Comment:
This drug did not work at all for me. I began to retain water immediately and gained 3lbs in 3 days and just generally felt poor. Also my bp actually went up while taking it - my diastolic went from upper 80's/90's to consistently over 100! Was switched to something else after only a week - symptoms went away and bp is going down.

Pounding headaches in the back of my head and tightness in my neck. I can sometimes feel my pulse in the muscles of my neck. My blood pressure is down to normal though and as I don't have to se my Doctor for 3 months, I will just continue taking the pills.
