Tarka worked well to reduce my blood pressure for the couple of months I was on it. I had to stop taking it though b/c it caused me to have frequent upper respiratory illnesses and I developed a severe persistent cough. I coughed all day and all night, nothing relieved it until I stopped taking the Tarka. It is listed a possible side effect. I dont know why this side effect affected me so severely.

I had been taking Tarka for about 3 years and found it kept my blood pressure under control. About 8 months ago, I joined Weight Watchers, used their Core Plan, and have lost a total of 31 pounds. As a result, my blood pressure has dropped a considerable amount, due to the weight loss. My doctor and I are extremely satisfied with this medication.

Makes me a little tired. Causes E.D.

Comment from: jmahle07, 65-74 Female on Treatment for 5-10 years (Patient) Published: July 16

I have taken this medication for several years and until the dosage was increased there was only minor drop in blood pressure. I am still not convinced that this medication is all that good for the cost.
