Comments from related studies:
From this study (6 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.
