No issues with it

Was having chronic headaches and could not determine cause. Doctor determined they were caused by high blood pressure which is hereditary in my family even though we are generally healthy and fit. Starting taking Bystolic and it brought my blood pressure down into the normal range immediately. Only side effects I experienced were small muscle twinges when I first started taking it and I get them again if I forget to take the pill. Other than that no issues with it.

I highly recommend Bystolic

My doctor treated my extremely high blood pressure with a combination of Edarbi and Bystolic and they worked amazingly well to reduce my extremely high blood pressure with zero side effects. I highly recommend bystolic and would recommend you request this treatment from your doctor to reduce high blood pressure.

I have been taking Bystolic for over 4 years

I have been taking Bystolic for over 4 years. Prior to that, I had been on different HBP drugs never staying on one for more than 18 months due to side effects. My blood pressure has been normal as a result of Bystolic and if there are any side-effects, I cannot say they have bothered me much. While expensive, I am pleased with it as well as my doctor.
