    After ER visit for HPB 200/104 Dr. put me on Bystolic and HCTZ. Has not controlled my BP. It fluctuates from 176/96 to 116/68 and pulse is from 50 to 40. My feet and legs are not swelling but I have cramps in my feet and knees at night and horrible nightmares. I am also experiencing gas pains in lower abdomen daily. Constantly dizzy and tired. Got to find something else this can't continue ... Show Full Comment

    Cardiologist prescribed to reduce white coat high blood pressure even though BP in normal at home. 1 hour after taking my BP rose to 186/108. Dr. said no relation to drug, get that, thanks DR. Quit that real fast. Be sure to monitor your BP after taking drug in case it works in reverse.

    I've been taking the drug for approx. 5 yrs. The only side effects I've gotten from it are occasional dizzy spells and foot cramps. I take mine at night because I think it makes me a little drowsy.

    Some of the people who are leaving feedback must be the types that will find anything wrong with anything! I have taken this drug for quite some time -- as with anything, you need to stick with it a while to get its full benefit. I have always had high BP. At 34 years old, I was diagnosed with acute hypogonadism, and I had to take eight pumps of the older version of Androgel, which is the highe ... Show Full Comment

    I have been taking Bystolic 10 mg every morning for the past three to four years for hypertension without bothersome side effects. The medication maintained my blood pressure pretty well even during a death of a close family member. The only issue I have is the cost of the medication through my prescription insurance but will continue taking it because it works and doesn't have any noticeable ... Show Full Comment
