Concor 2.5mg (bisoprolol 2.5mg) is often prescribed to treat a number of conditions e.g. high blood pressure, angina and heart failure.
The dose of bisoprolol that is prescribed (strength and number of tablets) depends on the condition being treated and how well it is controlled.
If the maximum recommended dose is not well tolerated, gradual dose reduction may be considered, if discontinuation is considered, gradual dose decrease is recommended under prescribers instructions, since abrupt withdrawal may in some cases, lead to deterioration of the condition for which it has been prescribed..
