3. How to use this medicine?

Always use according to the doctor’s

instructions. Check with your doctor or

pharmacist if you are not sure. Your doctor

will determine your dosage and how you should

take the medicine.

Treatment with Concor must be started at a low

The maximum recommended daily dosage is

10 mg bisoprolol.

Depending on how well you tolerate the

medicine, your doctor may also decide to

lengthen the time between dosage increases.

If your condition gets worse or you can

no longer tolerate the medicine, it may be

necessary to reduce your dosage again or to

temporarily stop treatment.

In some patients a maintenance dose lower

than 10 mg bisoprolol may be sufficient.

Your doctor will tell you what to do.

If you have to stop treatment entirely, your doctor

will usually advise you to reduce the dosage

gradually, as otherwise your condition worsen.

Hypertension treatment

The recommended dosage is 5 mg once daily.

easier or for use in enteral feeding. The tablet

may be divided and a half of a dose taken

as required.

Treatment with Concor is usually long-term.

Tests and follow-up

Treatment with Concor requires regular

monitoring of several signs (heart rate, blood

pressure, symptoms of worsening heart

function) by your doctor: This is particularly

necessary when you start treatment, during

dose increase, and when you stop treatment.

If you have accidentally taken a higher dose,

or if a child has accidentally swallowed

some medicine, go immediately to a hospital

emergency room and bring the medicine

package with you.

Symptoms of an overdose with Concor may

include slowed heart rate, severe difficulty in

breathing, feeling dizzy, or trembling (due to

If you forget to take the medicine at the

scheduled time, do not take a double dose to

make up for a forgotten dose. Take your usual

dose the next morning.

Persist with the treatment as recommended

by the doctor.

Clinical data

4.1

Therapeutic indications

Treatment of stable chronic, moderate to severe heart failure with impaired systolic

ventricular function (ejection fraction < 35 %, determined by echocardiography) in addition

to ACE inhibitors and diuretics, and optionally cardiac glycosides.

Hypertension

Coronary heart disease (angina pectoris)

4.2

Posology

Heart Failure

Standard treatment of CHF consists of an ACE inhibitor (or an angiotensin receptor blocker

in case of intolerance to ACE inhibitors), a beta-blocker, diuretics, and when appropriate

cardiac glycosides. Patients should be stable (without acute failure) when Concor treatment

is initiated.

It is recommended that the treating physician should be experienced in the management of

chronic heart failure.

2/12

Transient worsening of heart failure, hypotension, or bradycardia may occur during the

titration period and thereafter.

Titration phase

The treatment of stable chronic heart failure with Concor requires a titration phase.

The treatment with Concor is to be started with a gradual up titration according to the

following steps:

1.25 mg once daily for 1 week, if well tolerated increase to

2.5 mg once daily for a further week, if well tolerated increase to

3.75 mg once daily for a further week, if well tolerated increase to

5 mg once daily for the 4 following weeks, if well tolerated increase to

7.5 mg once daily for the 4 following weeks, if well tolerated increase to

10 mg once daily for the maintenance therapy.

The maximum recommended dose is 10 mg once daily.

Close monitoring of vital signs (heart rate, blood pressure) and symptoms of worsening heart

failure is recommended during the titration phase. Symptoms may already occur within the

first day after initiating the therapy.

Treatment modification

If the maximum recommended dose is not well tolerated, gradual dose reduction may be

considered.

In case of transient worsening of heart failure, hypotension, or bradycardia reconsideration of

the dosage of the concomitant medication is recommended. It may also be necessary to

temporarily lower the dose of Concor or to consider discontinuation.

The reintroduction and/or uptitration of Concor should always be considered when the

patient becomes stable again.

If discontinuation is considered, gradual dose decrease is recommended, since abrupt

withdrawal may lead to acute deterioration of the patient's condition.

Treatment of stable chronic heart failure with Concor is generally a long-term treatment.

Patients with hepatic or renal impairment

There is no information regarding pharmacokinetics of Concor in patients with chronic heart

failure and with impaired hepatic or renal function. Uptitration of the dose in these

populations should therefore be made with additional caution.

Hypertension and Coronary heart disease (angina pectoris).

Treatment should principally be initiated gradually with low doses, which are then increased

slowly. In all cases the dosage should be adjusted individually, in particular according to the

pulse rate and therapeutic success.

Hypertension

The recommended dosage is 5 mg bisoprolol fumarate once daily.

