Areas of application of the active substance Nebivolol

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

Mode of action of nebivolol

Nebivolol is a cardioselective beta-blocker that works exclusively on the beta-1 receptors of the heart when ingested into the body. Beta-1 receptors are special binding sites of the sympathetic fibers of the autonomic nervous system, which are normally activated by the body’s own messengers adrenaline and norepinephrine. Nebivolol displaces these endogenous messenger substances at the receptors and thus suppresses their effect. At the heart’s beta-1 receptors, nebivolol significantly lowers blood pressure while decreasing the number of heartbeats.

Potential Nebivolol side effects may include:

    Nebivolol for High blood pressure

    After a lot of trials with other antihypertensives with serious side effects, that’s my combination now. Even though I do not have a headache anymore (like everybody else), but since I take Nebivolet in addition, strong heartburn that can not be resolved. Does anyone have similar side effects? Difficult to assess which drug is causing this problem. Annoying is of course the extremely high copayment amount of 20, – at Nebilet, because no generic can be delivered.

    Nebivolol for High blood pressure

    Searched for years and now found the right combination: all 1 + 2 drugs divided, 1/2 each in the evening 1/2 each in the morning, nebivolol in the evening – dose 1.25mg (1/4 5mg tablet – acts like a light sleeping pill ). These drugs fit together very well with me, hardly detectable until no side effects !!! Blood pressure very well lowered, on average around 135/75 Also very good half-life of nebivolol and ascalan (about 18-22 hours) The combination is apparently also suitable for diabetics as it lowers blood sugar.

    Nebivolol for High blood pressure

    Shortness of breath, sleep disorders, absurd dreams, tiredness, but no desired effect. I will discontinue the nebivolol (presumably and after consultation with my GP) and switch back to the previous medication (dilemma).

    Side effects: Difficulty in breathing

    Nebivolol for High blood pressure

    My pulse has been dropping to 54 since taking nebivolol 5 mg in the morning. which I think is not enough for me because I have a stature of 132 kg. This is of course marked by dizziness and mild respiratory distress. That can scare you. After a phone call with my family doctor, she said, I should not worry, because a resting heartbeat of 54 in this drug is probably not bad.

    Nebivolol for High blood pressure

    Amitriptyline has been taking 50 mg in the evening for 6 years. I initially had severe drowsiness and dizziness. These then improved after about 8 weeks. Have since gained 14 pounds and water retention. The pain is significantly improved and the RSL is also lower, which generally improves sleep. Unfortunately, the mucosal dryness has now deteriorated to such an extent that I have constant inflammations of the oral mucosa. I tolerate no more dentures (eg bridges). Dentist visits have become unbearable for me. I always have a torn and inflamed tongue. The food intake of some foods is therefore no longer possible. Colds have become significantly worse. I also have laryngitis and several bladder infections behind me. Will probably have to sell amitriptyline.

    Nebivolol for Heart rhythm disturbances

    Since taking the medication steadily gaining weight. Even with an iron diet and exercise, it is very difficult to reduce weight. Edema in the legs. Strong hair loss. Unfortunately it is very difficult to switch from the drug to a non-Bedablocker. After halving the dose renewed tachycardia.

    Nebivolol for High blood pressure

    – strong weight gain after a few months (previously 108 kg now 149 kg after 3 years of ingestion). Ingestion after breakfast. Then dizziness is often associated with blurred vision. Strong edema on the ankles after half a year. Partial breathlessness. But the blood sugar HBA1c was quickly lowered to normal levels. After the discontinuation of Actos 2 weeks ago, the BZ slowly increases from the beginning of 6.4 (morning) to now 12-13 mmol / l (morning) and slowly returns to 8-9 mmol / l until the evening, despite increased insulin doses of Novo. Rapid and Lantus (from 18 to 24 IU per insulin).
