Blood Pressure Home > Bystolic 10 mg Tablets
Bystolic® (nebivolol) is a beta blocker medicine often prescribed for the treatment of high blood pressure. It is available by prescription only and comes in the following strengths:
- 2.5 mg Bystolic tablets
- 5 mg Bystolic tablets
- 10 mg Bystolic tablets.
The usual starting Bystolic dose for most people with high blood pressure is 5 mg once daily. If necessary, your healthcare provider may increase your dose slowly (such as to 10 mg) once every two weeks, up to a maximum of 40 mg once daily.
As with all beta blockers, you should not abruptly stop taking Bystolic, as serious problems (including heart attacks) may result. Your healthcare provider will advise you on how to safely stop taking this medication. It is recommended to slowly reduce the dose over a period of one to two weeks, with careful monitoring. Let your healthcare provider know if you develop chest pain or any other problems while stopping Bystolic.
