User Comments about Moxonidine
20 Jul 2016 Female, 56 y.old. Moxonidine was prescribed to me about 18 months ago because of moderate hypertension. So far, nothing unbearable happened, apart from this cough since three weaks ago. I had many side effects on almost every alternative BP medication (ACE & Ca channels inhibitors, beta & alpha blockers, etc.). I maintan BP now with diuretics only, but it probably soon won't be enough.

13 Jul 2016 Moxonidine is safe and effective and appears to lower both BP and BG Best of all it has no side effects and is cost effective Drugs far more dangerous, less effective and expensive are sold in the USA. Why is Moxonidine not sold here?!?

14 Jul 2016 I am sorry that I have to disagree with you that Moxonodine has no side effects. I was given this medication around 4 years ago to treat high BP. I didn't read the list of known side effects before I started to take. A couple of days after,. I began to shake all over, I was terrified I may be having a fit. I began to suffer panic attacks, followed by anxiety (which I didn't recognise as I have never suffered from it before). I then read the side effects, and these things were listed. The GP took me off the tablet, it does act on the brain I was told. Was only on this tablet for 3 weeks' took me a lot longer to get rid of the side effects. I am pleased for you that Moxonodine had no adverse reaction, but I don't want people to be misguided, it is certainly not for everone as I am here to prove.

25 Oct 2014 While on Clonidine prn plus many others I was having irregular spikes in blood pressure I found that moxonidine was much longer acting and therefore, way less rebound (spiking).

14 Jul 2014 I have to take moxonidine at night because I am so sleepy and dizzy after taking it and could not function if I took it during the day as suggested by my doctor. But it is not controling my high blood pressure. Because I am taking other meds.namely steriods I don't really know what is causing all sorts of problems that I have, one problem is hair loss which I find quite distressing.

14 Jul 2014 the side effects of moxonidine can be horrific, as I found out. it has taken many weeks to recover from it.(See my other comments) I have discovered that a systolic reading of 150-160 over 90 is fine for folk over 80yrs.(from my GP) Can I suggest that farmgirl sees another GP, or if possible change practices Different GPS all have different views on these BP drugs. Moxonidine is a 'last resort' drug for people who can't take other BP drugs. Don't just put up with it--it can make you feel very unwell--good luck---------Freda
