Comment:
As a lupus patient this medication caused a severe flare-up of bone, joint, and muscle pain (particularly in my legs), as well as major swelling in my hands and feet. BP increased on this medication. Required increasing Prednisone and Tramadol to deal with symptoms. Not good! Stopped taking hydralazine after 3 days.

Comment:
Worst headache I've ever experienced. BP registered 187/120; pulse 117. Thought I was dieing. I took Tylenol for the pain and cried myself to sleep. Praying the whole time for GOD to take the pain away!!! BP is now 133/78 but still getting the headaches along with srthritis syptoms. Will not continue to take this med. Would rather deal with the drowsiness of clonedine.
