    This drug initially was prescribed for my high blood pressure but had a wonderful side benefit of reducing the swelling in my hands and feet. Highly recommend. I have had no side effects.(except of course increased urination)And I have been taking this for over 2 yrs.

    I have been taking this drug for 6 months and anytime I take a hot shower, or go outside on a warm day or do exercises where I start to sweat, I develop itching.The itching is on my back and feels like ants are crawling all over me. I have reduced my daily intake to 1/4 capsule of 75-50 MG.I am going to see the Doctor for a substitute.
