Bystolic (generic name: Nebivolol) is a drug which is prescribed for the treatment of hypertension, also known as high blood pressure. Bystolic and generic Nebivolol belong to the group of drugs called beta blockers. Beta blockers work by affecting the heart and circulation (the blood flow through the arteries to veins to the heart). High blood pressure often goes unnoticed in patients and therefore it is dubbed the “silent killer”, and if it left untreated it can lead to angina (pain in the chest), heart failure, stroke and even heart attack. Bystolic helps to control and lower the blood pressure to reduce the risk of these severe conditions from developing. Bystolic may be used as part of a complete treatment program which may include changes to the diet and an increase in exercise.
Bystolic Side Effects:
As with any drug, there may be side effects from taking Bystolic including headache, fatigue, nausea, stomach pain, diarrhea and sleep problems. More serious side effects may include feeling short of breath, swelling in the ankles or feet, slow or uneven heartbeat, numbness and a cold feeling in the hands and feet. If you experience any side effects you must seek immediate medical attention for safety.
You should follow the instructions of the doctor who prescribed it you, and there will also be dosage and information on the pack. Bystolic comes in tablet form and can be taken with or without food. Do not crush, break or chew Bystolic as this may cause too much of the drug to be released at once which could have undesirable effects. It should be taken at the same time every day. Bystolic should be stored at room temperature away from direct light and heat. Do not stop taking Bystolic without consulting your doctor.
If you are allergic to any of the ingredients of Bystolic you should not take it, and should inform your doctor. You must consult your doctor if you have any pre-existing medical conditions, including liver or kidney disease, asthma or other respiratory illness, diabetes, thyroid disorder, a history of allergies, problems with circulation, pheochromocytoma or if you have ever suffered a heart attack. You should consult your doctor if you are taking any other medications, as they may interact with Bystolic including digitalis, clonidine, reserpine, other heart or blood pressure medications, antidepressants or other beta blockers. You should also inform you doctor if you are pregnant, planning to conceive or breastfeeding as Bystolic may cause harm to your baby.
