My first BP med caused a chronic cough after 1 month, so I switched to this. It worked great on BP but after 2 months I had several frustrating side affects. Dry mouth, weight gain, EXTREME dizzyness when getting up. Sore/stiff lower back when standing up. Stopped taking.

I took this for 5 days, and was so exhausted in the afternoon I could not keep my eyes open. I woke up the 5th night with unbelieveable painful legs, ankle, feet, and toe cramps!!! I started with a cold sore after one day, and it countinued to spread to the entire lips and was only stopped by my taking valtrex!!
