Diziness, Heart feels as if it is swelling or tightning up causing breathing difficulty. Also causes pulse to race to the point that I am afraid that I am going to pass out. I have also gained weight on this drug, am tired, short of breath and have a cough that is ongoing. I feel that I do need to get the VA to change this medication.
