    I have been taking this for 4 months. Started having kidney and lower back pain right away. Became worst with time. Doctor put me on pain pains for the back and muscle relaxer. Stopped taking the medication a week ago and no more back or kidney pain.

    I've only been taking this drug for a few months, but I've began to notice hair loss. I don't like that, what should I do. Is there a vitamin that I can take to prevent the hair loss?

    This medication makes me sweat profusely! My BP is sometimes good and at other times not so good. BP is very inconsistent with this medication. The water pill additive in this med also makes peeing an every hour thing! I've been on this stuff for over 10 years and do think my body is used to it already and basically rendering it ineffective. Maybe time to ask for a change!
