Zebeta Dosage

The recommended starting dose of Zebeta for the treatment of high blood pressure is 5 mg once a day. If needed, your healthcare provider may increase this amount, up to a maximum of 20 mg. People with certain medical conditions (such as kidney disease, liver disease, or breathing problems) may need to start with 2.5 mg once daily.

Zebeta Dosage: An Introduction

The dose of Zebeta® (bisoprolol fumarate) your healthcare provider recommends will vary, depending on a number of factors, including:
 
  • The severity of your high blood pressure
  • How you respond to the medication
  • Other medications you are taking
  • Other medical conditions you have.
     
As is always the case, do not adjust your dosage unless your healthcare provider specifically instructs you to do so.
 

Recommended Dose of Zebeta

For most people, the starting Zebeta dosage for the treatment of high blood pressure is 5 mg once daily. If necessary, your healthcare provider may increase this up to a maximum of 20 mg once daily. For people with kidney disease, liver disease, or breathing problems such as asthma or chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), a lower amount -- 2.5 mg once daily -- is usually recommended.
 
As with all beta blockers, you should not abruptly stop taking Zebeta, as serious problems (including heart attacks) may result. Your healthcare provider will advise you about how to safely stop taking this medication. People are generally advised to slowly reduce the dose over time, with careful monitoring. It is best to minimize physical activity during this time. Let your healthcare provider know if you develop chest pain or any other problems while stopping Zebeta.
