This medication gave me really bad side affects. For one month i had high B/P 199/122. It had never went down to a normal state of 120/76-80. I also had hot flashes 5 to 6 minutes apart. From only the neck and up. It felt like my circulation in both sides of my neck were being cut off. I felt my head Was going to explode. So when I seen my doctor a month after I started this new medication, I told her what I was feeling and she took my B/P it was 199/122. She took me off this medication. ASAP. She wants to see me back in February 23 ,2015. Whom ever is taking this med. please be advised.
