What is the most important information I should know about nebivolol (Bystolic Tablets)?

Do not skip doses or stop taking nebivolol without first talking to your doctor. Stopping suddenly may make your condition worse or cause other serious heart problems such as severe chest pain or heart attack. You may need to use less and less before you stop the medication completely.

If you need surgery, tell the surgeon ahead of time that you are using nebivolol.

Nebivolol may impair your thinking or reactions. Be careful if you drive or do anything that requires you to be alert.

Nebivolol is only part of a complete program of treatment that also includes diet, exercise, and weight control. Follow your diet, medication, and exercise routines very closely.

Keep using this medicine as directed, even if you feel well. High blood pressure often has no symptoms. You may need to use blood pressure medication for the rest of your life.
