Are usually post on the anxiety for him but I have a question that needs answering because I am having horrible side effects from this drug I was put on for my high blood pressure. I have been having a huge spike in my anxiety, definite sleep problems where I wake up every two or three hours during the night, increased hunger and weird dreams. I hesitate to call my doctor because I think she will feel I'm just exhibiting my health anxiety but after experiencing these things I've looked up side effects of it and all of them are there. Has anyone experienced these and do you think I should contact my doctor or just suck it up I am hopeful I will become a custom to the drug. I've been on it for over a week and I hate the thought of taking it again today. Any advice you can give me will certainly be appreciated.

Andwes:

You need to call your doctor, plain and simple. They need to know how you are doing on the medication, and if you are having side effects, and whether it needs to be changed.

andwes, Sharon is right. You need to tell your doctor who prescribed it. My husband is on this but doesn't have these side effects. Everyone is different of course. Please call your doctor as soon as you can and tell her what you wrote here. It could be the particular drug, the dosage, the class of drugs, whatever, but you need to talk to your doctor. Also, make sure you are taking it as prescribed.
