Bisoprolol fumarate , a type of medication known as a beta-blocker, is used to treat high blood pressure. Beta-blockers lower blood pressure by decreasing the force and rate of heart contractions, which reduces the heart’s demand for oxygen. Bisoprolol fumarate can be used alone or in combination with other high blood pressure medications.


Bisoprolol fumarate does not cure high blood pressure; it merely keeps it under control. Therefore, you must continue taking it even if you are feeling well. Do not stop taking Bisoprolol fumarate unless instructed to do so by your doctor. This is especially important if you have coronary artery disease. Abruptly stopping Bisoprolol fumarate could cause chest pain, heart rhythm problems, and even heart attack. Do not take Bisoprolol fumarate if you have inadequate blood supply to the circulatory system (cardiogenic shock), certain types of irregular heartbeat, a slow heartbeat, or severe congestive heart failure.

Only your doctor can determine whether it is safe for you to continue taking Bisoprolol fumarate .
