How do you take this medication?
Take your hypertension pill by mouth as directed by your healthcare provider, usually once a day.
High blood pressure is a long-term (chronic) condition that can harm your organs. Medications for blood pressure are not a one-time cure. This medicine doesn't provide a complete cure for high blood pressure, so it's important to continue taking it, even if you start feeling better. If you stop taking it suddenly, this could cause dangerous problems, like heart attack or stroke. Follow your medical provider's instructions carefully.
What happens if I miss a dose?
If you miss a dose of your blood pressure medicine, take it as soon as you remember. Just don’t take extra to catch up - if it’s almost time for your next dose, just skip it.
What happens if I take too much?
Taking too much of your blood pressure medicine can lead to symptoms like a very slow heart rate, fainting, hypoglycemia (low blood sugar), and dizziness.
If you’ve taken too much Bisoprolol-Fumarate, call your medical provider or local poison control center (800-222-1222) immediately.
