FAQs

Q. How long does Nebistar take to start working?

After 1 to 2 weeks of starting Nebistar your blood pressure may decrease. However, it may take 4 weeks to see full benefits.

Q. Now that my blood pressure has become normal, can I stop taking Nebistar?

No, you should not stop taking Nebistar even if you start feeling better. Nebistar controls high blood pressure but does not cure it. If you stop Nebistar suddenly, you may increase your chances of having angina, heart attack, or irregular heart-beat. Talk to your doctor who may advise you to decrease the dose gradually over 1 to 2 weeks.

Q. What can happen if I take more than the recommended doses of Nebistar?

Taking more than the recommended doses of Nebistar may cause very slow heart-beat, low blood pressure with possible fainting, difficulty in breathing or shortness of breath, and acute heart failure. In case you take excess of Nebistar, contact your doctor immediately.

Q. Can Nebistar be taken if I am taking ibuprofen?

You have to be careful while taking both ibuprofen and Nebistar and keep monitoring your blood pressure on a regular basis. The reason being, ibuprofen may interfere with the working of Nebistar and your blood pressure may increase. Similarly, discontinuing ibuprofen may decrease your blood pressure. This is usually seen in cases where ibuprofen is used for a longer time.

Q. I am a diabetic. Can taking Nebistar affect my blood sugar levels?

No, Nebistar does not have any effect on blood sugar levels. However, keep tracking your blood sugar levels because use of Nebistar may mask the symptoms of low blood sugar levels, like fast heartbeat and palpitations.

Q. Can Nebistar be given to old age patients?

Yes, Nebistar can be given to patients who are 65 or above, but strictly as per the doctor’s advice. In this patient group, the doctor would recommend to start with lowest dose and gradually reach the desired dosage. In patients who are 75 years or older, close monitoring of blood pressure is required.

Q. Does Nebistar cause weight gain?

No, Nebistar has not been reported to cause weight gain. Talk to your doctor if you experience weight gain while taking Nebistar as it could be due to some other underlying condition.

Q. Does Nebistar cross the blood-brain barrier?

Yes, Nebistar crosses the blood-brain barrier due to its lipophilic nature. Its lipophilic nature makes it capable to combine with lipids and fats. So, it is effective in the treatment of migraine and essential tremors. This could also cause higher chances of central nervous system effects such as lethargy, confusion, and depression.

Q. What is the risk associated with Nebistar if I take it during pregnancy?

Nebistar should not be used during pregnancy since it decreases blood supply to the unborn baby which can result in death of the child in the womb. Decreased blood supply can slow down or retard the growth of the baby and may even lead to abortion or early labor. Inform your doctor that you are using Nebistar if you have become pregnant, so that the doctor can change your medication.

Q. Does Nebistar cause fatigue?

Nebistar may cause fatigue (tiredness) and dizziness. Be very cautious while driving or using any machines or tools. Talk to your doctor if you have these problems while taking Nebistar.
