No: Bisoprolol and its drug class, the beta blockers, are being studied for use in pulmonary hypertension. There isn’t a definite answer on it yet. As of now, while some individual practitioners might feel comfortable prescribing it on the basis of of their own experience, my own assessment is that the majority of evidence does not support the use of bisoprolol for pulmonary hypertension at this time.
