The inactive ingredients in the tablets are lactose monohydrate, microcrystalline cellulose, copovidone, croscarmellose sodium, colloidal silicon dioxide, magnesium stearate, talc, ferric oxide, hypromellose, polysorbate 80, and Opadry® II Purple film-coat. The Opadry® II is made of polyvinyl alcohol-part hydrolyzed, titanium dioxide, talc, polyethylene glycol, iron oxide red, and ferrosoferric oxide/black iron oxide.

Nebivolol

BYVALSON™ tablets contain nebivolol hydrochloride as one of two active ingredients. Nebivolol hydrochloride is chemically described as (1RS,1'RS)-1,1'-[(2RS, 2'SR)-bis(6-fluoro-3,4-dihydro-2H-1benzopyran-2-yl)]-2,2'-iminodiethanol hydrochloride. Nebivolol hydrochloride is present as a racemic mixture of d-Nebivolol hydrochloride and l-Nebivolol hydrochloride with the stereochemical designations of [SRRR]-nebivolol hydrochloride and [RSSS]-nebivolol hydrochloride, respectively. The molecular formula of both the forms is C22H25F2NO4•HCl and their structural formulas are provided below:
