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. Consequently, my doctor prescribed an SSRI anti-depressant, Lexapro, which completely regulates my seratonin and makes me sleep well. Otherwise, Bystolic is great and has completely lowered my BP.