3/12

In milder forms of hypertension (diastolic blood pressure up to 105 mmHg) therapy with

2.5 mg once daily may be adequate.

If necessary, the dosage may be increased to 10 mg once daily. Any further increase of

dosage is justified only in exceptional cases.

The maximum recommended dosage is 20 mg once daily.

Coronary heart disease (angina pectoris)

The recommended dosage is 5 mg bisoprolol fumarate once daily.

If necessary, the dosage may be increased to 10 mg once daily. Any further increase of

dosage is justified only in exceptional cases.

The maximum recommended dosage is 20 mg once daily.

Dosage in hepatic and/or renal insufficiency

In patients with liver or kidney function disorders of mild to moderate severity no dosage

adjustment

normally

required.

patients

with

severe

kidney

function

disorders

(creatinine clearance < 20 ml/min) and in patients with severely impaired liver function a

daily dose of 10 mg bisoprolol fumarate should not be exceeded.

There is only limited experience with the use of Concor in dialysis patients. There are no

indications of the necessity to alter the dose regimen.

Older people

No dose adjustment is required.

Paediatric population

There is no paediatric experience with Concor. Therefore, its use cannot be recommended in

paediatric patients.

Method of administration

Concor tablets should be taken in the morning and can be taken with food. They should be

swallowed with liquid and should not be chewed.

4.3.

Contraindications

Concor

is contraindicated in chronic heart failure patients with:

acute heart failure or during episodes of heart-failure decompensation requiring i.v.

inotropic therapy

cardiogenic shock

second or third degree AV block

sick sinus syndrome

sinoatrial block

symptomatic bradycardia

symptomatic hypotension

severe bronchial asthma

severe forms of peripheral arterial occlusive disease or severe forms of Raynaud's

syndrome

untreated phaeochromocytoma (see section 4.4)

metabolic acidosis

4/12

hypersensitivity to Concor or to any of the excipients listed in section 6.1

4.4

Special warnings and special precautions for use

The treatment of stable chronic heart failure with Concor has to be initiated with a special

titration phase.

Especially in patients with ischaemic heart disease the cessation of therapy with Concor must

not be done abruptly unless clearly indicated, because this may lead to transitional worsening

of heart condition.

The initiation and cessation of treatment of stable chronic heart failure with Concor

necessitates regular monitoring.

There is no therapeutic experience of Concor treatment of heart failure in patients with the

following diseases and conditions:

insulin dependent diabetes mellitus (type I)

severely impaired renal function

severely impaired hepatic function

restrictive cardiomyopathy

congenital heart disease

hemodynamically significant organic valvular disease

myocardial infarction within 3 months

Concor must be used with caution in:

bronchospasm (bronchial asthma, obstructive airways diseases)

diabetes mellitus with large fluctuations in blood glucose values; Symptoms of

hypoglycaemia can be masked

strict fasting

ongoing desensitization therapy. As with other beta-blockers, Concor may increase both

the sensitivity towards allergens and the severity of anaphylactic reactions. Epinephrine

treatment does not always yield the expected therapeutic effect

first degree AV block

Prinzmetal’s angina: Cases of coronary vasospasm have been observed. Despite its

high beta1-selectivity, angina attacks cannot be completely excluded when Concor

is administered to patients with Prinzmetal's angina.

peripheral arterial occlusive disease. Aggravation of symptoms may occur especially

when starting therapy.

general anaesthesia

In patients undergoing general anaesthesia beta-blockade reduces the incidence of

arrhythmias and myocardial ischemia during induction and intubation, and the

postoperative period. It is currently recommended that maintenance beta-blockade be

continued peri-operatively. The anaesthetist must be aware of beta-blockade because of

the potential for interactions with other drugs, resulting in bradyarrhythmias, attenuation

5/12

of the reflex tachycardia and the decreased reflex ability to compensate for blood loss. If

it is thought necessary to withdraw beta-blocker therapy before surgery, this should be

done gradually and completed about 48 hours before anaesthesia.

Combination of Concor with calcium antagonists of the verapamil or diltiazem type, with

Class I antiarrhythmic drugs and with centrally acting antihypertensive drugs is generally not

recommended, for details please refer to section 4.5.

Although cardioselective (beta1) beta-blockers may have less effect on lung function than

non-selective beta-blockers, as with all beta-blockers, these should be avoided in patients

with obstructive airways diseases, unless there are compelling clinical reasons for their use.

