Comment:
This drug did slow my heart rate but it slowed it down too much. My doctor told me to split the tablet which was nice since this would save me money at the same time. It still slows my heart rate into the 60's versus the 50's bpm. I read that this drug was less likely to cause ED but neveertheless I still have ED.

Comment:
My doctor put me on 5mg of this in addition to the 80mg of Edarbi that I currently take. The drug did lower my heart rate like a beta blocker should, but it didn't do anything to lower my blood pressure. I also started having minor upper chest discomfort but nothing too bad. My doctor is now going to try out a calcium channel blocker on me.
