Blurry Vision, extreme pain in legs, ankles and lower back, can't stand moderate heat. Quit taking and side effects are almost gone. Did not really help my BP.

I had a heart (aortic valve) replacement 2-14-14 never could get my irregular heart beat fixed, then a few months later contracted MS. had to have ablation in July 2015, it worked for the problem I had, but my HBP was still sky high. Had to take 3 metropolols every day to keep it down. So my ablation specialist put me on this. The second day my ankles started to swell, but the drug actually worked well up to the point Im at now, not too much, but a little of everthing else for side effects. If my ankles didn't swell, I would stay on this drug, but I am glad I am getting of it. Can't take the swelling feet and ankles anymore, hard enough to walk with MS

Although this medication has lowered my blood pressure as intended, one of the side effects is severe aching bones in my legs. The pain has incapacitated me and I've only been taking it for two weeks now. It did not work at all during the first week, so my caregiver increased the dosage to two capsules per day but I feel the terrible aches in my legs is due to calcium deficiency caused by the drug itself. Can't seem to win here..

Overall,Im pleased with this medication.The occasional unexpected dizziness(slight and ending quickly) has taken a little getting used to ---but Im willing to put up with it for a great blood pressure and pulse rate.The dizziness is unrelated to getting up too quickly.Mine happens when I am standing still--but,as I said,Im willing to deal with it.

I've been on it for years Dr refuses to take me off. It does help my BP but the side effects are not worth it. Dizziness, blurred vision, tired and just don't feel well. Heat really bothers me also!

My only complaint is that it takes so long to take effect and will last only 6-8 hours before the heart rate goes back up again!

Had high BP from sudden weight gain 9 yrs ago. Didn't work very well. Added Quinapril, and BP became controlled. Don't know why DR kept me on it as well. Lost 85 lbs. BP became too low, stopped taking it, take BP daily, BP still below normal 110/70, (Normal - 120/80). Probably time to reduce the Quinapril as well. Initially TAZTIA XT on its own to control BP was not very effective, only slightly.

this has done little if anything for an increased heart rat after being shocked into sinus rhythm in Sept. I've had an alarming weight gain of a pound a week and am itching.
