    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.

    been taking it about 3yrs. headache when i miss a dose. persistent cough that seems worse but may not be from drug. BP was never that high but was also on the pill. ob-gyn thought i should use other contraceptive she was afraid of stroke, primary doc said there was no problem continuing the pill as bp was under control. who do i believe? i changed my contraception
