What is the drug bystolic?
Asked by Mildred Knuteson 6 months ago.
Bystolic is in a group of drugs called beta-blockers. Beta-blockers affect the heart and circulation (blood flow through arteries and veins). Bystolic is used to treat hypertension (high blood pressure). It works by slowing down the heart and decreasing the amount of blood it pumps out. This helps to decrease blood pressure.

Asked by Bev Liuzzi 6 months ago.
seems like a lot. Before taking Bystolic, tell your doctor if you are using: digitalis (digoxin, Lanoxin); clonidine (Catapres); reserpine; guanethidine (Ismelin); a heart medication such as nifedipine (Procardia, Adalat), reserpine (Serpasil), verapamil (Calan, Verelan, Isoptin), diltiazem (Cartia, Cardizem); heart rhythm medicine such as amiodarone (Cordarone, Pacerone), disopyramide (Norpace), procainamide (Procan, Pronestyl), propafenone (Rythmol), quinidine (Quinidex, Quin-Release Quin-G), and others; an antidepressant such as fluoxetine (Prozac), paroxetine (Paxil), and others; or another beta-blocker such as atenolol (Tenormin), bisoprolol (Zebeta), labetalol (Normodyne, Trandate), metoprolol (Lopressor, Toprol), propranolol (Inderal, InnoPran), sotalol (Betapace), or timolol (Blocadren), and others. This list is not complete and there may be other drugs that can interact with Bystolic. Tell your doctor about all the prescription and over-the-counter medications you use. This includes vitamins, minerals, herbal products, and drugs prescribed by other doctors. Do not start using a new medication without telling your doctor. Answered by Kacy Cottrill 6 months ago.
Is 5mg of bystolic the same as 25 mg of metoprolol?
My Dr just switched my pills just because of the price difference but I'm a little concerned with the mgs? The pharmacists told me mg doesn't related to the dose but to how big the pill is and that really made No sense to me!!
Asked by Virgina Thomas 6 months ago.
I am NOT a doctor or pharmacist. 5 mg of bystolic is a mid-range dose of that medication. 25 mg of metoprolol is also a mid-range dose of metoprolol. It's reasonable for your physician to have substituted one for the other like that. Just follow-up with a blood pressure check, either your own, or at your doctor's office, to make sure that the new medication is just as effective as the old one. I switched to metoprolol a few years back for cost reasons. Just as good as my old medication for blood pressure control, and much cheaper. The side effects are less of a problem for me, too. :-) Answered by Gilbert Mizrahi 6 months ago.
Comparing the two is kind of like comparing apples and oranges. Yes, they're both fruit, but they have their own unique pros and cons. The milligrams only measure the weight of the actual tablet, not the weight of the active ingredients--both drugs most likely contain some sort of filler. Metoprolol and Bystolic contain active ingredients that are different compounds, so the weight of their individual atoms will be different. That being said, the potency of each of these compounds is different--a smaller dose of Bystolic can be used to achieve similar results. I can understand why you would want to try a cheaper alternative. Hope this helped! Answered by Claribel Weisgerber 6 months ago.
Bystolic 5 Mg Answered by Lorretta Medas 6 months ago.
In answer to your question: 5 mg or 25 mg is a very tiny amount when you weigh it out. Pills generally are mostly filler--with such things as milk powder or sugar--to make them large enough to handle easily. For comparison, a teaspoon of something usually weighs around 5 grams--5000 milligrams. So for a pill to be made up exclusively of metoprolol, for example, it would have to be the size of 1/200 of a teaspoon. Answered by Coreen Winkowski 6 months ago.
Because of its unique formulation, Bystolic may be more effective and have fewer side effects than metoprolol. Answered by Jamee Unga 6 months ago.
Bystolic Dosage Answered by Simon Pocklington 6 months ago.
I have been on Bystolic for 6 weeks and I am having a low pluse, missed beats and extra beats.
This is making me feel nausea and deep sighing. Any help would be appreciated
Asked by Maile Bayt 6 months ago.
I would suggest that you see your doctor as soon as possible. Slow or uneven heartbeats is a serious side effect of Bystolic (nebivolol). Other serious side effects are feeling short of breath, even with mild exertion; swelling of your ankles or feet; slow or uneven heartbeats; or numbness or cold feeling in your hands and feet. Less serious side effects may include: headache; tired feeling; nausea, stomach pain; diarrhea; or sleep problems (insomnia). Get emergency medical help if you have any of these signs of an allergic reaction: hives; difficulty breathing; swelling of your face, lips, tongue, or throat.

What is the differance between benicar hct and bystolic?
blood pressure medicines
Asked by Jeanice Strite 6 months ago.
Both drugs work to lower blood pressure, but they work in different ways. First, Benicar HCT is actually a combination product including two drugs. The first drug is Benicar (generic name Olmesartan) and the second is hydrochlorothiazide (often abbreviated HCT or HCTZ). Benicar is an angiotensin II receptor antagonist and works by blocking the effect of angiotensin II in the body. Angiotensin II causes vasoconstriction (the blood vessels constrict and there is less room for blood to pass through increasing blood pressure) and by blocking this effect the Benicar helps to keep blood vessels dilated (open wide for easier blood passage) which helps lower blood pressure. Hydrochlorothiazide is a thiazide diuretic which causes an increased removal of sodium and chloride by the kidneys, and whose mechanism for lowing blood pressure is not fully understood. Combining both drugs into a single pill helps improve blood pressure control in patients who need more than one medication to manage their high blood pressure and find it easier to remember to take one pill instead of two. Bystolic (generic name Nebivolol) is a long acting cardioselective beta-1 antagonist that lowers heart rate and increases dilation of blood vessels which lowers blood pressure. Hope this helps!

A. Sheol is the Hebrew word for the Grave or place of the dead. Gehenna. Was used by Jesus. It was the Garbage dump at Jerusalem where garbage was dumped and fire was continuely burning but nothing alive was ever thrown there. It was a picture of complete distruction. No connection with Hell. Purgatory. Not a bible teaching. Suppose to be a place where souls go to have cleasing done before entry to Paradise. Hades. Greek word for the grave or place of the dead. Those who die go to Hades, Sheol or Gehenna. Those in Hades or sheol will have a resurrection in God's due time but those not worthy of futher life will go to Gehenna which is a place of complete destruction with no hope of future life. Hell..The same meaning as Sheol and Hades. Grave from which there will be a resurrection in God's due time Limbo..

Hello YA community, I've recently just been prescribed Bystolic, a new beta blocker that just came out, for my blood pressure and because I keep having head 'jitters'. I'm on Clonazepam; 1 mg a pill, have been for 7 months and I hate taking medicine that I have to taper off of. My doctor told me I would not have to taper off of Bystolic but from what I'm reading, you do. And also, I'm concerned about what I've been reading from other websites about it saying if I stop taking it, I could have a heart attack. Anybody taking this drug or have any information about it? Answered by Marjorie Shazier 6 months ago.
It is recommended to taper off beta blockers which Bystolic is. Tapering off is especially important for patients with coronary artery disease. If you do not have this disease then tapering off a beta blocker is less important. Since you said you have high blood pressure I would assume this is why your doctor said you do not have to taper off the drug. Answered by Jenee Adams 6 months ago.
What is the cost of bystolic drug for high blood pressure?
Asked by Theodore Brabston 6 months ago.
Since it is brand name, it will be pretty expensive. If you are paying cash price (no insurance) expect between $100-200 for a 30 day supply. If you do have insurance coverage, your copay will vary based on what tier your insurance provider places bystolic into. You could call them for that information.
