Blood Pressure Home > Bystolic
Bystolic is a medication often prescribed to treat high blood pressure. By blocking beta-1 receptors, the drug causes the reverse effect of stress hormones, which can decrease heart rate and both systolic and diastolic blood pressure. Bystolic comes in tablet form and is typically taken once a day. While most people tolerate it well, potential side effects include fatigue, dizziness, and nausea.
- Increased heart rate
- Increased force with which the heart pumps blood
