This Med has not helped lower my blood pressure . My Cardiologigist raised dosage from 5mg to 10mg has not helped.

Comment:
I have been taking 10 mg. per day for about one year. The BP has come down but I am tired all the time. I sleep very well although I have vivid dreams and need to take naps during the day even though I have slept 7 to 8 hours per night. I have always been an active person but I must find an alternative med ication as the fatigue and drowsiness are increasing and are ruining my life.
