Comment:
I'm 59 yrs old and have been on Marcardis for over a month and have experienced 20 of the 47 listed side effects and most of the others require a blood test. Everyday I became more and more sick and my blood pressure dropped to 66/106 and my level of energy went away. I stopped taking it.

Took it for 4 weeks. It lowered my BP but I couldn't tolerate the side effects: Extreme dizziness, aching neck, shoulders and back, leg cramps and eye strain. I am now trying a different class of medication.

Comment:
I have taken this for a month now and my BP is still 160/106. I have had no muscle aches but I supplement with potassium pills. I have been tired a lot, and thought maybe I was catching a cold but reading reviews it may be the meds, I have a hacking cough.
