Comment:
even though my doctor disagrees.... I believe that Bystolic reduces and slows metabolism. Eventhough I do 30 mins of medium intensity cardio every day and control diet. Weight just maintains.

I have been on this medication for over 2 years now and I have not had any side effects. It lowers my blood pressure and I am not lethargic at work like I was when I was on propranalol. Great medication.

Comment:
I was switched to this drug after other meds were not as effective in controlling by blood pressure. I stopped taking this medicine after I developed a persistent cough. There was a change in my vision; there were auras around everything in sight. Once I stopped taking this drug the cough went away and my vision was back o normal.

Comment:
I have been taking 10MG of this drug twice a day. My prescription provider now will not give me 10mgx2 and will only give me 1x 20mg daily. Puzzling to me. Will the 20mg pill last 24 hours or be too strong for once a day.
