    Always

    Not at all hard to take
Dosage: 10 mg Daily
Advice & Tips: I stopped because my blood pressure was readings were coming up lower than usual. Since I stopped my readings have been great. I experienced no side effects that I could tell. I take many other meds so it was very easy for me to remember to take this as prescribed. Good luck to you all in the future and I hope you all have the same positive results that I have with it.
