    I have been taking this drug for about three months and now I have extreme dry mouth and bleeding gums and pain in my upper thigh. I have also lost weight on it. I really hate the dry mouth and bleeding gums though and wish it would stop.

    I took this drug because my ankles and feet were swollen. I took one dose and was shocked by the time I awoke the next day my feet had gone down half way. I will continue to take it as I have Hypertension. Only drawback is the obvious frequent bathroom trips, but well worth being able to walk.
