I was taking Diovan HCT 320/25mg and the one dose daily wasn't controlling my BP through the day. I now take Exforge HCT 5/160/12.5 twice a day and my BP runs about 126/68-70. I feel so much better. I was diagnosed with PVC's several years ago after starting BP meds. I still have those, so I suspect the med is causing some of it. All heart tests came back negative, otherwise.

I am experiencing extreme sweating episodes. Heart paplitations and chest tightness. Shortness of breathe. This medication is not a good drug for everyone. Doctors are too quick to dismiss the side effects because they seem to outweigh the benefits
