My doctor selected this in addition to 2 other BP meds because my dystolic # was still high and because it is supposed to cause a decrease in urine output. I think my urine output is worse, over active bladder, and I see no lowering of my BP. Away with this....also, my edema seems worse. I suppose I will have to stop this one and be lab rat for another one!!!

Comment:
The difference between generic and brand name is mostly in the binders used in manufacturing the drug. Each maker uses their own brand of binder(s), but is mandated to use the prescribed amounts of the actual medicine. That is the ONLY thing that is regulated. Some binders can inhibit the absorption of the medicine. FYI

Swelling in legs, severe headaches on the sides of my head, and did not work on my blood pressure. I doubled the amount to 10mg and it still did not work. I am going to have Dr. take me off of medication. I used the generic.
