Comment:
Prescribed by MD after blood pressure has gone wildly high. After one pill my BP went down but got a roaring headache and feet turned red and swelled up. Can't continue to take it. My Diovan 320 seems to have stopped working for some reason. Taking Clonidine as emergency treatment tho makes me sleepy.

I have been on this medicine for years, the 30 mg. My blood pressure began to go too high so the Dr. put me on 60 mg. Now I have been having nausea and dizziness after breakfast. I didn't think about it being my bp medicine until I read this article.

Comment:
Immediate onset of headaches (and I never get headaches), depressing thoughts (again, never a problem for me), anxious, stressful feelings not previously experiencing.

Comment:
I was put on Procardia in February because of reoccuring blood clots in my hands and feet. It worked great, and no more clots, however, during a 3200 mile road trip, I deveoped severe edema in my feet, ankles and calves. The edema would only partly resolve with elevation of my lower extremities. So unfortunately I had to stop taking the 30 mg tablet daily. Since I tend to only get the blood clots ...
