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.

Comment:
For those complaining about the BYSTOLIC side effects after switching from other beta blockers such as TOPROL/METOPROLOL, make sure you were not taking the generic versions.
