My Dr switched me from Benicar HCT to Edarbi a week ago. So far, so good. No side effects and BP is perfect.

I have been on edarbi for about 8-9 months. It really brought my BP down..sometimes too low,but started a hacky cough,feeling of vomiting, muscle spasms that were awful,painful joints,weakness,very tired,cough getting out of hand,and not tolerable.Urination weakness,and all around feeling awful. Medicare won't pay for it either.

This medication was given to me by my Primary Care physician and had taken it for about three months. At first it controlled my BP and shortly threafter I began experiencing headaches, developed body rashes and finally urine retention. He thinks I should continue taking it and I refused to to do so. I had to be straight cath in the ER and must now followup with a Urologist.

I have had high blood pressure for 15 years. I am petite, I exercise 3 - 4 times a week and I eat a healthy diet. I have tried every family of BP medicine, and they all seem to have side effects. My goal is to find the medicine that has the least side effects and keeps my BP down. I have been taking Edarbi for 4 months. I take a 1/4 of a tablet and my BP readings are very good, sometimes too low which has never happened in the past. Side effects are muscle pain (primarily in my hands and wrists), weight gain(approximatley 8 - 10 pounds), and intense hot flashes. These side effects are minimal compared to other BP drugs so I will do my best to stay on this medicine.
