This medication did not help at all. My average B.P. was 145/95. I experienced various side effects such as headaches when I get up in the morning & sometimes through the day. I sometimes experienced shortness of breath. Most of all I did not like the issue of not getting / maintaining erections. Needless to say, my wife did not like that issue either. I would not recommend this medication.

I don't really know if it has worked, I monitor my blood pressure and most of times it's high I may take another 5mg as my doctor directed. but most of the times my blood pressure is high. I took toprol about 4 yrs ago since they took me off of that medication I have probable been on about 10 or more medications, and I still don't feel good.

After having my first child my blood pressure went to 200/135. IV medication couldn't even bring it down. Once I started Bystolic it was down to normal again. I thank God that my Dr.finally found something that probably saved my life. I have no side effects either.
