Comment:
My doctor put me on 5mg of this in addition to the 80mg of Edarbi that I currently take. The drug did lower my heart rate like a beta blocker should, but it didn't do anything to lower my blood pressure. I also started having minor upper chest discomfort but nothing too bad. My doctor is now going to try out a calcium channel blocker on me.

This medication has lowered my blood pressure to normal and has an added asset of a calming effect. Helps me by keeping my adrenaline down so I don't have too much anxiety.

Comment:
Bystolic worked to lower my Blood Pressure but had to stop taking it because my fingers and hands turned blue, white, and became numb without warning. This numbness lasted 30-45 minutes each time.. Could not feel my fingers during this time. Plus my fingers were very painful. If this happens to anyone taking Bystolic notify your Doctor. Tried taking this pill for 3 months.

Taking 10 mg/day to lower sudden onset hypertension 164/105. But after a few months I developed leg cramping and eventually generalized muscle and joint pains especially in hands and neck. Not sure if there is a connection here.
