I was first put on 25 mg but that dropped my BP too low. I got switched to 12.5 and it has worked wonderful! My BP has stabilized and I couldn't be happier! I did experience blurry vision for the first 5 days but that soon cleared up! Very effective medicine! Just be patient. Side effects don't go away over night.

Comment:
I have been on 25mg for 2 years and it was not lowering my blood pressure so my doctor had to precribe me another drug to take with it. I have been experiencing frequent urination, extream tiredness, and sexual problems. I HIGHLY suggest you read a book before considering using this drug.
