I was using Zivaste E 20 but the same is not available here in Hyderabad so I tried Tonact 20 EZ and the result was a loss of blood pressure resulting in almost hospitalization. I had severe reeling sensation and also pain in the entire body and heaviness of the chest. What should I do? Will you please reply to me? It is URGENT.
