Delightfully side effect free! Too bad it is way expensive - hopefully it will go off patent soon. They say December 2012 - oh I hope so!

My doctor switched me to this medication because my insurance did not cover my previous medication. My blood pressure has been up and down.She told me to keep a chart of my blood pressure and bring it along with my blood pressure machine in with me on my next appointment. At this time she will decide what to do.

Comment:
Been on Atacand HCT for over 5 years and has controlled my bp 120/80. Had to switch to Hyzaar due to insurance company switch and it's not on their preferred drug list. Atacand is very pricey but may be worth the high cost. Hyzaar appears to be a problem for me (joint pain)and since i have RA, the joint pain is much more pronounced!Will have to switch back to Atacand.
