    I persisted with this drug for 3 years,through bouts of flue like symptoms and diarreah and it made not the slightest difference to my blood pressure which has always been 140/90.As soon as I stopped taking it the symptoms stopped.I take nothing now and blood pressure is still 140/90,the only ones unhappy are the CEOs of the drug companys.
