Bisoprolol Fumarate 10mg Tablets, 28 Tablets
Bisoprolol fumarate 10mg tablets belongs to a group of medicines called beta-blockers. Beta-blockers protect the heart against 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 need.
