    I was put on this medication after a year of moderately high diastolic pressures with a sudden surge in BP to 200 /140. I felt immediate relief of at least three years of extreme fatigue. My BP dropped to normal for the first time in probably ten years. I had energy, felt alive again. I stopped putting on weight for no reason. I take 5 mg in the a.m. And 5 mg at night.

    In July 2015 I was put on this med. . I started at 5mg but the med. lowered my heartbeat so my Dr. changed my dose to 2.5 mg at night . I've been nauseous, dizzy and I've had weight gain on this med .. I'm in the process of trying to get off this med. .

    I have tried several different HBP meds and all produced side effects. However, the 2.5 mg I take of Bystolic has lowered my BP and kept it pretty regular w/o any side effects. It has lowered my pulse to around 65, but overall, I have been happy with this drug. I do wish they would make it cheaper though.
