Taking Bystolic 5.0 mg once a day for atrial fibrillation. It makes me extremely tired. Just wondering if I cut the pill and took 2.5 mg twice a day would make me less tired?

Is by Bistolic akin to sotalol? I have been taking sotalol for years, and it may be having the same effects on me.

Theoretically, a smaller dose would affect you less and therefore you'd probably experience less severe side effects. It may be worth considering if you get your doctor's approval.


Bystolic (Nebivolol) is indicated for use in treating high blood pressure. Sotalol is indicated for use in treating heart rhythm problems (arrhythmias). While they're both used for treating cardiovascular related abnormalities, the underlying use-case is different; at least in so far as what they're being marketed for. I did not look into off-label uses and whether they have any similarities in that category.

Hope this helps!
