Aldomet question

Hello, I have posted about being on blood pressure medications for some years. I recently went on ALdomet for the blood pressure. It has casued me to sleep about 16 hours out of the last 24. Has anyone else had this symptom from the medication? Additionally, when I am awake I have a headache that is above the left eye. I am hoping this medication works and I don't have any side effects from the medication...my doctor is getting frustrated and I am too. Thanks in advance for ANY information.

Re: Aldomet question

According to reference books the more common side effects of Aldomet may include:
Drowsiness during the first few weeks of therapy, fluid retention or weight gain, headache, weakness. These will supposedly subside as time passes.
Good luck!
