Treatment for hypertension and angina pectoris. It is also used as an adjunct to standard therapy in patients with stable chronic heart failure.


  • Hypertension or angina pectoris: The usual dose of bisoprolol fumarate is 5 to 10 mg orally as a single daily dose; the maximum recommended dose is 20 mg daily
  • Congestive heart failure: The initial oral dose of bisoprolol fumarate is 1.25 mg once daily.
  • If tolerated, the dose should be doubled after 1 week, and then increased gradually at 1 to 4 week intervals to the maximum dose tolerated; this should not exceed 10 mg once daily.
  • Dosage in renal and hepatic impairment: The initial dose of bisoprolol fumarate for hypertension should be 2.5 mg daily and that the dose should be increased cautiously in patients with severe hepatic impairment or renal impairment (creatinine clearance less than 40 ml/minute). A maximum dose of 10 mg daily for both angina pectoris and hypertension in patients with severe hepatic impairment or with a creatinine clearance of less than 20 ml/minute.

Beta – blockade may result in further depression of myocardial contractility and precipitate more severe failure.

At the first signs or symptoms of heart failure, discontinuation of bisoprolol should be considered.

Do not abrupt cessation of therapy with beta – blockers in patients with coronary artery disease and hyperthyroidism.

Beta – blockers can precipitate or aggravate symptoms of arterial insufficiency in patients with peripheral vascular disease.

Use with caution in patients with bronchospastic disease who do not respond to, or who cannot tolerate other antihypertensive treatment.

Beta – blockers may mask some of the manifestations of hypoglycemia, particularly tachycardia in patients subject to spontaneous hypoglycemia or diabetic patients receiving insulin or oral hypoglycemic agents.

Particular care should be taken when anesthetic, agents which depress myocardial function, are used.

Bisoprolol is not recommended for pregnancy and breastfeeding.

Patients should be aware of how they react to drug before driving or operating machinery (especially when starting treatment, dosage adjustment, alcohol drinking).
