It has worked well to control my HBP. My only concern is when I exercise or go up stairs. By the time I reach the top of 40 steps it feels like my chest is going to explode. Other than that it has worked great.

Much preferable to the 1st drug I took for HBP, Vasotec. Vasotec left me feeling tired, fatigued & unwilling to execise as I normally did, despite a low 5 mg dose. No side effects with Micardis after almost 3 years, maybe a slight increase in itchiness, but am not really sure. Best thing is HBP is under control !

I had SERIOUSLY high b/p (normally 180/115). Took this and it is back down to normal (120/80). I had a few side effects in the beginning...first week I just felt WIERD. LIKE REALLY WIERD. Hard to explain but it was like I couldn't settle down and just felt very strange. After that - it went away. I've been on it for about 3 weeks and although my b/p is great, I am still quite tired from the medication. Staying on it and hoping that it passes.

I switched from using Lisinopril and have a much better experience. I don't have the stupid cough anymore. I am under a lot of stress lately but my blood pressure is great. I haven't had any noticable side-effects except the opposite of what the diarraria is but then it might be the stress. I have been thinking a lot clearer. Not sure about the weight gain...but I have been working out more. I feel lucky after reading what some of the others have experienced. I want to lose the weight and get off of medication all together!

Does anyone experience eye problems with this med? I have been feeling like my eyes are crossed which makes me feel disoriented. Its been occurring most of the day, off and on. More on than off. Not good. I'm on 40mg.

Comment from: Mike, 55-64 Female on Treatment for 2-5 years (Patient) Published: December 04

I am 63 yrs old and have been on micardusHCT for 3 yrs. I take it in the morning half of a 40mg pill or 20mg. It keeps my blood pressure at a resonably level. If I take 40 mg in 2 or3 days I get light headed.
