A 55-year-old male asked:
is it advisable to stop 5 mg bystolic (nebivolol) abruptly. if you need to wean off it, how long.

Not advisable: Sudden cessation of therapy with a beta blocker like bystolic (nebivolol) can lead to a withdrawal syndrome including elevated heart rate and blood pressure as well as unpleasant feelings. Whether this is dangerous or merely unpleasant depends upon why one is taking the drug in the first place. I do not recommend discontinuing this drug except under your doctor's supervision.
