 4  high blood pressure some fatigue and occasional light-headed. Good beta blocker with few side effects and great heart rate control, though very expensive. Good news is that a generic is now being released by ANI pharmaceuticals, hopefully I can save some money because price is way too high. M 64 10 years

 1  Hypertension Dizziness, fatigue, mild but constant depression, anxiety, mild nausea, loss of appetite, poor sleep, frequent headaches, distorted vision Only on it for two weeks, which was about a week and a half too long. Side effects got worse, not better. Did a good job at lowering my pressure but the side effects are too numerous, too constant, to continue therapy. M 56 15 days

 1  HBP This is the WORST BP meds EVER! I currently take 50 mg of Lorsartan and 2.5mg of Bystolic at night. let me tell you, my doctor wanted me to believe that it was just anxiety. I am now suffering shakiness, numbness in my left hand and arms, heartbeat beat slowly, my chest is always hurting and always feeling tight, I have a constant nagging headache, dizzy when I wake up, eyes twitching and yes memory loss, and have no energy to do nothing. I stop all my vitamins cause I thought they were the problems. NOPE, it's the Bystolic. I'm going on 4 months and the side effects are even worse. I am finally listening to my body and I am completely taken myself off of Bystolic and would rather change my lifestyle than take this. yes it lowers my BP but what good is it if it's killing you SLOWLY. Take it off the market. F 49 3 months

 1  High Blood pressure Very sleepy in eve, trouble sleeping and waking up all night. Especially at 3:30 am. Felt like my heart is out of rhythm. Shortness of breath about 3 times. 1 of those times it was bad. Normally at night is when the heart and breathing issues happen. Indigestion and back pain. I stopped drinking, only water. Take Bystolic at same time 7pm to have long window for rest. Have to do a nap at 9pm. And finally go to bed at 11:30. Ears ringing. Had blood disorder, test were extensive, found no issues. But Doctor stated before any test. Sleep apnea could be suspected. Pulmonary test found no lung issues. After I figured out after my side effects, Increased after blood disorder. It only can be Bystolic. How to live with BP. Without meds is what I'm trying to figure out. All meds have side effects. I found if they are generic you have more problems. Bystolic is not a generic brand yet. The side effects do more damage in a way then the disease. I've been on a few BP. Meds. My first beta blocker. Doctor referred me to a cardiologist for help with my medication intolerances. I saw the Mayo Clinic had a clinic for medication intolerances. My next phone call. Going to cardio doc 7/20/21. To get off this Med. M 63 18 months

 2  Blood Pressure Hair loss about 1 year into taking medicine, reduced the dosage from 5 mg to 2.5 mg and hair returned. Now, severe leg cramps in the front thigh and shins to my foot. At times it is unbearable - called Dr...said maybe the pill is depleting my Magnesium to start taking 250mg 2x per day. Dr. will not take me off this medication and when I try to reduce the medication my BP goes right back up. The leg cramps are awful, can't sit, walk or sleep. Cardiologist, family physician, Ortho doc will not listen. Why aren't these side effects listed in the medication? F 58 2 years

 1  Doctor getting kick-back I was checking my BP daily and this POISON took my heart rate down to low 40s and nearly killed me !!! POISON - Don't take cuz many other much cheaper proven generic's out there . The low heart rate it caused Hypoxia (lack of oxygen to extremeties like fingers * toes) then as a result Neuropathy which is death of nerves endings . After that my legs swelled up with water gaining over 30 lbs. I now have permanent heart failure because of a greedy doctor prescribing poison . This poison is my death sentence !!! M 72 45 days

 5  High Blood Pressure None that I'm aware of. My doctor gave me samples of Bystolic when I was 28, I'm now 43. I don't recall having any symptoms then or over the years. Presently I do have different health issues but, since I take other meds...I can't really relate it to the bystolic. It lowered my BP, so I'm satisfied. F 43 14 years

 3  Hypertension I've been experiencing headaches, back, neck, shoulder an knee pain for last several months. Also some nausea after taking my medication. Extreme tiredness, so I started taking at night. Glad I saw these posts which now seems to explain my joint pain. Definite weight gain. Will have to talk to doctor about weening me off the bystolic.

 1  High BP I have high BP. Among other more common side effects, I also had hallucinations. Took years for me to finally realize they were connected with the Bystolic. I recently stopped taking Bystolic (slowly over time) and the second night I had been completely off Bystolic, my terrifying hallucinations are gone. F 79 10 years

BYSTOLIC  (NEBIVOLOL HYDROCHLORIDE):  Nebivolol is used to treat high blood pressure. Lowering high blood pressure helps prevent strokes, heart attacks, and kidney problems. This medication belongs to a class of drugs known as beta blockers. It works by blocking the action of certain natural substances in your body, such as epinephrine, on the heart and blood vessels. This effect lowers heart rate, blood pressure, and strain on the heart.   (Sources: U.S. Centers for Medicare Services, FDA)
