I have put weight on through the middle section, I have severe, constant sinus congestion and I do not feel as energetic as I was prior to taking this med. I am going to ask my Dr. to put me on something else -or I will use natural remedies to lower my BP. I hope the weight comes off and my sinus problems subside.

This drug is terrible---weakness, weight gain, tired, nausea, back and joint pain. It should be off the market.

I am very glad this worked for me but they need a generic version as it is too expensive. One time the insurance charged me $65 then the next they wanted $86.

This drug works well to lower you blood pressure.....but...I have gained significant weight, experienced daily headaches and muscle pain, anxiety, thinning hair and a general feeling of sickness.

I have been on this medication approximately 4 or 5 weeks. I have had nearly constant diarreah. Am I the only person with this problem?

My Dr. prescribed diovan after another blood pressure drug caused very agitating coughing spells that were very uncomfortable. After several weeks the coughing subsided. My blood pressure has lowered nearer to my target range.

I was prescribed 160mg. Went to the 160mg/25 HCT. The first few weeks I was fatigue a little but pressure was down. Went to 320mg/25mg and now I have heart burn and indigestion. Went back to 160mg/25. I have weight gain,fatigue moodiness and now lack of frequent urination. My pressure flucuates and my doctor will not take me off of it. I dont like it but my pressure stays under 130/ and under /90. So whadda do......

Lowered bp to normal after 3 weeks with no side effects except slight fatigue and dizziness. 80-12.5 mg dose. During 4th week experienced uncontrollable diarreah, hair loss, nightmares and mood swings/depression. I would not evaluate this drug for use on a long term basis until on it for at least 4 weeks. Trying dandelion greens and tea as alternative to drugs.
