    The medicine was great for lowering my pressure; however the chest pain I get from it sent me to the hospital several times. I had to stop using the medicine. My chest was tight and heavy.

    In conjunction with Atenolol, this medication definitely made a huge difference. After just two days my whole body seemed to just shrink. The swelling in my feet and ankles disappeared so much to the extent that my shoes are a little loose!The pressure I felt in my chest is gone...It's now been maybe 3 months and am very happy with it.
