Before I started taking the medication, my blood pressure was extremely high. I didn't exercise much and I am was over weight. At my doctor's orders, I began taking the medication and it took a while to take effect, but when it did, it has and still continues to keep my blood pressure within the normal range. I continue to be over-weight, and I only exercise minimally, but everyday.
Same here with the numbness in the arms. It has helped my blood pressure, but I like the numbness. Also, feel very lethargic since I started taking.
lowered blood pressure but my hands started going to sleep at night and when on computer. Dr. said it may be carpel tunnel, but in both hands? and right after increasing Zebeta? still researching.....
Have had no side effects from this drug. Has worked well for me in combination with other medications.
Taking only 2.5mg for almost a yr. now for slightly high BP & palpitations and works very well for both. Too bad I have to cut the tablets for this dosage as they're not available at that lower strength. Taking at bedtime greatly helped with tiredness /dizziness.
Has helped my blood pressure and in regulating my heart rate. The generic didn't work well for me. I had to switch back-so I pay the higher price. I too have experienced tingling in hands and toes at times.
I have taken the .5 mil now for 2 years and it has worked very well for me. So far, I have not had to raise my dosage. One thing that seemed to be very helpful, I take this at night before I go to bed, so I do not notice any dizziness etc. Blood Pressure is pretty stable, and heart rate is very good as well.
Overall this drug has been a net positive for me. It has effectivly controlled my heart palpitations, which got up to 170-200bpm. It has allowed me to cardio exercise (run/jogg)for the first time in a year. It has not significantly lowered my high blood pressure.
SIDE EFFECTS: I have had noticible numbness/tingling in my hands and toes, occasionally spreading to forearms even rarely my face.
-Tired and lightheaded occasionally.
