    After taking this medicine for two days I had a severe allergic reaction to it. Within a few minutes of taking it I vomited so violently that all the blood vessels around my eyes ruptured then my breathing became difficult it took 5hrs at urgent care to help me breath and feel better.

    I have been happy with the results, both numbers are lower. However, I have muscle and back pain and a few skin itches in the neck. Bottom line, although it works for me, I am going to make a big effort and loose weight (20 pounds) to stop taking blood pressure medicine. It seems all of them have side effects (I hated the cough from Lisonipril)

    I am on several medications that have the same type of side effects, I switched because of the terrible cough I had from the benazapril, and I am asthmatic. I have terrible itching every day on the neck and upper chest and my face gets flushed and hot. I also take several other meds including psych meds. How the heck am I supposed to know which causes what? How do you know????
