 1  High blood pressure Constipation, severe sinus congestion, swelling of feet, knees and hands, water retention, confusion, brain fog, dry skin, hair loss and change in hair texture, dry eyes, anxiety, depression One of the worst drugs I have ever taken. Could never get sinuses cleared while on it. Constant stuffy nose and head pressure. Constipation was horrible. Brain fog and anxiety were debilitating. This drug works on brain function and the effects are scary. Thought I needed antidepressant but anxiety and confusion halted once the drug was stopped. Tried to take several times since I am sensitive to so many drugs. Never again. Has robbed me enough of my life. F 58 7 months

 1  Pregnancy-induced hypertension Managed BP good while pregnant, saw minimal side effects then other than fatigue. DO NOT STAY ON THIS MEDICINE FOR TOO LONG! Was left on it while breastfeeding, have suffered peripheral neuropathy and Parkinson's-like side effects. Muscle weakness, numbness throughout body, could hardly walk for a while. Kept me from losing weight. Can deplete CoQ10, which is important for the body!!! And can lower blood pressure. See the connection? F 27 1 years

ALDOMET  (METHYLDOPA):  This medication is used alone or with other medications to treat high blood pressure (hypertension). Lowering high blood pressure helps prevent strokes, heart attacks, and kidney problems. Methyldopa works by relaxing blood vessels so blood can flow more easily.   (Sources: U.S. Centers for Medicare Services, FDA)
