I suffer with Migraines. I took Sular 17 mg for a week and experienced the worst Migraines and nausea ever. I was incapacitated with the nausea and the Migraines.

Ive been on the New Sular 8.5 since december last year. It helped my bp, but I have slowly developed more side effects. One week ago I went to ER for TIA. I believe the sular caused it. I talked to my doctor about it, he doesn't think the sular caused it, but I wasn't having TIA's last year and my blood pressure was under control even in the ER during the TIA.

My doctor prescribed Sular for me after I develope a bad cough on Hyzaar 100/25. About six weeks after starting the Sular I began to have excessive swelling in my feet, ankles and lower legs up to about three inches of the knee. The swelling would be severe by evening and began turning my feet and legs bright red. I cannot over emphasize how bad this was. When I got up in the morning my feet ... Show Full Comment
