Brief Answer:
There are no over the counter substitutes!

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

I have reviewed your information fully. Unfortunately, there are no over the counter substitutes for Bystolic. I will suggest that you strongly talk to your physician to authorize refills and you should be able to monitor and ask for renewals well ahead of time before the stock expires.

Also, can you again call his office to request for a minimum stock that would allow you to continue taking the drug until you get to the appointment?

I wish you well. Keep me updated!
