Bystolic compared to other beta blockers

Common Questions and Answers about Bystolic compared to other beta blockers

bystolic

Another thing that would help me is to know if Bystolic drains the energy from you like most beta blockers because of what they do. The heart disease I have has a lot to do with my energy also, so maybe everyone isn't drained of their energy from beta blockers. Bystolic is new in the US, but has been approved for use in Europe for years. I would appreciate any information at all. Thanks for reading.
Just thought you might want to know, i went to see my cardiologist and asked him once again about taking beta blockers during pregnancy and he assured me that the only risk is that your baby may have a low birth weight but that was rare and only happened if you were taking a high dose throughout all your pregnancy. Do you take a high dose? When you had svt during your other pregnancies did it stop on its own or did you require medication such as adenosine to stop it?
I have only been on atenolol for 9 months after trying a host of calicum channel blockers , other beta blockers, this has done wonders for me and I feel ungrateful for complaining about small side effects after all I the other "things" I have endured. I really hate meds, and then there are the studies about long term use can affect blood sugar ( have family hx of diabetes) and I have put on some weight since starting atenolol.
I was tried on various beta blockers to start with, but there was only one which didn't give any side effects. I believe it is probably because of the low dosage needed compared to others. I found Bisoprolol was the best one and it only took 1.25mg to have the desired effects. If I increased to just 5mg my heart rate became too slow, around 28bpm. At 1.25mg I could get my heart rate quite high, but it got there nice and gently. No sudden adrenaline surges caused it to suddenly jump high.
Toprol for me did nothing as far as PVCS go, for me. In fact, it actually made them worse I think. I was switched to Bystolic another beta blocker, that seemed to help more than the toprol. Good luck to you.
I do not engage in cardio exercise as much as I should, I think this would help with the blood pressure but my doctor said I am not allowed to do any exercise other than walking right now due to the rapid heart rate. I was given samples of beta-blockers (Bystolic 10 mg) to take 1 time per day; I have not started them yet- I'm hesitant to take them for some reason.
I used to be very active and the fact I am so limited now, compared to what I used to do, is very frustrating and discouraging. I have had numerous tests done (echo, holtor montior, stress test, nuclear stress test, etc...) and the cardiologist says there is nothing major wrong with me. But something is clearly VERY different than a few months ago. I have an appointment with him again on 8/31...what questions should I be asking him?
Hi all, Sorry for the long 'history' - this is my first post on this board! : ) Been battling PVCs that I know of since 2007; suspected I've had them prior, but just didn't know what they were. Oh to be that ignorant again!! : ) Dx in 2007 from Cardio & EP was "benign, frequent PVCs" and that treatment would be worse than just living with them. So I went on my way, had some off & on, but this winter had a bunch & ended up in ER twice.
Certainly something for anyone whose doc insists on 120/80 to listen to. I'll check out the other two links later. Thanks again.
I'd recommend going back to your doctor to talk about this. Beta blockers slow the heart rate increase in response to exercise, so if your heart rate is in the normal range at rest, you might indeed get some relief from a little dose of something like propranolol. But there are other medications that work for anxiety and reduce both your tension and the awareness of what the heart is doing.
After ondergoing several test I was diagnosed (may 2009) with mild mitral valve prolapse with mild regurgitation. Since then I am on beta blockers, Nebivolol (Bystolic) for tachycardia. before that my resting heartrate was around 80/90. Now my heart rate is around 55-70. After two months of taking the med I am very happy beacuse I do not get the rapid heartrate anymore after eating and my high blood presure is also under control. My message to you is: Do not panic.
I wish I could get over the fear of dying. My life is so limited now compared to what it used to be. I am embarrassed to admit this, but I am afraid to go shopping, afraid to go to the grocery, afraid to go to the mall because I am afraid I will die while my children are out with me and there will be no one there for them.
He is running other tests to make sure that I do not have anti-beta 2 glycoprotein 1 instead of anticardiolipin. Evidently, the test he ran 1st is not a specific test? For some reason, the anti-beta would be worse? I don't really understand all of this. He doesn't seem to think there is a connection between what happened to me (icad) and the antibodies, but there seems to be some research saying that there might be (several journal articles).
My appointment with him is coming up in a couple of weeks and in preparation for that I've been here reading about other people's experiences etc. so I know what to expect and what to ask. I have a husband and two children to take care of and I can't tell you guys what a relief it's been to have some meds to take for now. I can play with the kids, grocery shop, cook dinner...all kinds of things that would "cost me with pain" before!
I am hopeless and this is no way to live. Its good to know that other people feel the same way but frustrating that everyone's doctors dont know what this is!!!
