Hi Dr Abby
I took my first tablet this morning yes. I have a bit of dizziness, nothing serious but none of the other side effects - just higher blood pressure for some unknown reason!
The blood pressure cuff was purchased on the doctor's recommendation.. it is the same machine as he uses himself and is new, so I would be amazed if it was not working properly. I have to take my blood pressure 3 times a day for the doctor - I take a record in to him once a month. I have taken it more today as I have noticed it going up, but since last November, it has been consistantly *mildly* high. It seems odd that the first time I take the water tablet it goes higher.. I DID read that this can happen in a few cases but you feel this cannot be the case? My last reading was 163/90 - it has fluctuated all day.
