Have been on 5 mg Bystolic past 10 days for recently diagnosed afib, the headaches have been daily and rough, also vivid, upsetting dreams and heavy fatigue, pulse 50 and feeling weak, cut the dose to 2.5 for the past 3 days with no improvement, any chance things will get better?

Those can be normal side effects of this medication, as reported by the FDA. Typically, side effects are transient and go away in time, once your body adjusts to the medication, but that could take 4 to 5 weeks.

However, the low heart rate is a concern and you should speak to your doctor, because you may need to switch to a different medication.

Is there anything else I can help with?

I could not deal with the headaches, especially since pain meds are a concern while I take Coumadin too. The low pulse added dizziness and not falling is also a concern, so I have been taken off Bystolic and now take lopressor, which seems to have its own issues too, traded to edema around the waist, swollen fingers and ankles. Now what? Cant take a diuretic due to compromised kidneys from an overdose of lasix when hospitalized for the first afib. This is a never ending circle of feeling poorly from side effects.

Been on Bystolic 5mg for about a week straight. Felt fine the first few days now getting headaches that sometimes last all day. Is this from Bystolic? And how long do I expect the side effects to last? It’s helping a great deal with my blood pressure. Thanks.
