 Bystolic Nebivolol

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 2.5 mg

Does it matter if I take this med in the am or pm? I also take lotrel and microzide for high blood pressure in the am. Bystolic was prescribed for heart rhythm. ## Hello, Eddie! How are you? Usually, it is preferred that you take them in the morning, so they can control your condition during the time of day when you will be most active and experience the most fluctuations. Side effects may include nausea, dizziness, hypotension and stomach pain. Is there anything else I can help with? ...

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 ... ...

Bystolic and GA

Has anyone who takes Bystolic developed GA or granuloma annulare a skin condition? ## Hell, Dayla! How are you doing? Sorry about the GA. But no, from what I've been able to find, it hasn't been known to be caused by medications. Did your doctor have any ideas why you might have developed GA? It has sometimes been associated with some allergies, such as gluten and with Lupus. ## I did stop taking the Bystolic. I had been on it for 5 yrs. taking 10 mg. also 40mg. of Benicar. I went up to 20 mg. of the Bystolic and it wasn't managing the blood pressure and was causing alot of side effects at that amount. i wouldn't recommend taking that much Bystolic. I went back to Metoprolol ER and for right now the BP is being managed. The GA rash has not subsided and it's been almo... ...

Bystolic and PVC

Bystolic was prescribed by my doctor to control high blood pressure. The same doctor did an angiogram and placed a stent in a major artery. Following the stent placement I discovered that the Bystolic threw me into a arrhythmia called PVC (premature cardiac contraction) resulting in extreme tiredness and constant fatigue and an 8 hour visit to emergency. After 24 hours of stopping Bystolic (a decision made on my own) my heart rate returned to normal. What doctors don't know about pharmaceuticals is astounding! ## Hi, John! I'm very sorry about what happened to you. And no, doctor's don't know as much about pharmaceuticals as pharmacists, but even with what they may know, they can't be sure of how any given medication will affect you. There are always possible side ef... ...

Bystolic Reviews

I was put on Bystolic six days ago. My doctor removed me from Inderal (Propanalol) after being on that drug for 27 years. The reason she gave me is I have had bronchitis and she said Inderal accentuates the problems with asthma or bronchitis. Now, I have had bronchitis in years past and my former doctor never took me off of the drug. I now see that Bystolic is also contradictory to anyone with bronchitis and asthma problems. I have had bronchitis once this year so I don't understand the need to change. The side effects of the Bystolic have been awful, cold hands, shaky, exhausted. I wonder if this could be the withdrawal from the Inderal or the side effects? I called her associate doctor yesterday to tell him I was very uncomfortable with this and he said it couldn't be withdraw... ...

Bystolic ween off

i have taken bystolic for 2 days and it made me feel like was having a heart attack can get right off are do still to go about slowly ## Hello, Sham! How are you? No, you'd not have to wean off, if you only took it for 2 days, but if you're taking it for high blood pressure, then you need to contact your doctor to try a different medication. It isn't safe to let high blood pressure continue untreated, doing so creates the risk of heart attack, stroke and congestive heart failure. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Thanks, that will be all. I'm now on lisinopril. ## I had an EKG done because of light chest pain and shortness of breath. My left arm would also hurt sometimes with a tingle in my last 2 fingers. It came back normal. They suggested possible pericarditi... ...

Stopping bystolic

I had a catheter ablation for atrial flutter in April and began weaning off bystolic in May after 3 months on the medication as my HR was consistently below 60 even post-ablation. I weaned off over a 10 day period and my last pill was on May 21. Since my last bystolic my HR has been fluctuating a lot and I just haven't felt 'normal'. My HR during the day can fluctuate between 70-100. With 2-3 hour periods some days where's resting HR is in the high 90s. For some reason in the evening (around 6pm) my HR calms down and is in the 60s and stays there until I wake up the next morning. I also haven't felt like doing much during the day and have some lightheadedness/more labored breathing when my HR is elevated to the 80s and 90s during the day (even if just sitting on the ... ...

