Comment:
After several years of swelled ankles and feeling like I'm 80 years old (really only 50), several test for Lyme, I read issues online about joint and muscle pain from this drug. Quit taking it and in 4 days started feeling a lot better (joint and muscle pain gone). Wish I would have checked into this sooner.

Comment:
Every day at 5pm my ankles/feet are swollen to the point I have to elevate them. I also have fluttering in my chest that I didn't have prior to taking this medication. It was not very effective at lowering my BP, so I will be going off of this drug.
