I started methyldopa a while ago as cant take ramipril (allergic) and other anti-hypertensives (react with my allergy meds)
Since starting it I feel tired, have headaches, have postural hypotension and worst of all my legs and back hurt all the time - ? myalgia?
Anyone else experience the myalgia?

I realize that - its the myalgia that's worrying. Headaches and the lethargy I can cope with, but the painful legs and back all the time are making me think of coming off it (after discussion with my doctor of course)
Exactly what I was thinking but we are running out of drugs to try
I've checked the info on this site and very useful thanks!
And because I carry adrenaline for anaphylaxis (severe allergies) he wont prescribe Beta blockers.
I have been taking bendrofluazide 2.5mgs for a few years now with limited effect.
Sorry its not working for you Mrs O - maybe back to the doctors for you too?
Others seem to have so many horrible side effects.
I decided to persevere with it and see if the side effects lessen.
I think I can cope with it, but if not I will certainly discuss alternative meds with my G/P.
Your reassurance was very much welcomed
