... Hopefully the BenicarHCT will work.....who knows? ... (8 replies)
... I've been feeling a bit fatigued for the past week and for the 3 days leading up to this past Friday (yesterday), I also was experiencing some chest tightness, a few occasional "flutters" in the lower esophagus area, a flushed/warm face 2-3 times per day and a general feeling of being jittery without any sort of tremors or shakes. What really got my attention and had me... (10 replies)
... Zora, :) I don't know why doctors overmedicate. Ideally, they are supposed to start their patients on the smallest doses of medication possible, unless the patient's cirumstances require a speedier intervention. By using the minimum therapeutic dose, unpleasant side effects are often avoided and this helps with compliance. Quite often, the small initial doses get the... (6 replies)

Pain and BP Meds

... blockers for years, last year BenicarHCT and Norvasc, switched to Avalide about 2 months ago and something other I can't remember when Beni and Norv went off the formulary list. ... (16 replies)
... Recently ran out of Rx's, BenicarHCT and Norvesc, and needed to change brands since niether was currently on the formulary list and costing lots of money. ... (5 replies)
... My doc switched me from 25mg toprol to coreg 6.25 mg twice a day after a reading of 140/80 yesterday. This is my 3rd med. Started with BenicarHCT, a disaster. I was just getting used to the toprol, but my energy level is still low and my sinus congestion and allergies were out of this world. I swear I've expelled at least a quart of phlegm in the last few weeks. This whole... (11 replies)

... I've had mine that low and even lower and felt fine. My problem is it won't stay low. My cardio wanted me to try Altace 2.5 with BenicarHCT 40/25. I decided against it because I heard that an ACE ARB combo is good if you don't take a beta blocker. I do take 25mg of atenolol for palpatations. I wish I knew why it's not good to take all three.

... I can't imagine what the horror stories could be unless it's the trouble that getting off the drug causes. Just like a beta blocker, clonidine causes rebound hypertension. I have been on and off clonidine since 1979 and it doesn't affect me when I stop. You just gradually cut down the dose over a period of time but if you, like me are only taking .1mg you can just stop with... (5 replies)
Wean from Norvasc
Jan 11, 2005
... Boy, can I relate to this post! Same story different meds. I now get some good control with BenicarHCT 40/25, Atenolol 50, and a 1/2 of a clonidine when it decides to go up. Usually I'm in the 130s / 70s range but can go up to 180s / 80s sometimes higher for no reason. I can get good control with verapamil or diltiazem but can't tolerate them. I too, want to just keep a good... (15 replies)
... Are you on Diovan HCT or plain Diovan? One of my experiments was Hyzaar (Cozaar + HCTZ). It was generally tolerable except I gained 10 lbs in one month on this. I attribute this to the HCTZ though. On plain Benicar (no HCT), I've been able to lose weight without any problems (now down 30 lbs from that Hyzaar fiasco). I'd expect Benicar HCT to work similar to Hyzaar. ... (8 replies)

... I've taken Avalide, MicardisHCT, and finally BenicarHCT. Only the Benicar worked for me. No side effects and it was the only one that worked a full 24 hours. Micardis quit working after about 8-10 hours and the avalide caused anxiousness and insomnia. But as we all say (the hypertension motto) "we're all different" Cass (8 replies)

... I have little knowledge of benicar, atenolol or clonidine. Your morning blood pressure is excellent. Even though your evening BP is higher, 151/81 is not too bad. The Diastolic reading of 81 is excellent. How often does your evening BP go higher than 151/81? How much higher does it get? What is the worst BP that you've had? I've only started learning recently about... (17 replies)
... I wanted to get back to this Benicar thread with some readings since starting BenicarHCT 20/12.5. At dr. 10 days ago, I was 164/112, pulse 96 (was very anxious, hadn't been to dr. in years, had a pap, colon exam, blood draw, and also BP was taken about 8 times as it did rise over 164 depending on who took it and what cuff used). At dr. a week later, I was 150/100 & got... (22 replies)
... I'm recently diagnosed HBP, supposed to start my BenicarHCT 20/12.5 today, but put it off due basically to fear. Got a BP monitor this evening (OMRON-711), which I couldn't really afford, but I really want to learn how to keep track. I'm a 53 year old female. Well, it was 10 pm when I fired up the machine, and the first reading was 174/117 (right arm, didn't see that it was... (15 replies)
... Beerzoids, That is very interesting info. I also have normal Bp in the am then a gradual increase throught the day. Example: 116/69 @ 10:00am 151/81 @10:00pm. I also have high trigycerides and a weakness for sweets and carbs. I am on BenicarHCT 40/25, atenolol 75, and clonidine .05 as needed. I take the Benicar and 25mgs of the atenolol in the am and 50mgs of atenolol at... (17 replies)
