    Comment:
    Hospitalized with acute pancreatitis and they gave me one dose of hydralazine instead of my usual high blood pressure meds. Shortly after receving that one dose, I had trouble breathing, a very congested head and nausea. I never want to see that medicine again.

    I have highly resistant hypertension. I was on valsartan hctz, bystolic,and diltiazem together and still had blood pressure of 175/100. It was not until I added hydralazine 25mg three times a day test my blood pressure wad normalized. My blood pressure is now 110/65. This drug saved my life.

    Comment:
    Every once in a while - about once a month - my BP will spike and I have a terrible time getting it back down again. I have talked to someone else that takes it and she said she had the same problem. I don't know if there is a RX that doesn't have side effects. I would like to find a NAUTRAL CURE for my BP instead of just covering the symptoms (which seems to be all RX drugs can do).

    I have chronic kidney failure and my GFR went from 28 to 19 in about 4 weeks on this drug. If you use it get a blood test!!!!! I checked because I was passing out and weak. Every thing kept spinning.
