I was on this medicine for 3 weeks before I told my doctor I couldn't take it anymore. It made me so dizzy and it actually raised my blood pressure to scarey levels. I'm on Hyzaar now and doing great.

I am very pleased the medicine got my BP under control. However, I live with the problem of constipation. I alwyays seem to feel bloated if I eat certain foods. Tried adjusting my diet..it has helped some. Definitely need to drink more water on this medicine. Will stay on it a while longer to see what happens.

While it seems to be effective I have developed a terrible metallic taste in my mouth which makes my food taste awful and drinking water almost unbearable.

Comment from: millie, 65-74 (Patient) Published: June 15

Have taken the medication for about 8 years. Only side effect seems to be a constant tingling in my fingers.

Has anyone else experienced a strong odor in urine when taking this medication? It was evident only when my cardiologist increased my dosage from 120 mg to 240 mg.

what happens if i stop taking it?

Comment from: 55-64 Female on Treatment for 5-10 years (Patient) Published: February 12

I had slight ankle swelling but excellent results. It slowed my heart rate down too low. After about 8 yrs., I just quit taking it as it would not let my heart rate go up during exercise. Probably a stupid thing to do but my pressure has not gone up after two weeks without it. Heart rate has increased to normal levels.

I was just diagnosed with high blood pressure and was given Tiazac XC. I had major side effects including non-stop dizziness, heartburn, migraines and nausea. I was on the medication for 7 weeks and finally stopped because I was miserable. Definitely not the right medication for me.

I was taking this medication for 10 days and then developed a hive like rash. It ended up covering most of my body with raised welts on my arms, chest, and face. Discontinued taking drug but ended up in hospital. Was given a large dose of anithistamine. It has been 4 days and I still have the rash all over my body but not as severe.

it helps reduce blood pressure

Comment from: villy, 75 or over Female on Treatment for less than 1 month (Patient) Published: August 18

High BP remains the same. Tightness in chest unchanged. Essential tremor of fingers and hands has markedly worsened during the three weeks I have been taken it. Will see my MD to go back or try something else.

Comment from: Amanda, 25-34 on Treatment for less than 1 month (Patient) Published: March 09

I was put on Tiazac for high blood pressure and a hyper left ventricle. Tiazac has worked immensely in lowering my heart rate. It use to be 150 beats per minute now it is 80 -100 beat per minute which is normal. I am studying to be an LPN so I want my heart to be in good condition and last a good many years!
