In medicine, bisoprolol is a "cardioselective beta-1-adrenergic blocker. It is effective in the management of hypertension and angina pectoris."[1]

Variation in the effects of bisoprolol may be due to adrenergic receptor genotypes.[2]


Bisoprolol fumarate was approved in 1992.[3] Generic bisoprolol was approved in 2002.[4]


It is not metabolized by cytochrome P-450 2D6 allele.


For healthy adults, the starting dose is 5 mg orally per day (sometimes 2.5 mg) and the maximum dose is 10 to 20 mg orally per day.
