Abstract

Beta-adrenolytics belong to the drug class that can be divided in at least three generations, and within these generations several subgroups can be distinguished. Three main beta-adrenolytics: bisoprolol, metoprolol and nabivolol are most widely and frequently used nowadays in Poland. The paper describes the clinical scenarios in which these drugs should be used properly. New data from recently published meta-analyses are also discussed.
