    When I first started using the Labetalol it caused head tingling and extreme tiredness. After a couple of weeks I have started to get used to it and it does not cause the tiredness that it first did, I did discover that if I ate before hand it helped tremendously and I felt much better.

    Only taking 100mg doses. It lowered my BP- however, side effects included tingling of scalp and hands (lessens over time), difficulty concentrating and remembering things, and some difficulty catching my breath. Relieved to see other state they re tired- I am too but did not know that could be from the meds....
