10 Mar 2013 I was prescribed this drug for the relief of dribbling incontinence, but have had very unpleasant side effects: urinary frequency and incontinence, nausea, muscle weakness, anxiety. Have taken myself off this drug and will report to my doctor this week.

10 Mar 2013 I suffer from systolic hypertension. Often I feel that I am going to lose balance. I have been put on Calcium channel blocker at first which alone had no effect on pressure and then on (+) beta blocker. This combination caused hypotension. Now I am on Minipres XL(2.5), since the last 3 days. Though the pressure is reduced with the administration of the pill, the tendency to lose balance continues. I am unable to ascribe this effect to high systolic pressure or to the effect of medicine.
