Hypertension Home > Nebivolol Drug Information

Nebivolol (Bystolic®) is a prescription drug approved for the treatment of high blood pressure (hypertension). This beta blocker comes in the form of a tablet and is sold in three strengths. Headaches, fatigue, and nausea are some of the most commonly reported side effects. However, most people are able to take it without any problems, and when reactions do occur, they tend to be minor and easy to treat.
 
Although the drug is generally well tolerated, it is not suitable for everyone. Before using nebivolol, make sure your healthcare provider has up-to-date information on your medical history and a list of your current medications. In particular, let your healthcare provider know if you have problems such as liver disease, diabetes, or asthma.
