Product Description
Common use

Generic Zebeta contains active ingredient Bisoprolol Fumarate and belongs to a class of drugs called beta-adrenergic receptor blocking agents. Mechanism of its action is to prevent the chemicals transmitting nervous signal between nerves such as norepinephrine and adrenaline to bind receptors on nerves. This way heart rate and blood pressure are reduced as force of heart contractions and tone of blood vessels diminish.
