    I just started this yesterday. 250mg 2x daily. I am tired and very sick to my stomach. The pharmacy said to give it a couple of days. I have not called my doctor yet I am still not sure. We are trying to conceive so I was told this is my only route.

    I have been taking Methyldopa for the last 18 months (250mg, 3x/day). I have HBP which is secondary to Polycystic Kidney disease. I started taking it because my partner and I are TTC.
