25 Sep 2014 I use 2mg Preterax + Indapamide 0.625mg (this is what is written on the box) I feel it could be more effective in keeping my BP normal, sometimes is would increase the dosage for greater effectiveness. My left ankle and calf are swollen all the time, but not sure if Preterax is responsible for swelling. I think the medicine is more positive than negative

12 Jun 2013 I have been taking Preterax for over 9 yrs. I am very impressed with this medication's effectiveness in managing my hypertension. I have not experienced any negative side effects at all. I have noticed one positive side effect; I often make presentations to large audiences. Prior to taking Preterax, i would always have some level of 'nerves' when starting these presentations. When using Preterax, I have NO 'nerves' associated with these. This is a very good medication.
