Previous Bystolic user for 2 years 5mg daily, always at night.. Frankly I felt awful, Deep Deep muscle pain that started when I started taking Bystoic, I gained 10 pounds plus, priced way too high that med was not for me.

I have been on this medication for one week now. I am taking 50mg a day. This medcation has made my hands and feet feel cold everyday, confusion, slight memory loss,tingling in the hands, bizarre dreams & shortness of breath. Don't take this medication, there is something better out there.

I have been taking Lopressor since 1995 and it was great up til the last 2 years. I have been losing my hair in the last 2 years and I have talked to 2 other people I know on this same drug and they have the same problem. The common denominator is Lopressor so I am convinced it is this medication.
