USER REVIEWS

Comment from: jwilharm, 55-64 Female on Treatment for 5-10 years (Patient) Published: April 24

This combination of Norvasc and Lipitor did a good job of controling my blood pressure..but I found that it caused me to be "achy" and tired. I had two other people who were taking caduet report the same effects.....I asked my doctor to replace the caduet with regular Norvasc, which he did....and the "achy" joints and tired feeling disappeared.

This drug very quickly lowered my BP and reduced my cholesterol. I was very happily surprised and have zero side effects.

After trying various types of medicine, this one works for me. My average BP was 160/100, now it is 130/70. Side effects are dizzyness, but minimal. I have been on this medicine for about a month.

I have been taking Caduet since Jan. 08. Feeling much better. My joints do not hurt yet. I do not feel tired. My only side effect is that I urinate alot more during the day and night. I'm not sure why.

Horrible!! Severe joint and muscle pain. Couldn't sleep due to pain.

Comment from: 45-54 Female on Treatment for 1-6 months (Patient) Published: October 05

Uncontrolled HBP (avg. 200/115) for years, tried everything, cut salt out, lost weight, exercised, Ramipril, Coreg, Clonidine, Diovan, overlapped multiple meds, nothing worked. Went for MRI to rule out blockage or blood to kidneys or adrenal gland problems‚Ķnothing. I was taking Lipitor anyway, so doctor said let’s try Caduet , honestly, 1 day, and BP was down to avg. 123/77, I had to stop taking some of the other meds because it was getting too low! This is a miracle drug for me. Everybody is different, and the causes are different, just so glad we finally found the one that works for me.

Lowered my BP and Chlorestoral, no joint pain, but I do urinate 3 times as much during the day, and now wake up in the middle of night to go. Small price to pay for the benefits.

Comment from: pj, 45-54 on Treatment for 1-6 months (Patient) Published: April 25

I have not had any negative effects from this medication. I like it much better than taking 2 different meds for High BP & High Cholesterol.

This drug was not a good match for me. It caused constant heartburn, extreme dizziness, and a very foggy brain. From my research, the loss of being able to think is from the Lipitor.

I've been taking this med for a year now, cholesterol numbers were lowered by 100 pts, my BP were 140/80. I had no problems until a month ago, started having severe leg (muscle) pains, unable to sleep or walk at times. Dr. got me another type of meds and the pain has pretty much disappeared. If I didn't encounter the leg pains, I would have been satisfied with caduet.
