At 10 mg, unbearable. Headaches, high stomach pain, nausea on verge of vomiting all day. At 5 mg, still severely dry eyes and mouth. Stomach pain and nausea resolved after several weeks. Later developed the most horrendous headache ever that lasted most of the day, swelling in sinuses, nose bleeds, fever, and feeling that brain and eyeballs were swelling, sometimes with short bouts of pressure in eyeballs and the inability to focus with my eyes for several seconds. Very good at lowering bp at first, then bp shot up.

Very itchy rash after 6 weeks of 2.5 mg. Still have rash, but not as severe, or frequent, 8 weeks after stopping. It did lower BP, but not worth it with this side effect.

* About FAERS: The FDA Adverse Event Reporting System (FAERS) is used by FDA for activities such as looking for new safety concerns that might be related to a marketed product, evaluating a manufacturer's compliance to reporting regulations and responding to outside requests for information. Reporting of adverse events is a voluntary process, and not every report is sent to FDA and entered into FAERS. The FAERS database may contain duplicate reports, the report quality is variable, and many factors may influence reporting (e.g., media attention, length of time a drug is marketed, market share). For these reasons, FAERS case reports cannot be used to calculate incidence or estimates of risk for a particular product or compare risks between products.
