From this study (2 weeks ago):
Took Kirkland Sleep Aid for four consecutive nights. Woke up on the fifth morning with strong heart palpitations every 15 to 20 minutes, which have continued over the past 36 hours consistently. Am now experiencing tightness of chest too.
From this study (3 weeks ago):
My blood pressure is still up. I started taking 2 losartan a day a little over a week ago. Was not having symptoms as bad when taking only 1. Blood pressure seems to come down some with the clonidine. I think the extra losartan has triggered a reaction.
