What is bisoprolol?
Bisoprolol - the generic name for Zebeta - is a prescription medication used to treat high blood pressure. It belongs to a class of drugs known as beta-blockers, which suppress certain natural chemicals in the body that can cause the heart to beat faster. Beta-blockers slow down the heart and open up blood vessels, allowing blood to flow more freely through the body.
Bisoprolol is used to treat and control blood pressure, but will not totally cure heart problems. It may be prescribed along with other medication or lifestyle changes - including diet and exercise - to help reduce the risk of heart attack and stroke.
