Caused a bad dry cough

Comment from: thmabz, 45-54 on Treatment for 2-5 years (Patient) Published: May 24

I have a very slow heart beat and so this was the only drug that worked on my HBP without slowing my heart down to where I couldn't even walk. So I have recently recommended it to a friend that was having trouble with her medication. But I am glad that I read these reviews so I can warn her if she starts having any of the side effects I read about here.

I have had no side effects with this medication. It is very effective if you take it correctly.

Best drug in the world. From end stage total heart failure caused by malignant hypertension BP 240/160 to perfect control and good health 11 years later. The cough goes away in a month. Stick w. it, it mixes well w. all other drugs and you can still drink heavily once a week w/out problems. If you get postural hypotension and dizzy spells taking this w. other drugs quit the other drugs first.
