The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) announced that Bystolic (nebivolol; Forest Laboratories) 20 mg is currently in shortage.
Bystolic 20-mg tablets in 30- and 90-count bottles are currently unavailable and backordered due to a manufacturing delay based upon commercial stability data. The estimated duration of the backorder is 4 to 6 months. However, Bystolic 10-mg tablets are available to cover the demand for the 20-mg tablets.
Bystolic is a cardioselective beta-blocker indicated for the treatment of hypertension in adults aged at least 18 years. In addition to the 10-mg tablets, it is also available as 2.5-mg and 5-mg tablets.