Where such reasons exist, Concor may be used with caution. In patients with obstructive

airways diseases, the treatment with Concor should be started at the lowest possible dose and

patients should be carefully monitored for new symptoms (e.g. dyspnea, exercise intolerance,

cough). In bronchial asthma or other chronic obstructive lung diseases, which may cause

symptoms, bronchodilating therapy should be given concomitantly. Occasionally an increase

of the airway resistance may occur in patients with asthma, therefore the dose of beta2-

stimulants may have to be increased.

Patients with psoriasis or with a history of psoriasis should only be given beta-blockers (e.g.

Concor) after carefully balancing the benefits against the risks.

In patients with phaeochromocytoma Concor must not be administered until after alpha-

receptor blockade.

Under treatment with Concor the symptoms of a thyreotoxicosis may be masked.

4.5

Interaction with other medicinal products and other forms of interaction

Combinations

not recommended:

Calcium antagonists of the verapamil type and to a lesser extent of the diltiazem type:

Negative influence on contractility and atrio-ventricular conduction. Intravenous

administration of verapamil in patients on β-blocker treatment may lead to

profound hypotension and atrioventricular block.

Class I antiarrhythmic drugs (e.g. quinidine, disopyramide; lidocaine, phenytoin; flecainide,

propafenone): Effect on atrio-ventricular conduction time may be potentiated and negative

inotropic effect increased.

Centrally acting antihypertensive drugs such as clonidine and others (e.g. methyldopa,

moxonodine,

rilmenidine

Concomitant use of

centrally acting a antihypertensive drugs may

worsen heart failure by a decrease in the

central sympathetic

tonus

(reduction of heart rate and

cardiac

output

vasodilation).

Abrupt

withdrawal

particularly

prior

beta-blocker

discontinuation,

may increase the risk of "rebound hypertension".

6/12

Combinations to be used with caution:

Calcium antagonists of the dihydropyridine type such as felodipine and amlodipine:

Concomitant use may increase the risk of hypotension, and an increase in the risk of a further

deterioration of the ventricular pump function in patients with heart failure cannot be

excluded.

Class III antiarrhythmic

drugs

(e.g. amiodarone): Effect on atrio-ventricular conduction time

may be potentiated.

Topical beta-blockers (e.g. eye drops for glaucoma treatment) may add to the systemic

effects of Concor.

Parasympathomimetic drugs: Concomitant use may increase atrio-ventricular conduction

time and the risk of bradycardia.

Insulin and oral antidiabetic drugs: Increase of blood sugar lowering effect. Blockade of beta-

adrenoreceptors may mask symptoms of hypoglycaemia.

Anaesthetic

agents:

Attenuation

reflex

tachycardia

increase

risk

hypotension (for further information on general anaesthesia see also section 4.4)

Digitalis glycosides: Reduction of heart rate, increase of atrio-ventricular conduction time.

Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs): NSAIDs may reduce the hypotensive

effect of Concor.

Beta-sympathomimetics agents (e.g. isoprenaline, dobutamine): Combination with Concor

may reduce the effect of both agents.

Sympathomimetics that activate both β- and α-adrenoceptors (e.g. noradrenaline, adrenaline):

Combination with Concor may unmask the α-adrenoceptor-mediated vasoconstrictor effects

of these agents leading to blood pressure increase and exacerbated intermittent claudication.

Such interactions are considered to be more likely with nonselective β -blockers.

Concomitant use with antihypertensive agents as well as with other drugs with blood

pressure lowering potential (e.g. tricyclic antidepressants, barbiturates, phenothiazines) may

increase the risk of hypotension.

Combinations to be considered

Mefloquine: increased risk of bradycardia

Monoamine oxidase inhibitors (except MAO-B inhibitors): Enhanced hypotensive effect

of the beta-blockers but also risk for hypertensive crisis.

be monitored. In case of harmful effects on pregnancy or the fetus, alternative treatment

should be considered. The newborn infant must be closely monitored. Symptoms of

hypoglycaemia and bradycardia are generally to be expected within the first 3 days.

Breast-feeding

It is not known whether this drug is excreted in human milk. Therefore, breastfeeding is

not recommended during administration of Concor.

4.7

Effects on ability to drive and use machines

In a study with coronary heart disease patients Concor did not impair driving performance.

However, due to individual variations in reactions to the drug, the ability to drive a vehicle or

to operate machinery may be impaired. This should be considered particularly at start of

treatment and upon change of medication as well as in conjunction with alcohol.

