    Began taking 3 days ago, and the longer I've taken it, the worse my symptoms have become. I've had a headache I can't shake for 2 days straight, my vision is blurry most of the time, and now my heart is about to beat out of my chest, not to mention extremely tired, but unable to sleep.

    I have taken this drug for 7 months. It has been somewhat effective in keeping my BP down.Also taking lisinopril and norvasc.

Spoke to my MD and he has taken me off of it with instructions to watch for any prolonged rise in my BP. I think it is a really harsh medication

    As soon as I started this medication, I had a horrible headache, I couldn't hardly move my head. Then I started running low grade fevers, had body aches, was nauseated and depressed, crying all the time because I could just not function. My doctor finally told me to quit taking this medication and then I found out that one of the side affects is that you have symptoms of lupus. My Mother ha ... Show Full Comment
