What is the purpose of this ingredient?

  • Lower blood pressure for high blood pressure
  • Lower heart rate
  • Treat heart failure
  • Treat circulatory disorders of coronary arteries in coronary heart disease
  • treat stable angina pectoris
  • Relieve Cardiovascular Discomfort
  • treat anemia sparingly

Below you will learn more about the fields of application and the mode of action of bisoprolol.
Please also read the information on the drug groups beta-blockers, antihypertensives, to which the active ingredient bisoprolol belongs.

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 Depression; High blood pressure

    I could go to bed in the morning, although I’m just getting up. I have to lie down at noon and sleep about 2 hours so that I can do something in the afternoon. At night I can not sleep again, and so it goes in and out of the day. In addition, I still have terrible sweats that make my life hell.

    Side effects: Sweats; Fatigue

    Bisoprolol for High blood pressure

    because of mild high pressure I am on the advice of my doctor for about 2 years with daily 10mg bisoprolol on the road – despite sufficient (and the same years for the same) movement and conscious diet I have gained almost 10 kg weight. I feel tired and listless. Can this be due to bisoprolol? Recently, I hardly ate anything because of stomach / intestinal problems, but I gained about 1.5 kg …

    Side effects: Increase in weight
