For High Blood Pressure: "The side effects for me were horrible. I experenced joint pain that was a 8-10 on the pain scale, cold chills, lost of hair( came out in hands full & my throid tests were all normal) & it caused me to be fogging in my thoughts & forgetful. I tried it for 2 months hoping that he side effects would lessen; but they got worse. I have been off of it for 1 week & my freinds & husband said they were happy ot have me back to my old self. My BP went up because of the pain."

For High Blood Pressure: "Went to the ER at the local hospital for excruciating back pain, & found my BP to be 213/103 which was enough to have me admitted. Spent 3 days in there, & 50mg twice a day of Hydralazine was one of the meds they put me on. Taking these with a meal, & glass of milk to try to ease the side effects barely helps. I get really drowsy with body aches where I want to take a nap, but can't sleep, & find myself sitting staring at the floor a lot, unable to concentrate, really short of breath to the point where just walking 50 feet becomes laboring. On a positive note my diastolic reading has dropped over 50 points. As for the back pain, I found out a previous blood pressure medicine had drained my body of Potassium, Once my levels were normal the pain went away."
