I am an 58 year old female with high blood pressure. I currently take Amlodipine 5mg and Tekturna 150mg to control my BP, which averages 125/80 to 130/85. I also have a history of irregular and skipped heartbeats, and recently I experienced an episode of atrial fibrillation (170 bpm), which the hospital ER stopped with Cardizem IV. My cardio doc now wants me to add 5mg Bystolic to my BP medicines to slow my heart rate and help avoid other a-fib events. However, I have read in Bystolic warnings that you should not take it if you have irregular/skipped heartbeats. Yet, I have read reviews in Drugs.com from others with irregular heartbeats who are on Bystolic. What do you think?
