This drug has been horrible for me. I was switched because the new insurance wouldn't cover the old drug which had no side effects. Now, I have a tremendous headache, my abdomen hurts all the time, my face is flushed and I run a low grade fever at times. These side effects are growing worse by the day. I think I'd rather take my chances with the high blood pressure at this point. I plan to call the doctor on Monday and try to switch back. For me, this is a really, really bad option!!!!!!

Comment from: mike heit 65-74 Male Patient Published: January 30

been on it for year- bp is 120/70. (40-10 size) I read where this drug is typically over prescribed so I cut it in 1/2 and took my bp everyday- wow 1/2 was as good as the whole dose! If one is going to try this, be sure and keep a record of ur bp every day at same time. I graph my bp and heart rate on excell. I do notice my heart rate at rest is low (46-52 beats /minute but maybe it is due to my daily cycling. Had stroke in 2005, I'm 69 but recovered well. Not sure it it works for everyone but I never any change in the data from whole pill to half pill. Howeever i tried really hard to go for no salt (dash diet), exercise hard and dropped about 15 lbs trying to normalize bp. The dash diet and weight loss really works. Ideally i would like off this pill but it may be risky. My next move is to drop to 1/4 see what happens I do not like the drop in cycling power due to lower hr. Typically i bike at 20-23km/hour with a hr of 120 for say 40-60 kms. My hr will not get above 145.

The medicine is great, but recently switched medical plans and the cost for a months supply is extremely high.

I have been on this medication for about 3 months. Blood pressure is great! Just recently my feet started swelling and when they are swollen, it hurts to walk. I have an appointment tomorrow, to have it checked out.

Started 2 months ago - controlled my BP when several other meds failed. Now right in line - 120/80 or lower.

I have only been on this drug for 2 months and results have been great; Blood pressure is down to where it should be. No side effects noticed with this drug. Only negative would be cost and the fact that my plan D does not cover Twynsta.
