Took this pill the first day and later I started shaking all over and broke out in a cold chill. I called my pharmacy because the office was closed he advices me to stop the pills and call my doctor. I was still sick for four days and I lost 9lbs in two days. After going to the ER I was told that this pill took to much fluid out of my body and my potassium was low. This pills it's for me. Yes ...

Lowered my blood pressure to normal levels. With the exception of making me tired the first week or so of starting the meds, I haven't had any side effects.

Comment:
Very effective in dropping blood pressure to 115-125 range. 100mg made me too drowsy; dropped to 75 mg (1 50 and 1 25 mg). I take it before bedtime. Caution: I started taking Meloxicam for leg pain and became severely dizzy after taking it for two days.
