This is the only medication that has kept my blood pressure under control for about a year now. Very Very Satisfied. Don't feel i've had any adverse reactions to it at all.

I'm only on Azor for 2 weeks, (5/20mg) has lowered my BP and had slight trouble at begining with BM. Now appears to be fine and have more energy , with less sleep (7 hours solid)and feel much more focused. I'm not a big fan of drugs, but pressure started climbing in a 4 month period to 170/115. For years I was on 10 mg of ziac, a 5mg. valium, a 81 mg asprin and a multi vitamin. I'm 60 and have been told by many medical proffesionals my doctor is right on the money with his diagnoses and prescreptions. Keep in mind this is new for my system, will keep a close eye on it but has brought my pressure in range 135/88 in a 2 week period.

This medication did lower my blood pressure, however it gave me flu like symptoms and made me very sick. The same as with Amlopodine, I developed a deep wet cough. I became so sick, I was bedridden, before I could get it out of my system and be done with it. Thankfully, I have a doctor that listened to me and didn't jerk me around when I identified the cause of my flu-like symptoms. In fact, he said he has seen this before and stopped the Azor that day. It takes up to 2 weeks for it leave the bloodstream and the flu like symptoms to go away. Doctor had to give me a steroid shot and a B-12 shot to help me get up out of bed, I have felt so poorly from Azor! Symptoms are not worth it! I'd rather kill over with a heart attack than have the flu the rest of my life! Just being dramatic here, in case any passion of my fury was missed! :) My doctor has asked me to try Divoan HCT. Will start that tomorrow.

While I am taking more than just this med, I seem to have some abdominal bloating, kidney (?) pain, and am tired. Am not sure if this med is at issue, but plan to check it out.

Comment from: Popcorn Papa, 55-64 Female on Treatment for 6 months - 1 year (Patient) Published: February 15

Was on HCTZ for several years but pressure began to creep upward. New doc put me on Azor 5/20 which lowered it some but not enough. Upped dosage to 5/40 and pressure came down into the desired range. Experienced swelling of ankles and feet, so doc rx'd HCTZ 25mg which I take in the a.m. while taking the Azor in the p.m. Other side effects: some dizziness (went away when switched to p.m. dosage, swelling of ankles and feet, tingling/numbness in upper right leg, undesired weight gain (was not warned about this), bothersome dry cough, propensity toward upper respiratory infections, decreased libido and increase in E.D. symptoms. The overall rating is positive for the desired results: lower BP.

Head aches and weight gain, BP lower with Azor but not acceptable because of the weight gain. Also mild chest pain about an hour after taking meds.
