|1||high blood pressure||swelling ankles,headaches,dizzyness, mood swings,hair loss, heavy eye lids a night,shortness of breath at times, vision blurred, itching, lightheadedness.||This is one drug that should be tossed in the trash can forever! it makes a 40 or 50 year old person feel like a 80 or older person ! you have no energy at all, bp goes down but does not hold even with sr types - fades out in the wee hours, and you end up wakeing up with ultra high b.p readings! and some chest pains! I think Doctors should take a step and read the side effects and make sure the paitent can tollerate the medications they hand out so free and easy! its a half assed process with doctors today!||M||54||1 years ||11/15/2009||1||b.p||cant tolerate this stuff! shortness of breath,no power no get up and go!depressed tired lazy feeling cloudy thinking!short term memory loss! dry mouth and dry eye conditions! puke feeling off and on light headed feeling off and on.. panic attacks from this!||and you think beta blockers are bad! these are no better! same crap side effects! waight gain -bloating belly! gas problems, vision blurrs! hair thinning out, throat closes when eatting ? cant poop! bound up on this stuff! heavy cramps in legs and back feel faint on this stuff off and on ! just dont want to move !! im 55 and feel like 155 on this poop ! dont like it at all.. looking into natural meds now !!||M||55||8 months ||7/3/2009||4||High Blood Pressure||Fatigue, dry mouth||It brought my HBP uder control almost immediately (from 180/130 to 120/80), but I am always tired and have dry mouth & eyes.||M||39||5 years ||7/28/2008||1||High Blood Pressure||Hair loss!
