Started taking when I was in my 20'sfor rapid heart beat. Am now 75. I've never had any side effects. I have tried to stop taking it but the rapid heart beats come back. So I continue to take it. Kinda like "if it ain't broke don't try to fix it"

I was prescribed this medication to hel lessen the number of times I wake up with migraines. 200mg wasn't enough so I'm going up to 400mg. I take it at night so hopefully there will be no negative side effects because I have naturally low blood pressure.
