Comments from related studies:

  • From this study (4 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.

  • I received a one and only injection in March 2013 and am still not sleeping.
    I have tried everything known to man to fix the insomnia and nothing has helped.
    4 seperate doctors, 2 sleep doctors, 3 psychiatrists, 1 sleep psychologist and 8 days in a psychiatric hospital! Nothing helps, I've had every medication known to man and nothing helps!
    I want to die due to this adverse reaction!
