Prescription prices can be steep for those with high co-pays or limited access to health insurance. And, meds that are new to the market, like Bystolic, carry a higher price tag than most. This article provides strategies for how to save on the cost of Bystolic prescription medication.
What is Bystolic (Nebivolol)?
Bystolic (Nebivolol) is a prescription medication for the treatment of high blood pressure and heart failure.
Bystolic belongs to the subset group of medications, called Beta-blockers. A Beta-blocker restricts the production of epinephrine or adrenaline.
According to the Mayo Clinic beta-blockers might not work well in people of "African heritage and older people". This is more likely when a beta-blocker is the primary or sole blood-pressure medication being taken.
If you take any medication to keep your heart rate up, you should not take Bystolic or any beta-blocker. If your heart beats slowly, irregularly, or skips beats, do not take Bystolic.
