    Cardio Dr. switched me to help with extreme hand pain in the winter from the cold. Takes care of my high b.p. and high heart rate. Works like a charm.

    It definitely lowered my pressure, but the side effects was bad swelling of the ankles and hands. Also caused nightmares. I had to switch to a new drug because the swelling was just too bad.

    Prescribed to take a little pressure off my enlarged heart. Only took one - 120/24 hr with terrible results. Felt terribly weak, depressed and almost unable to function. Never took the second one. Went back to Amlodipine.
