Bystolic Overview

Nebivolol is a beta blocker used to treat high blood pressure and heart failure.[1] As with other β-blockers, it is generally a less preferred treatment for high blood pressure.[2] It may be used by itself or with other blood pressure medication.[2] It is taken by mouth.[2] Common side effects include dizziness, feeling tired, nausea, and headaches.[2] Serious side effects may include heart failure and bronch...

Bystolic 5.0 mg split dose for atrial fibrillation

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? ## Aspirin a Day ...... do they really know what time it is ? ## Is by Bistolic akin to sotalol? I have been taking sotalol for years, and it may be having the same effects on me. ## @Yvette, 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. @Zorro, 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, t...

Bystolic & high potassium...

I started bystolic (5mg, now up to 10) a couple weeks ago. I got a test result of a high potassium level, which I know requires attention. I took supplements before all this started, but stopped immediately when I was put on meds. My dr says bystolic would not have caused this, more likely it was the supplements. My kidney panel was good. Has anyone had a potassium issue with bystolic? ## Bystolic contains the active ingredient Nebivolol, which is a beta blocker that is used to treat high blood pressure and certain cardiac conditions. And though it is rare, it has happened with this class of medications, because they can inhibit potassium from entering your cells. It could even have been a combination of the medication and the supplements you were taking. Are there any other questions o...

Anyone experience the bystolic side effects?

I have been on 10mg for 2 years about 6 months ago I would have brief lightheadedness& weakness feeling, especially when standing, visual disturbances diagnosed as painless ocular migraines, sleep difficulty,occasional joint pain, and a feeling of "skipped" heart beats, and slowed then speeded up to normal heart rate...had an EEG Carotid scan , and MRI all normal have scheduled a cardiologist apt but after reading this thread I wonder if these symptoms are from the bystolic?? I will certainly mention it-i never had a fast heart rate to begin with... ## anyone out there??? ## Hello, Jersey! How are you? It would be very odd for them to be caused by the medication after you've been on it for 2 years, but it is possible. Are you on any other medications? How much fluid do y...

Heart rate return after stopping bystolic

After taking first atenolol and then bystolic for several years, I've now been switched from the beta blocker to amlodipine. My cardiologist told me not to taper down the bystolic, just switch to the cc blocker. Today is day 3 (my last dose of bystolic was Saturday) and my resting heart rate is still ranging from about 49-55, even with coffee. How long should it take until the heart rate recovers to a more normal level? ## It may take a week, or two, although the Amlodipine could also lower your heart rate, as well as your blood pressure. The NIH lists its other typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, increased urination, and hypotension. Has there been any change? Are you on any other medications? ## I'm a 68 y/o female on multiple Anti-Hypertens...

Bystolic left hand cold and pain

I am currently taking 5mg Bystolic. My left hand is cold off and on through out the day. During the cold hand, I also experience the pain of the muscle on my left arm. I will talk to my doctor to switch to different BP pill. ## I don't know about the medicine, but please take a second opinion before beliving any doctor. I was given wrong medication once and now i am sufferring from some nerves not working. If you could help me out for this i would be highily obliged. My doctor gave me a medicine RESNER to rest my nerve in my toes but it rested some other nerve. ## SonDragon, Bystolic contains the active ingredient Nebivolol and these types of medications work by affecting your circulation, so feeling a little cold can be normal, but it's odd that you only have it in one hand, ra...

Bystolic and Amlodipine Besylate

A female patient has been on Bystolic 5 mg in the morning and 5 mg in the evening for 7 days, but it didn’t work for her blood pressure which remained over 185. So Amlodipine besylate 5 mg was added today. The patient is 58yrs old with Graves’ disease and was diagnosed after she had atrial fib. ## They added a new medication after just 7 days? How high is her blood pressure, and how bad is her afib? Most medications in this class take about 4 weeks to reach their full level of efficacy in the body. Although, if someone's blood pressure, or cardiac condition are very high, sometimes more than one is prescribed. The FDA lists the typical side effects of these medications as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, hypotension, and increased urination. Is she on any ...

BYSTOLIC: 5mg - Anyone Experience Stomach/Intestinal Issues?

I've been on this medication @ 2yrs after coming from Metoprolol 10mg. They were/are prescribed for lowering my heart rate and helping with Anxiety. I feel it has done both! Occasionally I get a 'fluttering' sensation. But what is really troubling me is the recent stomach and intestinal issues: Acid reflux, trapped gas in upper stomach area after eating certain foods. I can't find any definitive answers if it fact causes gastrointestinal problems...? Can anyone confirm? ## Yes, most medications can cause gastrointestinal issues. You may have developed gastritis, which could require medical treatment. Have you consulted your doctor? Have you tried taking any antacids or antigas products? ## I take Alka Seltzer and sometimes when it does not work I have to take a Nexium ty...

2.5 mg bystolic

I've been on bystolic now for a week. I've been prescribed 5 mg. But I've been taking 2.5 mg for the past five days. I want to be weaned off considering my heart rate skyrockets from major depression disorder. From depression and anxiety all started from being put on a beta blocker in the beginning. My cardiologist didn't understand that I'm highly afraid of doctors and hospitals so from then I was put on one.. am I able to wean correctly from 2.5 mg? How do you go from a lower dose of 2.5 mg. ## Also I will add that I've been on the mirena for almost a year. Scheduled a appointment to get it removed since I think that's what's causing some of my issues as well. ## Hello, Cassie! How are you doing? Has here been any change, yet? It is hard to say, but it ...

Headaches with Bystolic

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 add...

Bystolic 10mg for blood pressure

I recently went to fill my rx at my local pharmacy. I was told that bystolic would not be in until the end of the month because it was being repackage for 90 day supplies. I have already paid for a 90 day supply at the cost of $113.00 and the pharmacist suggested that I go with the 5mg for now and take two of these to make the 10 mg. This will Now cost me another $80.00. I am not going to do this. I really like the bystolic. It does well for me but I cannot afford this. I should not have to pay for your untimely mistake. I was never notified that all of this was going to take place. How do you suggest I solve this problem? I cannot go without a blood pressure pill until the end of the month. ## They are saying there are problems. 10/28/14 Bystolic 10mg tablet unavailable. 10/15/14 Manuf...
