My only question is when will generic come out and what if any draw backs will there be to switch to generics?

In as much as my bp has gone down drastically, I pay the price by having chronic coughs and feeling light headed. Went off of the drug for 2 weeks,the results were..increased energy, no coughing, no headaches or feelings of being light headed...BUT, HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE came back. Afraid to take anything else, living with the side effects while at the same time attempting to lose about 15-20 lbs. in order to completely come off of bp meds. all together

No problem, it has worked for me. But it is too expensive. Like to get one cheaper that works the same.

I have taken this for almost 19 years, only recently the original does 2-240 stopped controlling my bp. Switched to 2others, will go back to tarka at a higher dose dispite the cost.

Overall, I have very happy with Tarka. I started with the lower dose and am now on the higher dose of 4/240. But now I have to take another bp med (Diovan-80mg) in the evening to keep my bp low until the morning dose of Tarka. I am still not sure if both will work together ok.

I have taken this medication for several years and my bp is great. I take this along with Toprol XL.

Dry cough cannot get rid of it

Comment from: Mrs C, 45-54 on Treatment for 2-5 years (Patient) Published: April 01

I have been on it for 3 years. It works wonderful for my BP but does cause some coughing. Not bad enough to require changing it since it controlls BP so well.
