04 Jul 2010 This drug is efficient on my high blood pressure, despite of its side effects.

20 Mar 2009 I am only taking Adalat because I am still nursing my daughter - as soon as she is weaned, I am going back to Micardis. Adalat is awful for me. My legs and feet turn bright red and feel really warm, plus I have a sense of dizziness, and it is hard for me to function normally. I would not recommend this drug, unless you have no other choice.

23 Feb 2009 The only difficulty is if I miss even one dose then when I take the next dose I have a really bad headache. I try not to use them in the summer but sometimes I have to continue using them even in warm weather.
