I definitely have fluid retention in hands, legs, and feet. It keeps the blood pressure down to a degree 130/90 and lower depending on what foods I eat. It has caused significant hair loss. I am trying to go to supplements, diet and exercise. As soon as I find something that works for a day onto a week, I am getting off of this medicine.

Comment:
I have been taking this(60 mg twice a day) for 2 weeks. The doctor took me off Amlodipine because my BP is very high and jumps up and down. Now it is "stable" at about 175/70. I also take Hydralazine 100mg 3times a day, Doxasozin 4mg twice a day and Lasix 20 mg once a day. I am tired all the time, take frequent naps.
