    taking it for 5 years. Have resistant hypertension so tried every med over the last 25 years. This works, but it is expensive. Each year I have to get a waiver to get the 2.5mg twice a day. My provider thinks I should take a large dosage once a day. My dr. disagrees and wants a smaller dosage bid. Just who is my dr. here, the insurance company????

    I am taking Bystolic and will no longer take this drug. I have gained over 40 lbs and no matter what I have tried nothing works to lose the weight. I even did crossfit for a year and did not lose 1 single lbs. No change in my diet. Also I have no sex drive. I am switching back to an ace inhibitor.

    I've been suffering from two of its common side effects: Numbness and coldness in my feet with an itchy rash that's driving me crazy. I thought it was caused by something else until I looked it up. I am about to contact my doctor.
