Re: Need Advice For Transitioning Off Beta Blocker

UPDATE: Weaning process off of Bystolic going well. Blood Pressure last night was 129/73. This morning I took it 6 times in a row per an article I read from one of the medical clinics--dumped the first reading (which really wasn't bad-141/79) and averaged out the remaining 5 readings which were 137/77;134/78; 134/75; 127/73 and 125/74 (pulse on all readings was between 59 and 60). the average reading for the 5 was 131/75 which was pretty good considering its usually a little higher in the mornings.
Tonight is a "skip a pill" night and so far so good.
Thanks-
