    I took one dose of this drug at about 5:30 in the evening. I felt fine until I woke up the next morning (5:15 AM) lightheaded, nauseous, and extemely tired. I slept until 2:30 PM. My prescription was changed to Benicar. I've been on Benicar for 4 days with only a dry cough.

    Do Not combine this with Lipitor. At least on a long term basis it will eventually do havoc with living a normal life. For about 6 months, several doctors, more than two dozen tests, it was this combo that cause sleepless nights, the loss of 30 plus pounds, pain in the lower back, pain in the knee joints etc. etc. I have spoken to several other people some strangers who have gone through the same ...

    I was constantly having headaches which would turn into migraines when I discovered that my blood pressure was the problem. I have a family history of high blood pressure and heart disease on both sides. Taking this medication has stopped my headaches, managed to control my blood pressure, and have had no residule side effects from taking this medication.
