 1  Hypertension For two years, I've felt like I don't give a S**t about anything, and thought it was menopause related. At doc last week and BP 170/86. Says we'll add Norvasc and mentions that the BetaBlocker really slows down your heartrate. Asked if that's why I'm tired and don't care about anything, because I was certain it was my hormones. Have been taking Norvasc along with Labetalol for 8 days, and I feel like myself again, lost 7 pounds, wanted to go hiking and clean my house. It's been a dump for two years and I couldnt stand that it didn't bother me. It wasn't hormones, it was Labetalol! F 50 2 years

 1  hyptertension I took medicine for about three weeks several months ago and experienced horrible hallucinations. Later, I was taken off the prescription and given something else. Recently, I was prescribed the medicine again and have taken it for only about 14 days. Again, the horrible hallucinations occur. I also have difficulty sleeping and have become fearful. The medicine, however, is effective in reducing the blood pressure. M 60 14 days

 1  hypertension; palpitations Tingling in scalp--almost a burning sensation; dizziness; upset stomach; muscle pain; extreme fatigue; unexplained weight gain...increased after first week. My doctor wisely started me on the lowest dose--50 mg twice a day--to supplement Diovan since I was having frequent palpitations. On the fifth day, my scalp began tingling oddly and it hurt to touch my head or comb my hair. I had muscular pain in both arms and some nausea and discomfort in my stomach. I was tired all the time--occasionally dizzy--affecting my work. My doctor told me to stop immediately, stating that some people cannot tolerate beta blockers. I will be starting a new drug this week to address the palpitations. the side effects would seem to outweigh any benefit of this medication. F 56 2 weeks

 2  Hypertension Dry Ejaculation With0ut BP 210/110, with 110/70. Does cause adverse sexual side effects with me. If you are active, I am married, it is a real bummer. Other HBP medications that affect can effect potassium I can't use, so I live with the labetalol. M 44 1 years
