About Bystolic (Nebivolol)

How does it work?

Bystolic works by blocking specific receptors in the heart and blood vessels, which lowers the heart rate and reduces the force of the heart's contractions. This helps to lower blood pressure and reduce the heart's workload, making it easier for the heart to pump blood efficiently.

What does it treat?

It’s primarily used to treat high blood pressure (hypertension), which happens when the force of blood against the artery walls is too high. It can also be prescribed to improve heart function in some individuals with heart failure.

What forms does it come in?

This hypertension medicine comes in the form of tablets you take by mouth. These tablets release the medication slowly into your body, which helps control high blood pressure or heart failure.

Bystolic vs. Nebivolol

Bystolic and Nebivolol are the same medication—Bystolic is a brand name for the generic version, Nebivolol. They both contain the same active ingredient and treat conditions like high blood pressure and heart failure in the same way.

How much will it cost?

Dr. B offers online consultations for $15—which is less than most copays. If a high blood pressure prescription is appropriate, your out-of-pocket medication cost will depend on your insurance and where you decide to get your prescription filled. With a drug discount card, prices for Nebivolol 5 mg (30 tablets) start at $14.33.

How do you take this medication?

You take this hypertension treatment by mouth with or without food, usually once daily, as directed by your licensed medical provider.

High blood pressure is a long-term (chronic) condition that can harm your organs. Medications for blood pressure are not a one-time cure. This medicine doesn't provide a complete cure for high blood pressure, so it's important to continue taking it, even if you start feeling better. If you stop taking it suddenly, this could cause dangerous problems, like heart attack or stroke. Follow your medical provider's instructions carefully.

What happens if I miss a dose?

If you miss a dose, take it as soon as you remember—unless it's close to your next dose. If so, skip the missed dose and take your next dose at the scheduled time. Do not take extra medication to make up for the missed dose.

What happens if I take too much?

Taking too much Bystolic can lead to symptoms like an unusually slow heart rate, hypoglycemia (low blood sugar), and fainting.

If you’ve taken too much of this medication, call your medical provider or local poison control center (800-222-1222) immediately.
