    I started with 25mg 3x a day, but since hydrazaline did not change my blood pressure from 168-185/85-90, doctor increased the dosage to 50 mg 3x a day. Now my blood pressure hangs around 153/66.

    I was first prescribed the 50mg and my chest felt so tight I had a hard time breathing. (One of side effects). My doctor changed it to 25 mg 3x daily and my BP was steady and where she wanted it to be @ 135/80. I'm happy to say I am well below that and averaging @ 115/70 +/-.
