I only stayed on the generic for 3 weeks because I couldn't get past the bad side effects, the worst of which were insomnia, depression, and deeply flushed skin (yes, I'm vain!). My sleep was very shallow, and I would awake every two hours. I never (not once) was able to sleep past 4:30 AM. Maybe I should've given this drug longer, but I'm a teacher who absolutely requires sleep!

Comment:
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!!!
