    Have been taking this drug for a month. I went from 100mg to 200mg t0 300mg, and am now on 400mg twice a day. This med does not seem to be lowering my blood pressure. Also I have gained 5 lbs. and feel tired.

    I only took one 200 MG tab and experienced alot of side effects such as chest pains, shortness of breath, face turned red and puffy, pains in right arm, head tingled, dizzy, felt heart beat in my head and had a terrible head ache. Had to stop after one pill. Bp went up instead of down.
