Expert:  Dr. Saha replied 1 year ago.
When do you feel the symptoms usually? At night/afternoon/morning?

Since when are you taking Bystolic?

When did you consult doctor last?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.

I have seen a Dr for this and the symptoms start in the afternoon when the blood pressure was high but it's not high with the medicine the symptoms r still there I have been taking bystolic for a week now

Expert:  Dr. Saha replied 1 year ago.
As the systolic blood pressure is still remaining high at night, you can need increase of dose/ addition of other medicines.

Bystolic is usually increased at 2 week intervals.

You have taking it for a week now.

But as your symptoms are continuing, I would suggest to consult doctor again.

You need to have a repeat evaluation earlier.
