In reply to Re: atenolol vs metoprolol, posted by SLS on April 18, 2006, at 6:54:42

I personally like bisoprolol. It's very similar to metoprolol in its properties except it has a longer duration of action - somewhat longer than atenolol in fact, providing better 24 hour coverage when given as a single daily dose.

Bisoprolol is very popular in the UK, certainly more popular than metoprolol. Bisoprolol is used for heart failure, hypertension and angina. It is very well established in heart failure: it is cardioprotective and prolongs life.

I hear bisoprolol is rarely used in the US. I guess it was badly marketed. It's currently available as an inexpensive generic in the UK, I don't know whether it's generic in the US though.
