Bisoprolol Tablet 2.5mg works by blocking the effect of certain chemicals in the body, allowing it to help the reduction of heart rate and regulate the heartbeat. It is therefore used as part of treatment in heart failure and oedema (fluid retention). Your doctor may start you on a lower dose of this medicine and it may increase depending on how you respond to treatment.