4.9

Overdose

Symptoms

With overdose (e.g. daily dose of 15 mg instead of 7.5 mg) third degree AV-block,

bradycardia, and dizziness have been reported. In general the most common signs expected

with overdosage of a beta-blocker are bradycardia, hypotension, bronchospasm, acute cardiac

9/12

insufficiency and hypoglycaemia. To date a few cases of overdose (maximum: 2000 mg)

with Concor have been reported in patients suffering from hypertension and/or coronary

heart disease showing bradycardia and/or hypotension; all patients recovered. There is a wide

interindividual variation in sensitivity to one single high dose of Concor and patients with

heart failure are probably very sensitive. Therefore it is mandatory to initiate the treatment of

these patients with a gradual uptitration according to the scheme given in section 4.2.

Management

If overdose occurs, Concor treatment should be stopped and supportive and symptomatic

treatment should be provided. Limited data suggest that Concor is hardly dialysable. Based

on the expected pharmacologic actions and recommendations for other beta-blockers, the

following general measures should be considered when clinically warranted.

Bradycardia: Administer intravenous atropine. If the response is inadequate, isoprenaline or

another agent with positive chronotropic properties may be given cautiously. Under some

circumstances, transvenous pacemaker insertion may be necessary.

Hypotension:

Intravenous

fluids

vasopressors

should

administered.

Intravenous

glucagon may be useful.

AV block (second or third degree): Patients should be carefully monitored and treated with

isoprenaline infusion or transvenous cardiac pacemaker insertion.

Acute worsening of heart failure: Administer i.v. diuretics, inotropic agents, vasodilating

agents.

Bronchospasm:

Administer

bronchodilator

therapy

such

isoprenaline,

beta

sympathomimetic drugs and/or aminophylline.

Hypoglycaemia: Administer i.v. glucose.

Pharmacological properties

5.1

Pharmacodynamic properties

Pharmacotherapeutic group: Beta blocking agents, selective

ATC Code: C07AB07

Mechanism of action

Concor

highly

beta

-selective-adrenoceptor

blocking

agent,

lacking

intrinsic

stimulating and relevant membrane-stabilising activity. It only shows low affinity to the

beta

-receptor of the smooth muscles of bronchi and vessels as well as to the beta

receptors concerned with metabolic regulation. Therefore, Concor is generally not to be

expected to influence the airway resistance and beta

-mediated metabolic effects. Its

beta

-selectivity extends beyond the therapeutic dose range.

Clinical efficacy and safety

In total 2647 patients were included in the CIBIS II trial. 83% (n = 2202) were in NYHA

class III and 17% (n = 445) were in NYHA class IV. They had stable symptomatic systolic

heart failure (ejection fraction <35%, based on echocardiography). Total mortality was

reduced from 17.3% to 11.8% (relative reduction 34%). A decrease in sudden death (3.6%

10/12

vs 6.3%, relative reduction 44%) and a reduced number of heart failure episodes requiring

hospital admission (12% vs 17.6%, relative reduction 36%) was observed. Finally, a

significant improvement of the functional status according to NYHA classification has

been shown. During the initiation and titration of Concor hospital admission due to

bradycardia (0.53%), hypotension (0.23%), and acute decompensation (4.97%) were

observed, but they were not more frequent than in the placebo-group (0%, 0.3% and

6.74%). The numbers of fatal and disabling strokes during the total study period were 20

in the Concor group and 15 in the placebo group.

The CIBIS III trial investigated 1010 patients aged ≥65 years with mild to moderate

chronic heart failure (CHF; NYHA class II or III) and left ventricular ejection fraction

≤35%, who had not been treated previously with ACE inhibitors, beta-blockers, or

angiotensin receptor blockers. Patients were treated with a combination of Concor and

enalapril for 6 to 24 months after an initial 6 months treatment with either Concor or

enalapril.

There was a trend toward higher frequency of chronic heart failure worsening when

Concor was used as the initial 6 months treatment. Non inferiority of bisoprolol-first

versus enalapril-first treatment was not proven in the per-protocol analysis, although the

two strategies for initiation of CHF treatment showed a similar rate of the primary

combined endpoint death and hospitalization at study end (32.4% in the bisoprolol-first

group vs. 33.1 % in the enalapril-first group, per-protocol population). The study shows

that Concor can also be used in elderly chronic heart failure patients with mild to

moderate disease.

Concor is also used for the treatment of hypertension and angina.

In acute administration in patients with coronary heart disease without chronic heart

failure Concor reduces the heart rate and stroke volume and thus the cardiac output and

oxygen consumption. In chronic administration the initially elevated peripheral resistance

decreases.

