    50 mg daily - excellent at controlling my BP. But after about 6 months of gradual weight gain (10#, in spite of no change in diet), constant sleepiness, insomnia and fuzzy head/memory issues. I also have a chronic cough and experiencing rapid heart rate and trouble breathing upon exertion. Going to see doc in a few days for new RX.
