I was recently dx with HTN and taking meds. I am already in shape eat wee and don't smoke, all hereditary. I'm only 41 and never had any medical problems before. I am having a lot of anxiety about my bP getting high, which I know doesn't help. My numbers have come down but I'm still anxious about it and worst I fear all the side effects of the meds! I could use any support I can get. I know it could be worse and I could have have something more serious, but I still am worrying all the time. I hate how I feel on meds!View Thread
Has anyone experienced insomnia with cozaar? I have been on it for a week and had to stop taking it. Sleeping 2 hours a night with Ambien. When will I be able to sleep normal again. I also take Toprol but was already on that before the cozaar. Side effects so frustrating! Help!View Thread
I also get bad headaches when my pressue get to be 150/90. ItIt makes me feel terrible and Tylenol doesn't work! My head aches are in my forehead also. Had a headCT aand it was negative. My MD said I just must be very sensitve. It sucks, once your BP comes down they will go away.View Thread
