My blood pressure was great after 3 weeks. However, my sleep decreased from 7 hours per night to 15 hours per week; chronic fatigue and tiredness, and moderate weight gain. I have had all the loss in quality of life I can take. I quit and changed doctors.

Dermatologist thinks it “may” be the Lisinopril – cardiologist doesn’t think so, but, suggested I try Bystolic. After reading the comments, might just try “spin the dru ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
I have been on 5mg of Bystolic for 5 weeks now. I was switched from Lisinopril (took for 6 weeks), which was causing breathing problems, sinus issues, extreme fatigue and frequent dizziness. All of these side effects went away within a week of stopping the medication. Bystolic has slowed my heart rate down, and eased my White Coat Syndrome quite a bit. During dr's visits, I would get up to ... Show Full Comment
