Will bisoprolol/hydrochlorothiazide cure my high blood pressure?

Bisoprolol-hydrochlorothiazide (HCTZ) does not cure high blood pressure, but it does help control it and reduces the risk of serious cardiovascular problems and kidney disease. Your doctor may use this medication as one part of a treatment plan that includes dietary changes and weight control. Continue taking bisoprolol-HCTZ as directed by your doctor even if you feel normal or well. Many individuals will need to take a medication like bisoprolol-HCTZ to control high blood pressure for the rest of their life.
