Tough drug for someone this young. It is used for an elevation\alteration in blood pressure, but it can also be used for Heroin withdrawal and to treat migranes. Side effects can be different in each person and slightly based on the diagnosis too. Dizziness, sleep problems, fatigue,bowel changes, rash, itching, slightly depressed state,(not true depression) and changes in heart rate.A slow heart rate is common in younger people.You may or may not have these and many people state they get better with time on the drug. The fatigue or slugishness can last. Is this for high blood pressure? Maybe that is too personal... that's cool! Hope this helped, be well TW
