I've only been on it for 4 days but feel pretty lightheaded. Doctor says wait another 4 or 5 days to see if it subsides.

Grinaldi, the suggested therapeutic response is usually 1-2 weeks. If there is no decrease in b/p by then, most doctors will re-evaluate. I'd also add that you shouldn't stop taking bystolic abruptly either; you have to taper off of it or it could cause severe cardiac reactions. Hope this helps.

grinaldi being lightheaded is no fun. My experience has been to take a deep breath and let it out before I stand up. (Myself, the negative reaction to Bystolic might have had more to do with the sudden stop of Diltiazem.) At any rate please listen to your body and call your Doc. if ur sympt. continue after day 10. Hope you feel better soon.
