It is working good for me though there is some dizziness from time to time and also swelling. I've also been using wheatgrass powder and this combination is proving awesome for me.

Makes me feel sick in the morning, and general feeling of weakness throughout the day. At night, just lying in bed, I have sudden episodes of energy draining from my body, similar to a panic attack. Also, the effect when the daily dose wears off is my blood pressure is even higher than before!

I have taken this drug for 4 years, and I have dizziness and muscle cramps almost daily. It does a great job with the BP, but it causes several other problems.

Comment from: Sparky 75 or over Male 1 to 6 months Patient Published: April 03

Exforge is NOT a safe drug. I took it for about a month and it caused dizziness, fast heart beats, irregular heart and pounding heart beats and swollen feet ankles and legs. I was put on atenolol to try and counteract these effects but finally had to stop using it. After being off for over a month I still have swollen feet, ankles, and legs. Apparently this is a permanent condition. FDA should take another look at this drug.

I am healthier OFF FORGE than was ON it. From racing heartbeat, itchy skin all over, dizziness/collapse/passing out type feelings. Check my BP several times day/evening, normal without meds. Will take Metoprolol 12.5mg daily if my systolic moves up; which is also very effective for my lifelong infrequent daily skipping heartbeats.
