Instructions for Taking Nebivolol and Clinical Effects

Clinical Effects

Nebivolol has been evaluated thoroughly in clinical studies. These studies showed that it reduced systolic blood pressure by up to 11.7 mmHg and diastolic blood pressure by up to 8.3 mmHg, on average, in people with mild to moderate high blood pressure. One study also showed that nebivolol can provide a further reduction when added to other blood pressure medications.
 

When and How to Take Nebivolol

Some general considerations for those taking nebivolol include the following:
 
  • Nebivolol comes in tablet form. It is usually taken by mouth once a day.
     
  • You can take the medication with a meal or on an empty stomach. If nebivolol seems to bother your stomach, try taking it with food.
     
  • You can take nebivolol at any time of the day. However, it is best to take it at the same time each day.
     
  • For the medication to work properly, it must be taken as prescribed. Nebivolol will not work if you stop taking it.
     
  • In general, this medication should not be stopped suddenly, as serious problems (including heart attacks) may result.
     

Dosing Information

The dose of nebivolol your healthcare provider recommends will vary, depending on a number of factors, including:
 
  • The severity of your high blood pressure
  • How you respond to the medication
  • Other medications you are taking
  • Other medical conditions you have.
     
As always, do not adjust your dose unless your healthcare provider specifically instructs you to do so.
