Downsides

  • Not available in less expensive generic form.
  • Taking a beta blocker might make you feel more tired or out of breath during exercise or normal daily routines. This gets better for most people, but for some might not go away.
  • Can hide symptoms of low blood sugar if you're diabetic.
  • You can't miss doses. Stopping Bystolic suddenly can cause your blood pressure to go up suddenly, which raises the risk of heart attack and stroke.
