 3  Raynaud's syndrome dizziness, severe headaches 1st script from Walgreens was a harder pill & side effects were manageable. Refill from Rite Aid was a softer pill which I had to stop taking after a week of a constant headache and being unable to walk immediately after taking it due to the dizziness. It does work incredibly well to relieve swelling of the extremities. F 40 45 days
10 MG 2X D

 4  Hypertension Shaking, dizziness, nausea, sometimes extreme fatigue, constipation. I was prescribed this for pregnancy-induced hypertension that didn't resolve itself after delivery and has since become permanent. At first, my hands would shake so bad I couldn't hold on to anything. This, fortunately, has subsided and only happens once in a great while if I don't eat after taking it. I still get dizzy if I get up quickly or move around too fast suddenly. The constipation is awful, but I've made it significantly less by taking fiber every day. The fatigue sometimes, however, can be a nuisance. On the positive side, it has lowered my blood pressure significantly, and I'm still on a small dose (10mg 2x/day). F 34 4 years
