Tips for Good Reviews
I had been taking Cozaar. But after two years it was no longer effective. I've been on this since 2006 I take this paired with generic norvasc and it brings me down to a perfect 120/80 or lower. I order the generic through a Canadian pharmacy north drug mart.
well my blood pressure was very high,, high enough i thought i would have to go to the hosp. This is the frist time i have every took this drug. Before i took this med my head felt like it was going to pop it was pounding so bad, my face and chest was very red, i was very light headed. I have had a head ach for a week now and nothing was getting rid of it , untill i took benicar. I feel so much better the only thing that i really dont like about this drug is that im very sleepy and im staying tried. im going to just try and take this at night so maybe it wont be as bad. also im very weak!!!
Keeps BP within acceptable range. Occasional dizziness, but passes rapidly. Just been taking a week, but so far, no other side effects.
I'm taking it right now and it workes great for my BP.
Okay, not great This did reduce my BP about 10-20 points. But I didn't feel quite right taking it - just a little dizzy and off. Sleepy in the afternoon sometimes. And getting up too quickly and trying to run off to handle something caused problems - seeing spots and roaring sound. I had to stand still until it went away. It didn't seem worth it, so my doctor tried something else.
