Depends: everyone responds differently to medications. The bystolic (nebivolol) is a b1 selective drug . This limits side effects. The propranolol is a non selective beta blocker. This may be better at lowering blood pressure but may have more side effects. Depends on the patient and different responses to medications,the reason for the switch, the insurance coverage etc .

If you have history of asthma Propanolol will not be a good choice
