Please do not take this olmesartin or benicar or any other drug in this family of drugs. The side affects sneak up on you acid reflux ,chronic sinusitis and allergies swelling in muscles especially arms face and legs painful muscles shoulder pains back pains doctors just try to treat your symptoms. By mistake I decided to take a antihistamine for my sinuses and noticed how I didnâ??t hurt as bad kept taking for 2 or 3 days and swelling ing my legs got a little better. Wow i hadnâ??t felt normal for some time made a doctor appointment , she took me off of olmesartin and changed my type of BP med and within one day off of this drug I was a different person. Iâ??m writing this review because this drugs side affects will sneak up on you and the doctors donâ??t catch that it is the drug until people are very sick . Be careful pay attention to your bodies cues and clues!!!!!!!

This medication works well for me. The only negative side effect is that since I've been taking it, mosquitos love me. I get bitten way more than anyone else, way more than before. My doctor laughs, says he's never heard of that before, but, it's true!

Started out taking a less expensive ACE inhibitor, but it caused me to have a chronic cough that was so severe that I could no longer work, and I also had numerous sinus infections. When I changed to Benecar, the cough went away completely, and my blood pressure has been lowered to the safe range and stable. I have had some mild effects on my GI tract, but not to the point where I would give up this medication. I've found this to be a very effective drug that is very easy to take (I take 1/2 a 20 mg pill because it doesn't come in 10 mg doses).

This drug personally caused memory loss me. I went from calling out telephone number that was in my head for years to having to go the directory to find numbers. Once I stop taking the drug, my memory came back.

I took this drug for moderately high blood pressure for 7 months before I fully realized what it was doing to me. I might as well have been taking poison! I had diarrhea which the doctor said was not a side effect...but it is for those who have the sileac gene, which I do. This can continue to occur for the rest of my life even off the drug. I started losing my hair, not sure if it will ever fully grow back. A month after I stopped it I had a period. I am 70 and this is the first period I have had in 25 years, it was caused by the excess progesterone produced by taking this drug. If you on it I would highly recommend to stop!