5.2

Pharmacokinetic properties

Absorption

Concor is absorbed and has a biological availability of about 90% after oral administration.

Distribution

The distribution volume is 3.5 l/kg. The plasma protein binding of Concor is about 30%.

Biotransformation and Elimination

Concor is excreted from the body by two routes. 50% is metabolised by the liver to

inactive metabolites which are then excreted by the kidneys. The remaining 50% is

excreted by the kidneys in an unmetabolised form. Total clearance is approximately 15

l/h. The half-life in plasma of 10-12 hours gives a 24 hour effect after dosing once daily.

Linearity

The kinetics of Concor are linear and independent of age.

11/12

Special population

Since the elimination takes place in the kidneys and the liver to the same extent a dosage

adjustment is not required for patients with impaired liver function or renal insufficiency.

The pharmacokinetics in patients with stable chronic heart failure and with impaired liver

or renal function has not been studied. In patients with chronic heart failure (NYHA stage

III) the plasma levels of Concor are higher and the halflife is prolonged compared to

healthy volunteers. Maximum plasma concentration at steady state is 64+21 ng/ml at a

daily dose of 10 mg and the half-life is 17+5 hours.

5.3

Preclinical safety data

Preclinical data reveal no special hazard for humans based on conventional studies of safety

pharmacology, repeated dose toxicity, genotoxicity or carcinogenicity .

Like other beta-blockers, Concor caused maternal (decreased food intake and decreased body

weight) and embryo/fetal toxicity (increased incidence of resorptions, reduced birth weight

of the offspring, retarded physical development) at high doses but was not teratogenic.

4.1

Therapeutic

indications

Hypertension

Coronary

heart

disease

(angina pectoris)

Treatment of stable chronic, moderate

to severe heart failure with impaired

systolic ventricular function ( ejection

fraction < 35 %, determined by

echocardiography) in addition to ACE

inhibitors and diuretics, and optionally

cardiac glycosides.

Hypertension

Coronary

heart

disease

(angina

pectoris)

4.2

Posology

and

method

of

administration

Treatment should principally

be initiated gradually with low

doses, which are then

increased slowly. In all cases

the dosage should be adjusted

individually, in particular

according to the pulse rate and

therapeutic success.

Hypertension

The recommended dosage is 5

mg bisoprolol fumarate once

daily.

In milder forms of

hypertension (diastolic blood

pressure up to 105 mmHg)

therapy with 2.5 mg once

daily may be adequate.

If necessary, the dosage may

be increased to 10 mg once

Heart Failure

Standard treatment of CHF consists of

an ACE inhibitor (or an angiotensin

receptor blocker in case of intolerance

to ACE inhibitors), a beta-blocker,

diuretics, and when appropriate

cardiac glycosides. Patients should be

stable (without acute failure) when

bisoprolol treatment is initiated.

It is recommended that the treating

physician should be experienced in

the management of

chronic heart failure.

Transient worsening of heart failure,

hypotension, or bradycardia may

occur during the

titration period and thereafter.

daily. Any further increase of

dosage is justified only in

exceptional cases.

The maximum recommended

dosage is 20 mg once daily.

Coronary heart disease

(angina pectoris)

The recommended dosage is 5

mg bisoprolol fumarate once

daily.

If necessary, the dosage may

be increased to 10 mg once

daily. Any further increase of

dosage is justified only in

exceptional cases.

The maximum recommended

dosage is 20 mg once daily.

Dosage in hepatic and/or

renal insufficiency

In patients with liver or kidney

function disorders of mild to

moderate severity no dosage

adjustment is normally

required. In patients with

severe kidney function

disorders (creatinine clearance

< 20 ml/min) and in patients

with severely impaired liver

function a daily dose of 10 mg

bisoprolol fumarate should not

be exceeded.

There is only limited

experience with the use of

bisoprolol in dialysis patients.

There are no indications of the

necessity to alter the dose

regimen.

Elderly people

No dose adjustment is

required in elderly patients.

Children

There is no therapeutic

experience with bisoprolol in

children. Therefore, its use

cannot be recommended for

children.

The film-coated tablets are to

Titration phase

The treatment of stable chronic heart

failure with bisoprolol requires a

titration phase

The treatment with bisoprolol is to be

started with a gradual uptitration

according to the

following steps:

1.25 mg once daily for 1 week, if

well tolerated increase to

2.5 mg once daily for a further week,

if well tolerated increase to

3.75 mg once daily for a further

week, if well tolerated increase to

5 mg once daily for the 4 following

weeks, if well tolerated increase to

7.5 mg once daily for the 4

following weeks, if well tolerated

increase to

10 mg once daily for the

maintenance therapy.

