I never had the blood pressure effect, and I'm not sure how dose-specific the neurological issues are, but believe it or not, I was on it 3+ years and never had any problems at all. I went off (well before I had my surgery) because I never thought it made much difference. It is true that it can cause some neurological tics, but I suspect lowest doses are not as likely to cause problems.
