Reviews for Methyldopa
For High Blood Pressure: "My doc switched me to it because we're trying to get pregnant, which is a positive thing about the drug. Negative: extreme thirst and facial tics. I was on 3 pills per day and couldn't tolerate the severity of these two side effects so my doc cut me back to 2 pills, which of course isn't as effective but my BP is lower than it would be if I wasn't taking it."

For Hypertensive Emergency: "I used it for my Benign Intracranial Hypertension. My condition improved, however, three days after initiating therapy I experienced metallic after taste. This reaction made me discontinue the medication."

Aldomet (methyldopa) for High Blood Pressure: "I'm sure this medicine has its place in the internist's arsenal BUT UNDER NO CONDITION SHOULD THIS DRUG EVER be prescribed for the elderly. A Board Certified Internist prescribed this medicine (although there are over 100 other alternatives) for my 75-year old mother. Luckily, she is totally competent & in VERY good health. BUT the smallest dose of this medicine did exactly what the manufacturer WARNS ABOUT - dizziness, sleepiness, etc. She wound up falling and the ER doctors who treated her said that if (BY PURE LUCK) I hadn't been walking directly behind her and was strong enough to catch her she would have broken hr femur or hip. This was reported to our State Medical Board and the MD was fully investigated. Within 60 days the license was revoked."
