Nebilet contains the active substance Nebivolol. Also note the special effect of Nebilet .

Nebivolol is used to lower blood pressure in high blood pressure and normalize blood pressure over time.

Since June 2006, the drug has also been approved for the treatment of mild and moderate chronic cardiac insufficiency. This mainly affects older patients over the age of 70 who use the drug in addition to standard therapy.

For the following application areas of Nebivolol , in-depth information is available:

  • Hypertension
  • heart failure

Please also read the information on the drug groups beta-blockers, antihypertensives, to which the active ingredient nebivolol belongs.

Areas of application according to the manufacturer’s instructions

  • Hypertension with no apparent organic cause
  • Stable mild and moderate chronic myocardial insufficiency, in addition to standard therapy in the elderly (around 70 years old)


The tablets contain five milligrams of the active ingredient nebivolol and are in quarters. Thus, a very careful dose adjustment can be done.

Adults take five milligrams of nebivolol (one tablet) daily, alone or in combination with other antihypertensives. The hypotensive effect becomes apparent after one to two weeks of treatment. Occasionally, the optimal effect will only be achieved after four weeks.

For patients with renal impairment and patients over the age of 65, the recommended dose at the start of treatment is 2.5 milligrams of nebivolol (half a tablet) daily. If necessary, the daily dose can be increased to five milligrams (one tablet).

Chronic Myocardial Insufficiency
The treatment of stable chronic myocardial insufficiency must be initiated at a slow dose setting until the optimal individual dose for long-term treatment is achieved. In any case, patients should have been well-blessed in the last six weeks before the start of treatment. The dosages of the other medicines used for cardiac insufficiency must have been stable during the last two weeks before the start of treatment.

Treatment begins with 1.25 milligrams of nebivolol (a quarter tablet) once daily. At intervals of one to two weeks, the dose may then be increased to 2.5 milligrams of nebivolol (half a tablet) once a day, to five milligrams once a day and then to 10 milligrams (two tablets) once a day. 10 milligrams of nebivolol also represent the maximum daily dose.

Preferably take your dose of the drug at the same time each day. The tablets can be taken with meals.

    Bystolic for High blood pressure

    I take 2.5g Nebilet (1/2 tablet) daily – my blood pressure and heart rate have normalized in no time. In the summer of 2007 hospital stay because of the values 220/120 pulse 130 – then took the use of Nebilet, after some time I was able to reduce to a 1/2 tablet. My values are 130/85 pulse 75 … Unfortunately, about 3 weeks after the onset of the following adverse reactions: pressure in the right upper abdomen (oB after CT and colonoscopy), bronchi are always problems, blurred vision times more and less my feeling in the abdomen is severely impaired!

    Bystolic for Heart rhythm disturbances; High blood pressure

    I take Paroxate 10mg for 2 months with the following initial side effects: fatigue, loss of appetite and nausea in the first 2 weeks, then excessive appetite and rapid weight gain, in the first 4 weeks of morning inner restlessness, hands and legs shaking, since the 2nd week at night and in the morning when waking up a queasy feeling with upper abdominal pressure with panic, as if I was slowly awakening from a fainting. When I get up, that feeling disappears. Now after 2 months, my initial fears have not completely disappeared, but I dare to go shopping alone again and move farther than 5 kilometers away from my place of residence. I took Paroxate for 41/2 years 6 years ago, However, 20 mg per day, and have no more fears, only I am 25 kg heavier. However, I did not have any of these side effects at the time. Now I do not dare to increase the dosage to 20 mg, because this unpleasant waking may then be intensified. By the way, when I had a 1 1/2 year paroxet break, I lost another 15 kilos without dieting. MICARDIS 80 mg side effects: irritating cough in the first few weeks, sweating NEBILET 2.5 mg side effects: itching and redness on the eyelids, water retention on the face

    Bystolic for Heart rhythm disturbances; High blood pressure

    Hello dear patients! Have every day, usually up to 5 times a day, take Tavor until Cymbalta worked properly. Had feared by the many ingestion of Tavor because of a dependency. I had no side effects from Tavor. When I realized that Cymbalta is starting to work, and I noticed that only one evening, I was glad that I managed the first day without Tavor again. I had no withdrawal symptoms. Now I need the highest 1 Tavor of all 14 days. A huge step forward for my health! I wish all patients all the best and a lot of health with the best no side effects !!! Annett

    Side effects: No side effects
