just started bp 1st day 201/143 extreme swelling in hands tiredness, 2nd day bp 181/134 hand swelling going down less worried. my weight is 260 planning on quiting smoking and loosing weight 38 years old. will my blood pressure ever go down to normal? will i ever come off these pills? i am really nervous about my health now seeing what a bad heart can do. my father died 2 years ago from blockages. this medication is helping but wish it would bring my pressure down to normal by day 2 lol. a little note: dont go off it when feeling better because when i did my pressure went up and my hands swelled again, i did have once adominal pain and thats why i stopped the meds on my own. i started again and all is ok. i feel better , no headaches, and no more hard breathing going up stairs. i do feel different on this medication. i feel that my heart is being less taxed. i recommend this drug to anyone at this point. i just want to see when my pressure will go to normal levels. hope this helps.

I was severely allergic. Swelling on one side of my throat and feeling like it would burst or I would stroke out. Also very sore back and arm muscles and tired feeling.

no dizziness, only slight problems when I stand up too fast. Blood pressure went from chronically high to consistently perfect! I have more energy now, and feel better than I have in years

My doctor first prescribed 80/12.5 to me. I could barely function, I nearly fainted and felt horrible. I cut it in half and take it at bedtime and feel some better.
