Zebeta (bisoprolol fumarate)

Zebeta belongs to a class of drugs called beta-blockers, which block the action of certain natural chemicals in your body, such as epinephrine, on the heart and blood vessels. Beta-blockers can help lower blood pressure, heart rate, and strain on the heart.

Zebeta is used to treat high blood pressure. Zebeta is available only by prescription. It is available in a generic formulation known as bisoprolol fumarate.

Zebeta may be prescribed as a tablet. It’s always important to follow the specific instructions on your prescription, as they can vary based on the formulation and dosage prescribed.

If you're prescribed Zebeta, complete the entire course of the beta-blocker unless your doctor specifically tells you to stop. If you don’t complete your prescription, the beta-blocker may not fully treat your high blood pressure.
