The Grammy Says:


Started taking Bystolic 5 mg 5 weeks ago, heart date is down to 51 BPM, also put on neurotin for nerve tingling not from diabeties, started at 100mg now at 300 mg. experiencing severe depression and suicidal thoughts. I realize it's the meds. How do I reduce them without causing more serious side effects. The neurotin did not help the tingling pain, but relieved arthritic knee pain, and although my bp is down my heart rate is so low I am unable to walk uphill without shortness of breathe. Is it okay to just reduce the dosage for a few days?

Wow! Yes, it seems that they are both causing problems.

The Neurontin works on brain chemicals, so along with being an anticonvulsant that helps with nerve pain, it is also sometimes used to treat mood disorders.

And the Bystolic is a beta blocker, so it's likely what's causing the bradycardia.

Have you discussed these problems with your doctor?

The Neurontin usually needs to be slowly tapered to prevent rebound and withdrawal effects that can be worse than what you're experiencing, now…. but the Bystolic will most likely need to be replaced with a different medication.
