Blood Pressure Home > Bystolic Pills

Healthcare providers often prescribe Bystolic® (nebivolol) for the treatment of high blood pressure in adults. It belongs to a class of drugs called beta blockers, which have been shown to decrease heart rate and both systolic and diastolic blood pressure.
Bystolic pills come in three different strengths: 2.5 mg, 5 mg, and 10 mg. The medication is typically taken by mouth once a day. The specific dosage that your healthcare provider recommends will vary depending on factors such as the severity of your high blood pressure and how you respond to the medication. The pills can be taken at any time of day, as long as they are taken at the same time each day.
