Giddiness, headache, fatigue, bradycardia. Nausea, vomiting, diarrhoea or constipation, stomach discomfort, mild ocular stinging, photophobia, keratitis, decreased sexual ability. GI disturbances, dyspnoea, cold extremities, insomnia, hallucination, drowsiness and mood alterations. Potentially Fatal: AV block, bradycardia. Rare but may occur in patients with preexisting cardiac disease. Includes severe bronchospasm, hypoglycaemia, hypotension, orthostatic hypotension, bradyarrhythmias. ‘Rebound phenomenon’ leading to unstable angina or MI on sudden withdrawal.
Pregnancy category ::
Drug Mode of Action ::
Bisoprolol fumarate/hydrochlorothiazide is a fixed-combination tablet that combines a Beta adrenergic receptor blocker, bisoprolol fumarate, and a thiazide diuretic, hydrochlorothiazide. Bisoprolol fumarate, a cardioselective inhibitor of beta(1)-adrenoceptor, has no significant intrinsic sympathomimetic activity or membrane stabilizing activity in its therapeutic dosage; exhibits beta(2)-adrenoceptors inhibition and negative chronotropic effect. Hydrochlorothiazide is a thiazide diuretic that inhibits Na reabsorption in distal renal tubules resulting in increased excretion of Na+ and water, also K+ and H+ ions.
Drug Interactions ::
Bisoprolol : May potentiate AV conduction time and may increase negative inotropic effect w/ class I antiarrhythmic drugs (e.g. quinidine, disopyramide, propafenone). Concomitant catecholamine-depleting drugs (e.g. reserpine, guanethidine) may produce excessive sympathetic activity. May exacerbate rebound HTN upon discontinuance of clonidine treatment. Increased risk of bradycardia w/ digitalis glycosides. Reduced hypotensive effect w/ NSAIDs. Hydrochlorothiazide: Increases toxicity of lithium. May potentiate orthostatic hypotension w/ barbiturates and narcotics. Enhanced neuromuscular blocking action of competitive neuromuscular blockers (e.g. atracurium). Increased hypokalaemic effect w/ corticosteroids, corticotropin, ?2 agonists (e.g. salbutamol). Additive effect w/ other antihypertensives. Potentiation of orthostatic hypotension w/ barbiturates or opioids. Reduced antihypertensive effect by drugs that cause fluid retention (e.g. corticosteroids, NSAIDs, carbenoxolone). Enhanced nephrotoxicity of NSAIDs. Reduced therapeutic effect of antidiabetics.
