block, sinus bradycardia and right ventricular failure that is secondary to pulmonary hypertension.
Bisoprolol should not be used at the same time with other beta-blocking medication. Caution should be used for patients with severe heart failure or peripheral vascular disease. Do not stop taking bisoprolol suddenly without talking to your doctor.
Tablets should be stored at controlled room temperature 15°C to 30°C.
High blood pressure, also known as hypertension, means that the pressure or force of the blood against the walls of the arteries is higher than it should be. Hypertension is common and affects 1 in 3 Americans over the age of 20. Known as the “silent killer”, blood pressure can increase with no noticeable symptoms. It is important to get your blood pressure checked. Normal blood pressure is below 120/80 mm Hg. High blood pressure is a pressure of 140 systolic or higher and/or 90 diastolic or higher that stays high over time.
