Over 20 yrs. ago my b/p was 200/140. I had chest pains and terrible headaches. Tarka eliminated the pains and headaches. B/p was reduced by about 15%. I take Tarka 4/240 twice a day. Trandolapril is the only ACE drug that doesn't cause a bad cough. I also take Toprol XL and Aldactone to reduce my b/p to normal range.

I have taken this medication for several years and until the dosage was increased there was only minor drop in blood pressure. I am still not convinced that this medication is all that good for the cost.

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

Comment from: Elliot 45-54 Male 6 months to less than 1 year Patient Published: May 03

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

Expensive as well as ineffective. Switched to generic trandolopril and verapamil. Much cheaper but still not helping lower bp.

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

Really has lowered my bp...only thing I noticed is my hair has started to thin out since i started...I take 2/240mg, anyone else experience this?

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.
