  • Emma J Sanders on Mar, 12, 2013:

    I am female, 66 yrs old and was living in Las Vegas,NV when my doc prescribed Bystolic for my high blood pressure in Feb/2011. By Feb, 2012, I had an episode of sweating,nausea, cramps, diarrhea and near passing out. Paramedics were call, I was taken to the UMC Emer room. On the 3rd day in the hospital, I was told that the Bystolic I was taking for high blood pressure had weaken my heart to a point that I had acquired A-Fib and that I had to have a pacemaker implanted . WHAT? The cardiologist came in and told me that
    I have a perfectly healthy heart but it was weakened by the Bystolic. 2 days later after having the pacemaker implanted, I had a heart attack. Rushed back to the hospital again. Then I found out that the doctors withdrew the Bystolic without weaning me off of it. Clear warning on medicine bottle, DO NOT DISCONTINUE ABRUPTLY or you could have a ghee art attack. I notified FDA, and the makers of Bystolic (Forest Pharmaceuticals) of my experience. Now I am taking Norvasc. Alone and doing just fine, I have to take aspirin everyday to prevent blood clots because of the pacemaker. Had I died during my heart attack, who would have known that my problem started with the Bystolicd medication.
