How does bystolic (nebivolol) beta-blocker help your blood pressure?

How does bystolic (nebivolol) beta-blocker help your blood pressure?

Multifactorial: Beta-blockers are felt to reduce blood pressure by lowering heart rate, and hence reducing the total amount of blood pumped into the circulation per minute (lower heart rate = less pumps per minute). This cardiac output (blood flow into circulation per minute) is a main determinant of blood pressure. Bystolic (nebivolol) also dilates artery walls, via something called nitric oxide, which enhances BP lowering. ...Read more

Blood Pressure (Definition)

Blood pressure is a measurement of the force placed on the blood vessels and is comprised of the "systolic" pressure (the top number on a blood pressure meter) which is the peak pressure when the heart is pumping, and the "diastolic" pressure (the bottom number on a blood pressure meter) which is the pressure during the resting phase ...Read more

Not right for you?: Bystolic (nebivolol) may not be the right blood pressure medication for you. Any side effect is theoretically possible for any medication given the variability of human physiology. Beta blockers, of which bystolic (nebivolol) is an example, sometimes have "odd" side effects in some patients. Sometimes the effects resolve by themselves with continued use, but sometimes they don't. Talk to your doctor for options. ...Read more

On bystolic (nebivolol) for high blood pressure and b/p got to 100/45. Pulse-70. Is this to low? I skipped it today and it still remained low. Do i take it today?

Low BP: If you are feeling lightheaded or dizzy then perhaps the blood pressure is too low for you. You may need a lower dose of bystolic (nebivolol) especially if your BP remains low despite skipping a dose. Keep checking your BP and heart rate twice daily and talk to your doctor whether or not you should continue bystolic (nebivolol). ...Read more

See your doctor soon: Sounds like you may be on too high a dose of medication or something else is going on. Get in to see your doctor as soon as you can. Bring your blood pressure cuff readings and the cuff itself to check against the reading in the doctor's office. If you're having chest pain or pressure or if you're having difficulty breathing, get to the emergency room. ...Read more

No: If no symptoms would check the BP again and keep a log. I would also take my home blood pressure cuff to my dr and make sure its accurate and im using it right. Dont stop the medication without talking to your dr. ...Read more

I have an irregular heart beat . Blood pressure is normal most of the time . My HB is always at 76 and higher . I was prescribed 5mg of Bystolic (nebivolol) . ?

I have an irregular heart beat . Blood pressure is normal most of the time . My HB is always at 76 and higher . I was prescribed 5mg of Bystolic (nebivolol) . ?

Need clarification: Don't know what HB always 76 means? Would be helpful to know if your physician diagnosed what type of irregular heart beat you were having? Two common types of "skipped beats" would be premature atrial contractions(PAC's) and premature ventricular contractions(PVC's). PAC's are considered harmless. PVC's can be present in normal patients, but sometimes are a sign of underlying heart disease. ...Read more

Blood pressure 110-130 / 52-65 shall i worry? I take 1.25mg beta blocker daily dosage for the last 6 months. I'm worried about my diastolic readings

Why?: You're not a collection of numbers. "low blood pressure" is a fad diagnosis that most scientific physicians reject. I'd be very pleased with these numbers especially if you're under treatment for hypertension. ...Read more

The mechanism of action for blood pressure control is not definitively established but is related to the drug decreasing the heart rate, decreasing heart contractility, and blocking the effect of Adrenalin on the blood vessels. ...Read more

What type of high blood pressure medication would be best to combine with beta blocker?

What type of high blood pressure medication would be best to combine with beta blocker?

Just about any: We often combine beta blockers w/mild diuretics, ace inhibitors, arb, ccb, etc. Many patients need 3 or more BP lowering medications to achieve their goal bp. It's just a matter of choosing a drug from each class, looking for secondary gain if possible, while avoiding side effects. Diuretics are good if you have swollen feet. Ace inhibitors & arbs protect heart in CHF & kidneys in diabetcs. ...Read more

Which type of high blood pressure medication would be best to combine with a low dosage of beta blocker?

Which type of high blood pressure medication would be best to combine with a low dosage of beta blocker?

Any: The low dosage of beta blocker would not especially influence my choice of a second agent except for the fact that medications like verapamil or Diltiazem also slow the pulse as does the beta blocker. So one would want to make sure that the beta blocker has not significantly lowered the pulse. ...Read more
