    Started this Rx on 10/31 and it took two weeks until I saw results - from 140s/80s to 110/65. I swim for exercise - 6 miles per week. I did feel tired in the first week, but after that I have felt back to normal. I'm at normal weight for my height and have no other medical conditions or Rx's.

Every since my daughter was born, (8 months ago) Ive had a lil high blood pressure problem. I'm 20. I asked Dr to put me on lowest dose. So far so good. No anxiety attacks HALLELUJAH!

    Bystolic scared me at first because of the newness. I search it on the web and hardly NO information on it. My dr. is Indian and new to the game. I started out with a low HCTZ however it slowly stopped working for me. He introducted me to Bystolic and said it was new. It was so new my pharmacy had to order it.
