Blinding headaches, super-rapid hard-pounding heartbeats. Insomnia. When I could sleep, vivid nightmares. Twinging pains in my neck/head. Odd pulling sensation in my brain. I'd lie in bed afraid the next beat would be the last. This had the exact opposite effect that it should have. My BP never went below 170/100 and would actually go UP when I took the meds.

From day 1 that I took this medication I was extremely ill. I felt like I had the flu. As soon as I came of the medication I started feeling back to normal. I experienced terrible side effects with this medication. Make sure your Dr educates you fully on what the side effects can be.

I keep getting sinus headaches

Comment from: masty, 75 or over Female on Treatment for 6 months - 1 year (Patient) Published: November 22

My blood pressure was in the range of 140 to 150 over 85 to 90 using my old medication. Since taking Azor my blood pressure has come down to 120 to 130 over 70 to 80, however if I continue taking my pill every day, my pressure drops drastically, as low as 80 over 60. This drop has me really concerned and if I don't take a pill for three or four days, my pressure will remain around 125 over 75. I don't understand why my pressure fluctuates so much using Azor 50.

Was taking 2 pills a day for HBP before beginning azor. The azor brought my blood pressure down to readings like 107/70. The first couple of weeks on it were pretty good some dizziness, heart racing, etc. but nothing I couldn't live with to achieve those numbers. However, beginning between the second and third week of treatment, I began to notice that within an hour or two of taking my azor I would start with nausea and then developed uncontrollable diarrhea in the days to come. Dr. insisted couldn't be azor and even treated me for something else. My belief is to look to what's different in your life to discover the cause. After a couple of weeks on the doctors prescribed treatment, I went back to my old HBP meds for a few days and symptoms started abating. Kept on them until everything back to normal. Yesterday for the first time tried azor again since it gave me such perfect numbers, within a few hours the nausea, vomiting and watery diahhrea began again. Am seeing my doctor today to get refills for my old meds. Don't get me wrong, for some I'm sure this is a wonderful drug as it does lower bp beautifully. Unfortunately, there's just something my digestive system can't handle.

I've been treated for HTN with several BP meds before finding the "right" one. This med hasn't caused any of the SE that I experienced with the other ones.

Comment from: memphis, 45-54 on Treatment for less than 1 month (Patient) Published: September 01

bp dropped to 120/80 but wouldn't stay consistant. Side effects were mild but tolerable up until the 3rd week. Side effects included low leg cramps, pain in upper chest area that radiated down my left arm, short sharp jolting pain in my left temple, light headness, dizziness, little nausea, itchy throat, and a head ache that may have been caused by the sinus infection that I had while taking Azor. You may have cold chills that last for about 30-45 minutes also. I would not recommend this medication it has too many side effects that interupt everyday activities.
