Side Effects of Nebivolol
In clinical studies, nausea, headache, and fatigue were some of the most commonly reported nebivolol side effects. While most side effects are mild and either do not require medical attention or can be treated easily, some are potentially serious and should be reported to your healthcare provider immediately. Some of these serious effects include unexplained rash, fainting, and difficult or painful breathing.
As with any medicine, side effects are possible with nebivolol (Bystolic®). However, not everyone who takes the medication will have problems. In fact, most people tolerate it quite well. If side effects do occur, in most cases, they are minor and either require no treatment or are easily treated by you or your healthcare provider.
(This article covers many, but not all, of the possible side effects with nebivolol. Your healthcare provider can discuss a more complete list of nebivolol side effects with you.)
