Comment:
I have been taking this drug for about 5 years. It worked well for me. However, lately I am having symptoms that I attribute to the drug. I have extreme-severe swelling in my feet, ankles and hands. I went to my doctor and I'm having a few additional tests performed and if there isn't anything else wrong, I am going to ask to switch to another medication.

Comment:
Pressure was 140/90 before. Hardly came down to 125/90 or so after 5mg for a year. All of a sudden (after a year), I started to have burning and itching sensations on my arms/face/legs and severe constipation. I requested a different drug yesterday and stopped it. Hoping that my rash and constipation goes away.

Comment:
Side effects severe, even after 2 mos. of drug therapy. Heart "pounding", irregular heart rate, and feeling VERY hot. These symptoms seem to occur more so at night and are very bothersome. Dosage reduced from 5mg to 2.5mg after 3 days of 5mg/day dose. Symptoms continue after 2+ mos. of tx at 2.5mg.
