bisoprolol Drug Information

Medication Information:

Bisoprolol slows heart activity by stopping the transmission of messages from certain nerves to the heart. It does this by blocking small areas (called beta-adrenergic receptors) where messages are received by your heart.

As a result, your heart rate slows down and becomes less intense. Blood pressure in the blood vessels decreases, making it easier to pump blood around the body. Bisoprolol is prescribed for you when your blood pressure is too high or if you have heart disease in which your heart is not working properly, and bisoprolol is helpful in these situations. Because your heart uses less energy when you take this medicine, if you have angina, bisoprolol helps reduce chest pain.
