I have been on bystolic for 3 weeks and noticed immediate response with regular readings 115/70. Af first I really noticed fatigue, but have adjusted to that. Now I notice heartburn that I have never had before, and some achiness in my upper back and shoulders. Would like to reduce the dose, will ask at my next appt.

Since taking bystolic I'm tired all the time,so I take it at night before I go to bed. It makes it easier. I still need a nap in the Afternoon. It did lower my bp though.
