01 Apr 2016 my blood pressure has been normal since I took Preterax 2.5 mg about 2 years ago. I took one every night. I noticed dark patches in my left lower thigh and the dermatologue reported that it does not concern the skin but is a circulation problem. I do not suffer any way from these patches but I am scared in the long what can happen. The internal medicines specialist did not contest the dermatologue. I am still taking Preterax but am also scared about possible side effects in my kidney as I am told by nurses friends. I am actually thinking how to avoid Preterax without affecting my daily blood pressure rate.
