ِAl Dawaa Pharmacies's Description

Product Name

  • Concor 5 mg Tablets

Scientific Name

  • BISOPROLOL 

Category Of Concor 5 mg Tablets

  • Antihypertensive drugs

Mechanism Of Action Of Bisoprolol

  • Blocks beta-adrenergic stimulation; cardioselective for beta-1 at low doses with little or no effect on beta-2 receptors at doses ≤ 20 mg.
  • Beta-blocker protects the heart from too much activity. This medicine works by affecting the body’s response to some nerve impulses, especially in the heart.
  • As a result, Bisoprolol fumarate slows down the heart rate and makes the heart more efficient at pumping blood around the body.
  • Heart failure occurs when the heart muscle is weak and unable to pump enough blood to supply the body’s needs.

Therapeutic Indications Of Concor 5 mg Tablets

  • Hypertension: High blood pressure is a common condition in which the long-term force of the blood against your artery walls is high enough that it may eventually cause health problems, such as heart disease.
  • Heart Failure: occurs when the heart muscle is weak and unable to pump enough blood to supply the body’s needs.

Method Of Administration Of Concor 5 mg Tablets
