Medication quickly brought my blood pressure under control, with ONE side effect. NO MORE MIGRAINES!! I've taken this drug for over six months, and haven't had a single migraine since beginning the medication. For the first time in over thirty years, I am free to plan my life and activities, unhindered by crushing, life altering headaches. What a miracle drug this is!
