What is the most important information I should know about nebivolol?

What is the most important information I should know about nebivolol?

Do not skip doses or stop taking nebivolol without first talking to your doctor.

What is nebivolol?

What is nebivolol?

Nebivolol is a beta-blocker that is used to treat hypertension (high blood pressure). Lowering blood pressure may lower your risk of a stroke or heart attack.

Nebivolol may also be used for purposes not listed in this medication guide.

What should I discuss with my healthcare provider before taking nebivolol?

What should I discuss with my healthcare provider before taking nebivolol?

You should not take nebivolol if you are allergic to it, or if you have:

  • a serious heart condition such as heart failure, "AV block" (2nd or 3rd degree), or sick sinus syndrome (unless you have a pacemaker);
  • very slow heartbeats;
  • severe liver disease; or
  • if your heart cannot pump blood properly.

Tell your doctor if you have ever had:

  • asthma, bronchitis, emphysema;
  • a heart attack;
  • problems with circulation (especially in your feet and legs);
  • diabetes (taking nebivolol can make it harder for you to tell when you have low blood sugar);
  • a thyroid disorder;
  • liver or kidney disease;
  • allergies; or
  • pheochromocytoma (tumor of the adrenal gland).

Tell your doctor if you are pregnant or plan to become pregnant. It is not known whether nebivolol will harm an unborn baby. However, having high blood pressure during pregnancy may cause complications such as diabetes or eclampsia (dangerously high blood pressure that can lead to medical problems in both mother and baby). The benefit of treating hypertension may outweigh any risks to the baby.

You should not breastfeed while using nebivolol.

Store at room temperature away from moisture and heat.
