From this study (5 minutes ago):
Hair is falling out, Not growing in well and breaking off
From this study (3 days ago):
Bystolic was effective in lowering my blood pressure. However, this drug has caused HORRIFIC problems for me. I have never had anything affect me so adversely. I believe that at first I was metabolizing it well, but after a couple of weeks I felt poisoned. It has been 5 months since I stopped taking it, and I believe I am finally coming out of it. I curse the day that I was foolish enough to ingest this substance.
From this study (6 days ago):
I have had a miscarriage in April and my DR put me on this to help my period to be regular again but instead my period have been irregular. I have stated taking them in the end of may and now it is the end of July.
