I have had HPB for over 25 years and used other drugs in the past. My BP had gotten harder to control and the Dr suggested Azor. This medication is working very well, even during personally stress filled times in my life. I have no known side effects and am very happy and would not hesitate to reccommend it to others. I was hesitant to change, but am so glad the Dr insisted.

This med worked very good in lowering my B/P. Having been recently told by my MD that my B/P is of a teenager's, I have endured tremedous suffering and pain. On a daily basis I go through a series of constant fatigue, hives/rashes, dizziness, flushing, INSOMMNIA, sweats and at times leg weakness or leg pains , including swelling from the knees to my ankles. I feel miserable and have no energy for ...

I was already on Ramipril(10mg)for HBP, but my BP wasn't reducing enough so the Doc advised me to have a combination of Olmesartan medoxomil/Amlodipine & Ramipril. This did reduce my BP at first, and seemed to be working very well for a few months. However, a range of symptoms began to appearand take root nameley: swelling of ankles and lower legs; extreme depression and mood swings; increasing dizziness; lack of libido; insomnia; upper and lower back pain; body aches;chest pains (including palpitations);and finally, a lowering of my intellectual capacity (ie poor memory, inability to concentrate etc.) Please be warned that this drug CHANGED MY LIFE IN AVERY BAD WAY. I have now been off this medication for 2 weeks and have no swelling at all in my legs and ankles, and the other 'side effects' are slowly but surely disappearing. My BP is marginally high, under control with other meds.Read More Read Less

This med worked very good in lowering my B/P. Having been recently told by my MD that my B/P is of a teenager's, I have endured tremedous suffering and pain. On a daily basis I go through a series of constant fatigue, hives/rashes, dizziness, flushing, INSOMMNIA, sweats and at times leg weakness or leg pains , including swelling from the knees to my ankles. I feel miserable and have no energy for anything. I push myself but it is only getting worse. Here's what I figured out since I have been on this med (approx 6-8 months). In the beginning it works really well with no notable side effects. However,as time goes on, the side effects begin to appear one at a time, becoming unbearable as time goes on. I beleive the manufacturing company purposely designed this med this way in order to get HBP suffers SOLD on its effectiveness and yet hiding the side effects that come on during theraputic use. I am now seeking a new Heart/ HBP Md that truely cares about his patients and not just what free golf outing or vacation he can get from the drug representative who convinces him to push POISON on to us patients. I am now suffering with ITP (lack of platelets) a blood disorder and I believe is as a result of this medication. Please use every precaution before and/or when using this Medication. If you are on it on get off it ASAP. This med can kill youRead More Read Less
