Effects of Bystolic

Bystolic® (nebivolol) belongs to a group of drugs called beta-adrenergic blocking agents, more often known as beta blockers. As the name implies, these drugs block beta receptors in the body. Beta receptors are located in a number of places within the body, including the heart and blood vessels. Stress hormones (such as adrenaline) bind to these receptors and cause certain reactions in the body, such as:
 
By blocking beta-1 receptors, Bystolic counteracts these effects.
 
In studies that evaluated the effects of Bystolic, this medication was shown to reduce systolic blood pressure by up to 11.7 mmHg and diastolic blood pressure by up to 8.3 mmHg (on average) in people with mild to moderate high blood pressure. Another study also showed that Bystolic can provide a further reduction when added to other blood pressure medications.
