DESCRIPTION

Bisoprolol fumarate; hydrochlorothiazide is indicated for the treatment of hypertension. It combines two antihypertensive agents in a once-daily dosage; a synthetic beta1-selective (cardioselective) adrenoceptor blocking agent (bisoprolol fumarate) and a benzothiadiazine diuretic (hydrochlorothiazide).

Bisoprolol fumarate is chemically described as (± )-1-(4-((2-(1-Methylethoxy)ethoxy)methyl)phenoxy)-3-((1-methylethyl)amino)-2-propanol (E)-2-butenedioate (2:1) (salt). It possesses an asymmetric carbon atom in its structure and is provided as a racemic mixture. The S(-) enantiomer is responsible for most of the beta-blocking activity. Its empirical formula is (C18H31NO4)2C4H4O4 and it has a molecular weight of 766.97.

Bisoprolol fumarate is a white crystalline powder, approximately equally hydrophilic and lipophilic, and readily soluble in water, methanol, ethanol, and chloroform.

Hydrochlorothiazide (HCTZ) is 6-Chloro-3,4-dihydro-2H-1,2,4-benzothiadiazine-7-sulfonamide 1,1-dioxide. It is a white, or practically white, practically odorless crystalline powder. It is slightly soluble in water, sparingly soluble in dilute sodium hydroxide solution, freely soluble in n-butylamine and dimethylformamide, soluble in methanol, and insoluble in ether, chloroform, and dilute mineral acids. Its empirical formula is C7H8ClN3O4S2 and it has a molecular weight of 297.73.

Each bisoprolol fumarate; HCTZ 2.5 mg/6.25 mg tablet for oral administration contains bisoprolol fumarate 2.5 mg, hydrochlorothiazide 6.25 mg.

Each bisoprolol fumarate; HCTZ 5 mg/6.25 mg tablet for oral administration contains bisoprolol fumarate 5 mg, hydrochlorothiazide 6.25 mg

Each bisoprolol fumarate; HCTZ 10 mg/6.25 mg tablet for oral administration contains bisoprolol fumarate 10 mg, hydrochlorothiazide 6.25 mg
