    I have only been taking this med for one week but the MD has had to go up from 25mg to 100mg already. His partner said take in AM and am dizzy and sleepy. Going back to night time dosing. So far not happy.

    I started out with 25 mg. and gradually raised to the highest dosage (100 mg) and it did absolutely nothing for my blood pressure - in fact, it actually seemed to raise it a little, I was getting readings around 160/105 which is a bit higher than it was. Too bad it didn't work at all, really no side effects with this.
