For High Blood Pressure: I first stumbled upon this medication while living in Mexico. I had a real bad panic attack from metoprolol that was my high blood pressure medication, I was taking at the time, and the doctor there told me to take captopril. I never felt better and I haven't had a panic attack in 3 years, plus my blood pressure is great.

For High Blood Pressure: I was very happy to find this medicine. It is inexpensive, works well, has been well researched, and has a noted negative correlation with senile memory loss. My impression is that I have good mental sharpness, and I have come to trust it after using it for well over 2 years. (My mother experienced profound memory loss, which she attributed to her blood pressure medicines, so this research was of interest to me). The downside of this medicine is that it must be taken every 8 hours, so it requires better attention, but it works well, so I am fine with that. I did experience the dry cough that many new users are said to experience, and this was a minor annoyance for perhaps the first 5 - 6 months, but it was like a tiny tickle in the throat, very minor.

For High Blood Pressure: This drug was marvellous for controlling my blood pressure when I developed post partum pre eclampsia. Not so good was the side effects which meant I needed to take anti sickness tablets before each dose. Worth it though!
