  • Effectiveness
    Can't tell (for Support heart health)
  • Side effects
    Moderate (low blood pressure, dizziness with hypotension upon standing)
  • Adherence
    Sometimes
  • Burden
    Not at all hard to take
Dosage: 25 mg-20 mg Weekly
Advice & Tips: Positive effects seem to be that after taking the first 2 pills, my hypertension that was uncontrolled on Maxide, seems to be "cured"! May be a bit low, but prior to 2006, 90's over 50's were my "norm". So, we will see how this works out. I think the dizziness is more attributed to the Klonopin and Lorcet, or possibly the combo of all three.
Cost: < $25 monthly
Side effects: dizziness with hypotension upon standing, low blood pressure
