I had wondered why my hair was falling out, chronic back pain and general lethargy.

Took this for years, worked great. Now can't afford it, the generic is over $100 so can't take that. No luck so far finding a replacement. HP is back.

Comment:
Have taken this for years with no problems. It was recommended to me by a pharmacist friend after encountering issues with other blood pressure medications. Was recently switched to Valsartan (generic)and began to experience random dizzy spells.
