Corbis 5 mg is widely used as an antihypertensive medicine. It is effective in treating hypertension, chest pain, and heart attack. The medication is often prescribed as a secondary prevention of heart attack. It prevents chest pain and improves survival of a heart attack. It contains the active ingredient Bisoprolol, which belongs to a class of medications known as beta blockers. It causes relaxation of the blood vessels and reduces the blood pressure and heart rate. Beta-blockers are the drugs that target beta receptors present mainly in the heart, airways, arteries, smooth muscles, and kidneys. They decrease the heart's workload, help to beat more regularly, and control mild to moderate high blood pressure.

You must swallow the whole tablet with one glass full of water. Do not crush or chew the tablet. Depending on the patient's condition and demand, the dose can be increased or decreased. With time, dose adjustments are generally done according to the patient's response. Abrupt discontinuation of medicine can cause adverse reactions.
