I have been among those who get dizzy if I get up too quickly. My lower calves are tingly..like just falling asleep. I have noticed a slight discoloration in them as well. My lont distance stamina is shot. I get winded easily. I used to run 2 miles a day, but have settled for working out. I am very satisfied with the way the azor works. I was 150/100 and am now 100/65. I will take the side effects as a trade off.

Started on 10/40, and for three days had worst headache, dizzy, etc. Dr. switched me to 5/40, and seems to be working well. BP down, no side effects as yet (week 3)

After taking Azor (5/40mg)for 8 weeks, suddenly developed itching, tingling and burning of upper legs to above knee. Turned out to be hives. Received an anti-itch cream from dermatologist which did help. After 6 weeks of itching asked doctor if I could stop taking; he said no and prescribed an anti-histamine (again for itching). Decided on my own to stop using Azor and within 6 days everything disappeared. Have been given Tekturna (300mg/25mg) to take. After reading viewers reviews have decided NOT to take this medication and will stick to the treadmill for exercise. Only time will tell. This is getting scary!

After the first day of taking Azor I noticed an significant increase in my blood pressure. I took my pressure last night and it was 160/105 pulse 107. I took it again this morning and it was 166/107 pulse 113. My dr suggested I take Azor along with Trianterene to lower my pressure. At this point I considering not taking either of them. I have had constant pressure headaches, dizzyness and continued sweats. I thought if I reduced my stress level at home and work that it would make a difference. As of today 04/22/08 I feel "sick". The uneasy feeling I have is really scary. I don't know if anyone else has experienced these or similar symptoms. If so what did you do.

I have been taking Azor for about a month because of my high blood pressure. The only side effect is the irregular hearbeat sometimes which I have to tell my doctor about. other than that the medication is really helping.
