What is Biselect 10?
Biselect containing the active ingredient bisoprolol fumarate is considered a beta blocker type of medication that can affect the heart and circulation. The medication works by slowing down the heart rate to lower the strain on the heart and can be used alone or along with other medication to treat high blood pressure (hypertension). Lowering high blood pressure can help prevent heart attacks, strokes and kidney problems.
How is Biselect 10 used?
Biselect is usually taken orally once per day or as directed by a doctor. The medication can be taken with or without food but should be taken with a full glass of water. Contact a doctor for the correct dosage as it will depend on the patientís condition and their response to the therapy. Do not discontinue the treatment without consulting a doctor, even if you feel well, as high blood pressure generally has no visible signs.
Patients using Biselect may encounter unwanted side effects such as:
- Stomach pain
- Excessive fatigue
Contact a doctor immediately should side effects persist or encounter more severe side effects such as:
- Cold fingers or toes
- Slow heartbeat
- Mental or mood changes
- Decrased sex drive or performance
- Unusual weight gain
- Difficulty breathing or swallowing
- Worsening of heart failure
Immediately proceed to your nearest emergency department if you suffer an allergic reaction. Symptoms usually associated with such a reaction include difficulty breathing or swallowing, chest tightness, swelling, skin rashes, and hives.
