What is Zebeta?
Zebeta is the brand name for Bisoprolol, which is in a class of drugs called beta-adrenergic receptor blocking agents (beta-blockers) that also includes atenolol (Tenormin), propranolol (Inderal), and timolol (Blocadren).
Like other beta-blockers, Zebeta is used to treat high blood pressure. High blood pressure can cause heart attacks, strokes, and kidney problems. Since Zebeta can lower blood pressure, it reduces those risks.
How Does Zebeta Work?
Zebeta and other beta-blockers work by preventing certain natural chemicals (like norepinephrine) from affecting your heart and blood vessels. This reduces your blood pressure, heart rate, and strain on your heart.
Zebeta Dosage and Treatment
Your doctor must determine your Zebeta dosage. While most people start at a dose of 5 mg, taken once a day, some may start at a dose as low as 2.5 mg. Depending on the person’s needs, doses may eventually be as high as 20 mg per day.
Benefits of Zebeta
The benefits of Zebeta include lowered blood pressure, which reduces the likelihood of having a stroke, heart attack, or kidney problems.
Side Effects of Zebeta
As with any medication, Zebeta does have the potential to cause side effects. Your doctor must decide if the risk of potential side effects is worth the benefit you'd get from Zebeta. Potential side effects of Zebeta include:
- Insomnia (trouble sleeping)
- Low blood pressure
- Mood or mental changes
- Joint pain
- Cold symptoms like runny or stuffy nose, sore throat, cough
- Slow heart rate
- Tingling, numbness, or cold feeling in your feet or hands
- Shortness of breath, rapid weight gain, or swelling
- Fluttering in your chest or rapid heartbeat
- Wheezing, trouble breathing, chest spasms
- Vision problems or eye pain
Considerations and Precautions of Zebeta
Zebeta is generally considered safe, but it isn’t an appropriate medication for everybody. You should always tell your doctor about your current and past medical history as well as the medications you currently take, including vitamins, supplements, and over the counter medications.
Other medications can cause serious interactions when taken with Zebeta. In some cases, the two medications should not be taken together at all. In other instances, dosages of one or both medications can be modified so that both drugs can be taken together. Always tell your doctor about all medications you are taking, especially any of the following:
- Calcium channel blockers (CCBs), especially diltiazem (Cardizem, Tiazac) and verapamil (Calan, Isoptin)
- Digoxin (Lanoxin)
- Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) like naproxen (Aleve) and ibuprofen (Motrin, Advil)
- Insulin or oral diabetes medicine)

People with certain medical conditions should not take Zebeta, or they may need different dosages or additional monitoring. Tell your doctor about your past and current medical history, including:
- Severe heart failure
- “AV block”
- Slow heartbeats that have caused you to faint
- Coronary artery disease (hardened arteries)
- Heart problems like congestive heart failure
- Breathing disorders like asthma or chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD)
- Circulation problems (like Raynaud's syndrome)
