I have been taking 300mg for high blood pressure but the results have not been what I had hoped. It did lower my blood pressure but not to optimum levels. I also take 50mg of Lopressor daily. Avapro seems to cause some digestive issues.

Comment:
Was put on 150mg, 6 months later, blood pressure tested for routine pre op surgery test and blood pressure was out of control! No one had a clue that it was totally ineffective. Doctor raised (doubled) dosage to 300mg. That solved the problem, and my blood pressure has been good for 1 1/2 years now.

Comment:
I had no side effects when I used Avapro. However, when I was given Ibesartan (the generic) over a period of 2 years, I developed short bursts of adrenaline which gave me a fast heart rate. It totally cured my high blood pressure. My problem is convincing my cardiologist that this is the cause of my quick heartbeats.
