 3  hypertension felt lightheadedness,dizziness, and balance problem most of the time.had difficulty in breathing like asthma.always feeling tired and sleepy, tingling in both hands and feet.had some skin rashes. had tinnitus from time to time.feeling depressed and anxious. has improved somehow my blood pressure, but benefits outweighted the side effects which are devastating.i am taking it with bisoprolol by the way, which may add also to the side effects!if not lessened, will ask my doctor to change or switch to other drug.

 3  HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE BLURRED VISION AND HARD TO FOCUS MY EYES FATIGUE, JOINT AND MUSCLE PAIN. PAINS IN LEGS, LOWER BACK, HIPS. SWOLLEN ANKLES AND ALWAYS TIRED AND NO ENERGY TO DO ANYTHING. I ALSO HAVE DEPRESSION WHICH I DON'T KNOW IF IT IS FROM THE MEDICATION OR JUST BECAUSE OF THE OTHER SYMPTOMS. THIS MEDICATION I SUPPOSE HELPS SOMEWHAT. MOST OF THE TIME NOW MY TOP NUMBERS OF MY BLOOD PRESSURE ARE GOOD, BUT I HAVEN'T SEEN MUCH IMPROVEMENT WITH THE BOTTOM NUMBERS. HOWEVER, IT DOES HELP WITH MY PALPITATIONS AND EXTRA BEATS. BUT I WOULD RATHER HAVE A MEDICATION THAT CAN HELP MY BLOOD PRESSURE AND NOT CAUSE ME TO HAVE ALL THESE OTHER SYMPTOMS, BECAUSE THESE OTHER SYMPTOMS REALLY INTERFERE WITH YOUR DAILY LIFE AND YOU NEVER REALLY FEEL WELL.

 2  Hypertension I have been experiencing back pain, afternoon fatigue, some visual blurriness but most importantly it has altered my mood. I'm depressed and I have a short fuse on this medication. I've only been on it 25 days and this is the only new medication I'm taking. I will have my doctor prescribe something else in a couple of days when I see him. M 40 25 days

 5  High Blood pressure None, that I know of. Sometimes I take a nap in the afternoon and I belive it's just from a busy day and being 60! I am a diet & extersize controlled diabetic, who is off diabetic medication after 14 years and 70lb weight loss. I feel great. At our town arts & craft fair some of the doctors in town set up a booth to take blood pressure and a doctor (who I did not know at all) told me there are many good things in blood pressure pills that keep us healthy and he hoped I would never go off them, which at the time was my goal.

 2  High Blood Pressure This medicine did not work for me. I had a chemical imbalance while only on it for three weeks. It had my hair coming out by the combs full. After I stopped taking the drug my hair eventually stopped coming out after about a month or so. I was on 300/25mg. I was also taking Sular extended release 10 mg along with it. Prescribed by my doctor. I had a very fast heart beat from the beginning to the end of taking the drug. I also had break outs in my chest that left scars. I don't want the experience of taking this drug again. I had three major side effects. F 51 3 weeks
