Comment:
I had numerous side effects for the first 3-4 months with Bystolic, but all but one has subsided: it does make my sleeping very light, and I often can't sleep more than 5 hours.

Switching from atenolol to Bystolic has greatly improved my life. I was on atenolol for 4-5 years and was always tired and complaining of feeling old and worn out.
