I have had HBP for my entire adult life. This medication is the only one that can control my HBP with no side effects.

Comment:
This is only the 2nd medication I have taken for high blood pressure. I started on the Atacand only and switched to Atacand/HCT. After one day of slight drowsiness, I have felt NO complication or unusual effects other than a consistent 120/80 BP. This is an amazing drug-no nitceable bad effects and has not impaired sexual performance as other BP meds do. Strongly recommend (I am in my mid 40s).

Comment:
I was diagnosed with high blod pressure about six months ago. Initially, I had some dizziness but that subsided and it definately affected the sex life initially. With changes in diet and a little exercise my blood pressure is now in the normal range- 120/80

Comment:
This is a very effective drug but I noticed that Express Scripts has removed it from their preferred formulary and recommend Diovan HCT or Hyzaar. I do have some light headed feeling but I don't know what it is related to since I also take some other meds.

Comment:
I have been taking Atacand for 5 months now, the early slight dizziness passed quite quickly and now I have no side effects. I am wondering whether it has a detrimental affect on libido though?
