Dosage DETENSIEL 10 mg Film-coated tablet scored box of 50

Adult s : In both indications, the usual dosage is one tablet of DETENSIEL 10 mg once a day. In some severe cases, the dose may be increased to 20 mg once daily.

The maximum recommended dosage is 20 mg once a day.

In all cases, the dosage must be adapted individually, depending in particular on the heart rate and response to treatment.

Duration of treatment

Treatment with DETENSIEL is usually a long-term treatment.

Treatment with DETENSIEL should not be stopped abruptly as this may lead to transient worsening of the pathology. In patients with ischemic heart disease in particular, treatment should not be stopped abruptly. It is recommended to gradually reduce the dosage.

Special Populations

Renal or hepatic impairment

No dose adjustment is usually required in patients with mild to moderate hepatic or renal impairment. In patients with severe renal impairment (creatinine clearance <20 ml / min) and in patients with severe liver function disorders, it is recommended not to exceed the dose of 10 mg bisoprolol hemifumarate day.

The experience of bisoprolol in patients undergoing renal dialysis is limited; however, there is no evidence that it is necessary to change the dosage.


Treatment should be initiated with low doses (5 mg) and under close supervision.


As no data are available with bisoprolol in pediatrics, its use can not be recommended in children.


DETENSIEL tablets should be taken in the morning, before, during or after breakfast. They should be swallowed with a little liquid and should not be chewed.
