It's taken about 6 months to get my dosage right. I now take 80mg. 3 times a day and the swelling in my ankles and legs is gone. I lost a total of 50 pounds. My B.P. is down to 170/95 from 200/105 and now the doc is starting me on other BP meds for that.

I take 80mg twice a day. A gap of 6-8 hours between doses produces better results. Skipping a dose causes output to drop off. I have no side effects and a lot of my swelling has gone.
