What is this medication?

ZEBETA (Bisoprolol)
Antihypertensive/antianginal Agent, Blocks Beta 1 adrenergic receptors with little effect on Beta 2

Brand Name US: Zebeta
United Kingdom Equivalent: Cardicor

Bisoprolol is officially indicated for hypertension, atrial fibrillation, or heart failure with reduced ejection fraction.  It may also be prescribed off-label for ventricular arrhythmia.

How does this medication work? 

Beta 1 receptor is activated by adrenaline and is involved with cardiac output by increasing the volume of each pump as well as increasing the heart rate. ZEBETA (Bisoprolol) works by blocking this receptor having the reverse effect thereby reducing heart rate and stroke volume.
