stopping bystolic meds

So I was put on Bystolic meds for high blood pressure only as a short term solution until I was balanced, It has been 2 months and my doctor wanted me to wean off by taking half a pill a day for seven days then stop completely. I stopped completely today and I want to know what I should expect now that I am off the drug. What feelings should I expect and how should my B/P be. I usually would take the dose at 3pm and now at 8:30 my B/P is 133/75 before I started to drug it was usually around 150 or higher. With the drug its usually around 115. I will call my doctor in the am to speak to him and see what I should do but I wanted some thoughts on this. I feel as though my anxiety is high because I am stopping this drug and don't know what to expect so maybe the B/P is a little elevated from the anxiety I feel. Thanks.
