I took this med for about six years, then a new doctor changed it and I had to take something to relieve the asthmatic attacks the new one caused. Eventually I was taking more of each and finally threw them all out for a few years. Kept my BP under control with diet for a few years, then it started to rise again.

Just started this med a month ago. I take half a pill (12.5 mg) a day along with Bystolic 5mg. I have been on HB med for 5 years and have been switched to different meds a number of times. I believe this one is giving me some stomach discomfort. I am trying to get past this, but endurance for me is usually a period of time. We'll see......otherwise my HB is running 135/90.
