My doctor started me on this Rx 4 weeks ago on the lowest dose 2x a day for high blood pressure. At the time my heart was racing (over 90 bpm), my bp was high (160/100) and I was experiencing palpitations.  After 1 day, my heart rate dropped to a steady 74, and the palpitations eased up considerably. 
I wonder if anyone  here was taking this med and experiences side effects?  if so, what are they?     I feel "weird" but have a hard time describing the feeling. I'm not dizzy but sometimes feel "detatched". Is that what "lightheaded" means?

I do not take this medication however your Pharmacist or Dr. should be able to tell you if your side effects are common for this drug.  Glad to know your BP and HR are within normal range.
