I have been on Bystolic for high blood pressure for alittle over 1month now. I was having great results until now. Never having any kidney or bladder problems I'm now seeing acute demenished renal output to the point that I'm almost not voiding at all. Should I stop taking Bystolic or keep taking it and see if this subsides? After reading several studies I'm seeing this happen more often with others. What should I do?
