I have been using Telmisartan (Micardis) since December 2008. My blood pressure is under control and normal, and I have had no side effects from this drug. Previously I was taking Lisinopril which caused severe coughing spells, which my doctor thought was due to asthma and bronchitis. I switched from Lisinopril to Telmisartan and both the asthma and coughing spells went away.

I have been on this med for 5 weeks along with my other Bd Pr med. and I take my old med in the morning it works, I take the new med at night and it does not keep my Bd Pr down. Also experiencing muscle aches and pain and developed a heel spur. It messes with my mind and causes depression.

GP prescribed this in place of Losartan when that became unavailable. It has kept my bp down but makes me dizzy and tired. I have fallen twice and been unable to get up without help.

Just started, but the pills have a sweet taste. I've never tasted a bp pill that taste sweet. Anyone else had this taste with theirs?
