I have had HBP for my entire adult life. This medication is the only one that can control my HBP with no side effects.

I was diagnosed with high blod pressure about six months ago. Initially, I had some dizziness but that subsided and it definately affected the sex life initially. With changes in diet and a little exercise my blood pressure is now in the normal range- 120/80

This is a very effective drug but I noticed that Express Scripts has removed it from their preferred formulary and recommend Diovan HCT or Hyzaar. I do have some light headed feeling but I don't know what it is related to since I also take some other meds.

Delightfully side effect free! Too bad it is way expensive - hopefully it will go off patent soon. They say December 2012 - oh I hope so!

I have had trouble with various BP meds this is the only one that has controlled my BP. I cannot tolerate Calcium Channel blockers, Beta Blockers or Alpha blockers.

I have been taking Atacand for 5 months now, the early slight dizziness passed quite quickly and now I have no side effects. I am wondering whether it has a detrimental affect on libido though?

My doctor switched me to this medication because my insurance did not cover my previous medication. My blood pressure has been up and down.She told me to keep a chart of my blood pressure and bring it along with my blood pressure machine in with me on my next appointment. At this time she will decide what to do.

Urrinate every 2 hrs. during night. Do I really need the diuretic?
