    I have been taking 25 mg of this drug for ~ a year and a half. Initially it helped bring my BP down to a normal level but has lost it's effectiveness.

Initially the first week I would get a little dizzy after intense exercise like a spin class but that went away after a week or so. Now have had no side effects and ... Show Full Comment
