    My doctors, I am really tired of all of them I go to. All they want to do is shove a damn pill down your throat. Yes, my BP is a little high, Dr. put me on this medication.

    I have been on this drug for 2 months and iHave experienced dizziness, shortness of breath, but most troubling of all is the horrible hair loss. I have lost most of my once very thick hair and I am a female who is devastated.

    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. My main complain is the incessant aggravating cough! In the AMs it's much worse; coughing up gunk and cannot stop until after about 2 hours after I'm up. Dry cough remains throughout the day. Saw doctor and am changing prescription.

    So much better than Metoprolol Succinate I was on for 5 yrs! Lowered numbers, no real side effects until I started exercising more, recently.
