    Took this for about 6 months. Initially started with 10 mg per day. Developed headache and dry cough. Split pill in half thinking half the dose in the morning and half at night would be easier on my system. Headache and dry cough went away. Lowered blood pressure. Then 6 months later I developed headache, dizziness and nausea to the point I could not drive. Had these symptoms for a month while d ... Show Full Comment
