Areas of application of the active ingredient bisoprolol

Bisoprolol is used in the treatment of hypertension, which has no organic causes (essential hypertension), and in cardiovascular disorders.

In addition, bisoprolol is used in heart diseases that are associated with inadequate oxygen supply to the heart muscle (myocardial insufficiency).

Bisoprolol is also used for circulatory disorders of the coronary arteries (coronary heart disease) and angina pectoris.

A more rare application of bisoprolol is the supportive treatment of anemia.

Patients with severe hypertension are often treated with various drugs. In addition to bisoprolol, diuretics (diuretics) or other antihypertensive agents (calcium channel blockers, ACE inhibitors) or vasodilating agents (eg dihydralazine, prazosin) are used.

In the case of cardiac insufficiency, the drug is combined with ACE inhibitors and diuretics as well as, optionally, with cardiac glycosides, which increase the performance of the heart.

Basically, bisoprolol is initially administered in low doses that are only gradually increased. In any case, the doctor will adjust the dosage individually to the patient, his pulse rate and the success of the treatment.

For the following applications Bisoprolol , in-depth information is available:

  • Hypertension
  • Angina pectoris
  • Cardiovascular Disease
  • heart failure

Mode of action of bisoprolol

During stress, the organism releases the neurotransmitters epinephrine and norepinephrine. They generally cause an increased willingness to fight and escape the body. Especially at the heart, both substances bind to so-called beta-1 receptors. These receptors are activated by the messenger substances: The heart then beats faster and stronger, the blood pressure rises.

Bisoprolol belongs to the drug group of beta-blockers. He is “cardioselective”, since he acts after ingestion in the body exclusively on the beta-1-receptors of the heart. Bisoprolol displaces adrenalin and norepinephrine at the receptors of the heart and thus suppresses their effect. This reduces the number of heartbeats and the amount of circulating blood, and at the same time significantly reduces blood pressure.

In addition, the drug slows down the transmission of electrical impulses to the cardiac conduction system. This calms the heart when the stress is too high and relieves it.

Potential Bisoprolol side effects may include:

    Bisoprolol for High blood pressure

    I take Bisopolol 2.5mg due to hypertension. At the beginning of the intake, everything was the same, but after about 2 1/2 weeks, I am in a bad mood and I could literally start to cry word for every bit and the concentration leaves something to be desired. In general I was not able to criticize before I took it, but I have to force myself to stop crying or even sobbing.

    Bisoprolol for Heart rhythm disturbances; High blood pressure

    The hypotensive effect of bisoprolol, amlodipine, captopril and ramipril is unpredictable and varies according to mood. That’s why I need to check blood pressure and heart rate regularly. There are now also very good electronic blood pressure monitors that warn at the same time of arrhythmias and atrial fibrillation. The hypotensive effect of Nitrolingual Acute Spray in a hypertensive emergency is excellent and can be achieved within a few minutes. The acid-inhibiting effect of omeprazole is excellent. This drug is also freely available in pharmacies. For benzodiazepines, such as bromazepam, extreme caution is required because of the risk of dependency. Luckily, I have never had withdrawal symptoms. Is probably genetic and extremely rare. As a rule, withdrawal of benzodiazepines is more difficult and protracted than alcohol or even heroin withdrawal. Otherwise, this drug works wonders for me. It lowers the blood pressure in addition to the antihypertensive drugs and helps me even in depression and of course in anxiety disorders to panic attacks. However, this drug works differently in every human being and triggers severe mental and physical dependency on most people. So, extreme caution when taking the substance group of benzodiazepines! I know enough people who could ever get away from benzodiazepines with great difficulty, if any. Very few people, to whom I also thank God, have the great fortune to be able to sell this medicine group safely and without horrible withdrawal symptoms. However, I do not take this medication regularly and not in large doses. The effect of this drug decreases very rapidly with prolonged use because the body is slowing down the production of GABA. Ergo with decreasing effect on no case increase the dose, but better to take a longer break! Then the preparation also works again as desired. This group of substances can also lead to atypical effects.

    Bisoprolol for Heart rhythm disturbances

    Take bisoprolol for 3 months because of my heart racing, so in itself everything works just fine … For a week dizziness, fatigue, listlessness and circulation is crazy … Could it be from the tablets? Take 1.25 in the morning and 1.25 in the evening … I’m really tired!

    I have been taking bisoprolol for about 3 weeks now. I’m tired for a long time and sleep a lot, sometimes 20 hours at a time. Besides, I’m totally forgetful. I’m at work and have a job to do something for and forget it. At the beginning of treatment, I had circulatory problems.

    Side effects: Circulatory problems; Fatigue

    Bisoprolol for Cardiovascular disease

    Nightmares, sleep disorders, severe fatigue, listlessness, sensations in the toes (numbness, burning sensation), cold hands and feet. Take the drug in conjunction with ramipril. The blood pressure / heart rate lowering effect was only minimal for me (pulse from 85 to 75, blood pressure barely lowered). Since the unwanted side effects outweighed, I have now discontinued the drug completely and feel better every day. I’ll never use beta-blockers again.

    I take 5 mg bisopolol in the morning. Over the past 5 to 6 weeks, I have had to take a heavy weight gain of more than 6 kg. My leg muscle pain, I feel like screwing around it and I rather pull myself up the stairs than I go. When lying hips hurt. Often, I wake up and my arms feel numb (asleep). I am very depressed, because of a muscle disease expects me anyway the wheelchair and now I see him roll up. The idea that all my complaints could possibly come from this drug I had only yesterday through a conversation with a friend. In any case, with the help of my family doctor, I will gradually discontinue the medication and see if I feel better again. I have no hair loss, but I had occasionally small inflamed areas, such as boils.

    Bisoprolol for High blood pressure

    I take bisoprolol for 3 years. Blood pressure and heart rate are excellent, almost too low. With 110/70 and 49 pulse I am already very lethargic in the morning. Then take a half tablet, and feel only limp and beside the track. I noticed a change in my personality. Particularly striking is the feeling of being somehow isolated, of perceiving everything hesitantly. Listlessness, the feeling of walking, panic attacks. I talked to my doctor and told her my values and concerns. She said that the half tablet (2.5 mg) that I take, would be almost homeopathic, and the immediate withdrawal does not oppose. I’m curious. What experiences did you have after stopping?

    Bisoprolol for Heart rhythm disturbances; High blood pressure

    I got the medication 4 weeks ago mainly because of tachycardia and high blood pressure in the evening. At first I felt pretty good except for dizziness and cold hands and feet. For about 2 weeks I feel worse from day to day. Totally depressed, anxiety and panic attacks, driveless, tired, I just do not feel like myself anymore. Let the tablet just creep out and hope that I feel better then. My blood pressure and heart rate, I will try to get a handle on another way.

    Bisoprolol for High blood pressure

    Very heavy fatigue, nausea, beginning numbness and depression. Drug was discontinued after consultation with the doctor and the side effects are also over. Too bad, because the effect was very good in itself and I had the experience for a long time that my heart comes to rest. So keep trying …

    Bisoprolol for High blood pressure

    I tolerated bisoprolol (up to 5 mg at 166 to 106 BLD) quite well (reduction to 135 to 85), but there were quite significant side effects: very tiredness, confusion and friends said I was thinking and very slowly in the movement. Weight gain was 5 kg a year. That’s why discontinued bisoprolol. For me, the drug is not the worst, but when you go to work, it’s not so easy to handle the fatigue and altered responsiveness. (For me it was like that).
