I had tried 5 other high blood pressure medicines and Atacand HCL is the only one that seems to work.

Been on Atacand HCT for over 5 years and has controlled my bp 120/80. Had to switch to Hyzaar due to insurance company switch and it's not on their preferred drug list. Atacand is very pricey but may be worth the high cost. Hyzaar appears to be a problem for me (joint pain)and since i have RA, the joint pain is much more pronounced!Will have to switch back to Atacand.

I have been taking this med for 3 weeks, it has lowered by Bp to 108/62. I feel weakness, dizziness especially when I stand up quickly. I see my doc in one week for 4 week follow up, hopefully side affects will subside.

I have been on this medication for several years. It has been so effective that I have not gone to anything generic (Atacand does not have a generic yet), even with no insurance and paying $90.+ for a month supply. No side effects. It's great.

Comment from: Lou, 75 or over (Patient) Published: January 27

This has been a very effective drug for my blood pressure, but the cost is prohibitive on us being retired, the cost of $270.94 for a 90 day supply is much higher than we can afford. Is there another medication which will be as effective?

This is only the 2nd medication I have taken for high blood pressure. I started on the Atacand only and switched to Atacand/HCT. After one day of slight drowsiness, I have felt NO complication or unusual effects other than a consistent 120/80 BP. This is an amazing drug-no nitceable bad effects and has not impaired sexual performance as other BP meds do. Strongly recommend (I am in my mid 40s).
