I have been on this medicine for about 2 weeks now. After taking lisinopril for 1 week, with horrible side effects, this is a miracle drug for me. The side effects are minimal and my bp has been lowered considerably.

Comment:
I have had bad reactions to almost every blood pressure drug I've been on. When my dr. gave me Bystolic I was hoping for something that would really help me. And, for the first week it did. It was great - lowered my bp to around 116/78. But then, I started having itching and irritated eyelids. I thought it was a reaction to make-up. But, after several days of not using the make-up the pr ... Show Full Comment
