Reason: hypertension Date: 10 August 2010
Side Effects
muscle cramping, reduced range of motion resulting in jont injury, ( I have fibromyalgia, so I didn't connect the pain to an adverse reaction to the drug.) extreme weight gain ...over 20 lbs, and I never had a weight problem, elevated creatinine level, decreased GFR, elevated A1C with absolutely no famility history of diabetes ... not even the obese people in my family have ever had it , elevated blood pressure when the dose was increased ... hair loss ... scalp, eyebrows, and eyelashes.

Additional Thoughts
It causes more problems than it eleviates. Except for the type 1 hypertension, I was in superior health for my age. I was a competitive natural body builder ... drug free! I'd have been better off with nothing at all.

After the dosage was elevated to 25mg: loss of normal range of motion in limbs, repeated injuries, joint swelling, fluid retension, blurred vision, weight gain, extreme fatigue, elevated A1c level with absolutely no family history of diabetes of any kind over many generations -- even the fat people didn't have it ... elevation in creatinine level and lowered gfr

Additional Thoughts
I wasn't the only person to suffer these symptoms. A friend of mine who sold a drug containing it suffered the same symptoms only worse. She gained over 10 lb of fluid in the short time she was on the drug. I wouldn't take this stuff again if you paid me!