The maximum recommended dose is

10 mg once daily.

Close monitoring of vital signs (heart

rate, blood pressure) and symptoms of

worsening heart

failure is recommended during the

titration phase. Symptoms may

already occur within the

first day after initiating the therapy.

Treatment

should

which are then increased slowly. In

Treatment modification

If the maximum recommended dose is

not well tolerated, gradual dose

reduction may be

considered.

In case of transient worsening of heart

failure, hypotension, or bradycardia

reconsideration of

the dosage of the concomitant

medication is recommended. It may

also be necessary to

temporarily lower the dose of

be swallowed whole with

some liquid in the morning

before, during or after

breakfast. Do not chew tablets.

The duration of treatment is

not limited. It depends upon

the nature and severity of the

disease.

Concor therapy should not be

stopped abruptly, particularly

not in patients with coronary

heart disease, as this may lead

to acute deterioration of the

patient's condition. If

discontinuation of therapy

becomes necessary, the dose

should be gradually reduced

(e.g. halving of the dose at

weekly intervals).

bisoprolol or to consider

discontinuation.

The reintroduction and/or uptitration

of bisoprolol should always be

considered when the

patient becomes stable again.

If discontinuation is considered,

gradual dose decrease is

recommended, since abrupt

withdrawal may lead to acute

deterioration of the patients condition.

Treatment of stable chronic heart

failure with bisoprolol is generally

a long-term treatment.

Patients with hepatic or renal

impairment

There is no information regarding

pharmacokinetics of bisoprolol in

patients with chronic heart failure and

with impaired hepatic or renal

function. Uptitration of the dose in

these populations should therefore be

made with additional caution.

Special

warnings and

special

precautions for

use

Concor therapy should not be

stopped abruptly, particularly

not in patients with coronary

heart disease, as this may lead

to transitory deterioration of the

patient’s condition (see section

4.2).

Concor must be used with

caution in patients with

hypertension or angina pectoris

and accompanying heart failure.

……

Use of Concor may give

positive results in doping tests.

The treatment of stable chronic heart

failure with bisoprolol has to be

initiated with a special

titration phase.

Especially in patients with ischaemic

heart disease the cessation of therapy

with bisoprolol

must not be done abruptly unless

clearly indicated, because this may lead

to transitional

worsening of heart condition.

The initiation and cessation of

treatment with bisoprolol

necessitates regular monitoring.

Concor therapy should not be

stopped abruptly, particularly not in

patients with coronary heart disease,

as this may lead to transitory

deterioration of the patient’s

condition (see section 4.2).

Concor must be used with caution in

patients with hypertension or angina

pectoris and accompanying heart

failure.

There is no therapeutic experience of

bisoprolol treatment of heart failure in

patients with the

following diseases and conditions:

insulin dependent diabetes mellitus

(type I)

severely impaired renal function

severely impaired hepatic function

restrictive cardiomyopathy

congenital heart disease

haemodynamically significant organic

valvular disease

myocardial infarction within 3 months

…..

Combination of bisoprolol with calcium

antagonists of the verapamil or

diltiazem type, with

Class I antiarrhytmic drugs and with

centrally acting antihypertensive drugs

is generally not

recommended, for details please refer

to section 4.5.

Although cardioselective (beta1) beta-

blockers may have less effect on lung

function than

non-selective beta-blockers, as with all

beta-blockers, these should be avoided

in patients with obstructive airways

diseases, unless there are compelling

clinical reasons for their use. Where

such reasons exist, Concor may be used

with caution.

……..

Use of Concor may give positive

results in doping tests.

Pharmacological

properties

5.1

Pharmacodynamic

properties

....

The maximum effect of

bisoprolol sets in 3-4 hours

after oral administration.

The plasma elimination

half-life of 10-12 hours

results in 24-hour efficacy

when administered once

daily. In general, the

maximum antihypertensive

effect of bisoprolol is

achieved after 2 weeks of

treatment.

.....

Bisoprolol suppresses the

response to

sympathoadrenergic activity

by blocking cardiac beta

receptors. This causes

slowing of the heart beat

and decreasing contractility

thus leading to reduced

mycocardial oxygen

consumption. The latter

represents the desired effect

in patients with angina

pectoris and underlying

coronary heart disease.