Bystolic questions

Hi. I am taking a new beta blocker for 20 days now. I had to because of Sotalol and Apocard is not a good combination on the longer term (I have a light form of dilated cardiomyopathy). I take Nobiten now (5 mg) in the morning. Sometimes I still get a palpy and faster heart rate in the morning. When I get up early, take my pill and start to be active right-away. Some sources on the internet say it takes about 2-4 weeks to be fully active. Anyone with same experiences? I also have a itchy feeling over my body. Some rash on hands but I guess it's because of the hot and humid weather over here. I do have eczema for years. Ever since I was on a beta blocker. I do have health anxiety and I always am scared to drop dead... Thanks! ## Hello, Kaytie! How are you? Well, your heart rate is ne... ...

Bystolic w/ neurotin

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. Learn more Neurontin details h... ...

bystolic for anxiety

I was just prescribed bystolic 5mg for anxiety/anger issues. Just wondering if I should expect good or bad results ## Bystolic contains the active ingredient Nebivolol, which is a beta blocker that's most commonly used to treat high blood pressure and heart failure. Learn more Bystolic details here. However, I have found nothing about it treating anxiety and anger issues, actually in men, it can make them worse, because it tends to increase the level of testosterone in the body. Did your doctor say how it's expected to help? ...

i like to know if Bystolic have a generic verion. ## Hello, Orlando! How are you? No, at this time there is no generic for this medication available.

Bystolic and exercise

I take bystolic 2.5 Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday. Heart rate in 50s but always has been. Keeps hbp stable. My question is , is it safe to exercise as I can't seem to get heart rate high on. Beta blocker and unsure how much is enough ## Hello, Lynn! How are you doing? Learn more Bystolic details here. In this case, the only thing I can really do is advise you to check with your doctor.

Just started bystolic

I just started on bystolic and am unsure how often to take it. After 14 hours, my bp is very good, and a bit low. I don't know whether to take another with my bp at this rate(117/74). Would it drop too low? Should I take it anyway to remain on a schedule? So confused ## 5mg bystolic ## Have you consulted your doctor? You should definitely consult with your doctor, however, just as a general rule, blood pressure that is 90/60 or higher, is not considered dangerously low, unless it is causing you symptoms, such as nausea, dizziness and drowsiness. 117/74 is actually considered to be at a normal level. How often has your doctor told you take it? Was it prescribed once daily, or twice daily? As I've already stated, low blood pressure numbers, within reason, are not dangerous, unless... ...

side effects bystolic

Hello! I was taking 5 mg. bystolic for 1 yr. until I experienced terrible side effects that I make me so disable to do anything and has been taken to the ER within 2 months period of time. My primary physician told me to stop taking it two months ago and try an alternative way of stabilizing my bp (as a trial and error first!) instead by enrolling at Zacharias Ganey Health Institute for a 10 week Course this summer. To make this story short, without taking bystolic now, my bp is normal ( lower than 130/80) everyday though it spike up once in a while to 200/ 110. However, I feel so much better and I can drive my car now BUT there are days I still feel nauseous esp. early in the morning when I got up and hasn't taken my breakfast yet or at times when I was outside the house or just si... ...

Switching to Bystolic

I'm a 25 year old female and I've been on 50 mg Toprol XR for several years now for Tachycardia. I've had Tachycardia my whole life, but wasn't put on medication until a few years ago after a full heart workup. I've noticed that my libido has dropped considerably as well as my ability to achieve orgasm. I am also on 300 mg Wellbutrin XR and a BC Pill. I know the BC pill can have that affect as well, but I noticed the side affect more so when I went from 25mg to 50mg of Toprol, so my suspicion is that it is that medication. I've done some internet research and it seems that Bystolic has less of an impact on libido than other Beta Blockers. My question is, for those who have switched to Bystolic, have you noticed any difference in libido? I am thinking of making an... ...

Anyone else with this side effect and will it go away as my body adjusts to the new med. ## Bystolic contains the active ingredient Nebivolol, which is a beta blocker and yes, it can cause diarrhea in some people, but that should ease as your body adjusts to the medication. However, if it it doesn't, or if it become worse, you should contact your doctor. Are there any other questions? ## Thanks for replying. How long wiill it take to adjust to this med. Sorry if I seem ignorant on this issue. ## Jackie, it usually takes between 4 to 6 weeks and the way you can usually tell is that will be the time when the side effects also seem to be at their worst. It's the same time the medication takes... ...
