bystolic

Saw my cardiologist and he told me I run hot.  Apparently he feels my BP issues are genetic and I tend to run high numbers.  I did a treadmill stress test and my bp went up to 201/108.  I am currently on lisinpril 10/12.5  now he wants me on bystolic 5mg but agreed to allow me to start on 2.5.  

I heard nothing but bad things about the side effects of this drug and weight gain,

Has anyone else been on this?

Hi, bystolic (nebivolol) is used to control blood pressure. It can cause nausea, headache and bradycardia. It can sometimes cause peripheral edema, which is labeled as weight gain. The aim of hypertensive therapy is to normalize the pressures. If the side effects are severe then your doctor may contemplate about alternate medications. Best Regards.
