Hytrin was the first blood pressure medicine that worked for me, without unacceptable side effects. The generic is extremely cheap, too--$4 per month at WalMart without even using my insurance.

I used Hytrin 10 Mg for a period of 3 months for high blood pressure. At first I was very satisfied with it, however after approximately 1 month of use I was constantly fatigued, with body aches and nasal congestion. It made breathing at night very difficult and getting out of bed in the morning very painful. Sexually my erections were very limp, hard to maintain and my drive was greatly diminished. Even Viagra was less effective while taking Hytrin. One strange side effect for me was a very noticeable change in the relaxed state of my scrotum and penis. Both of them sagged considerably more while taking Hytrin, to the point of it being somewhat uncomfortable due to the amount of sag. I have since stopped taking Hytrin due to these side effects, and I feel lots better!
