Comment:
Took 20 mg for 1 year. Have only been able to get BP down to around 155/84. Made me so tired needed to take at bedtime. I also always have some slight swelling of hands and around eye area. Stopped taking and tried other BP meds but now back on Accupril as side effects on other BP Meds worse. Back to square 1 now.

Effective in controlling my BP with another BP med at bedtime. However after 1 1/2 years of a chronic cough my doctor said that accupril can cause a cough after taking for a number of years. years and another BP med at bedtime. My cough disappeared when stopping accupril.
