    Only my systolic is ever high. I take no other meds. Usually 128/60 Pulse 60. on medication. Off=150/60 or sometimes systolic is higher. Tried to get by on 16 but need 32 and take it at night. Other meds for BP were awful. Can't take diuretics, K falls too low and get cramps. Pain seems to make my B.P high. Have arthritis.

    I take half of a 4 mg Atacand and all I can say is that after taking it about 1-2 hrs later I am so tired, my stomach is upset all day, and have a cough. My doctor told me to take 4 mg, with these side effects on just 2 mg I have to be insane to take 4. People talk to your doctor you are the only ones that really know how your body feels, and make sure they are listening.

    Since I have been on this med I have sinusitis, wheezing, leg and joint pain, insomnia, and am now noticing more problems with itching and rashes. I have made these complaints to my doctor. I have seen warnings of the drugs in this category and don't understand what it will take other than death for doctors to make connections of the drug and side-effects when presented at office visits.
