    Lowered BP to normal within days. Mild coughing at night, but not constant. Worst side effect was weight gain/ plateau. Have been on weight watchers for a year and was losing @ 1 lb per week, until this medication. Because it lowers metabolism (I think), I have hit a plateau and am no longer losing like I was prior to meds.

    This man-made substance is chalky and hard to swallow, and makes me sluggish and dizzy.

    Am taking 10 mg once a day for BP- it worked okay, taking it down from 160/100 to 130/85. It's been about 6 months now. For me, the occasional cough isn't that bad. My libido seems a little weak however.

    My 75 year old mother began using this medication and after approximately 2 months she suddenly experienced a serious swelling of her tongue and throat. We rushed her to the hospital where she ended up in ICU. Has been difficult reducing the swelling. Very scary.
