My dr put me on Bystolic about 2 wks ago for high blood pressure and rapid heart beat. Even while relaxing my bp would run 150/90 and 130 bpm. So far it's been an avg of 120/88 bp and 80 bpm.

Comment:
This medication has worked to lower my BP, from around 150/110 to 115/65 on average. It also helps with my anxiety and benign PVCs. The only side effects I have experienced are feeling drowsy and light-headed. I feel a little "out-of-it" some days.
