I tried Lisinopryl and Diovan-HCT but they knocked me out. Aceon is better, but if I go below 77 I feel like a damp rag, so I have to monitor BP daily. Coughing is a minor side effect for me (once a day for 5 seconds--just keep water handy), but a friend of mine had to stop taking after 5 years because of the cough. She went onto Avapro. My cardiologist is happy with my BP which is in the low 130/...

I had no problems with the medication. However, the pharmacist claims it is no longer available. I was switched to Lisinopril and it has been as effective controlling my HTN>

I am taking the generic version of aceon for insurance reasons. I am sure this has caused me to gain almost 20 lbs. I've never been this size other than when I was 9 months pregnant! I have a doctor's appointment coiming up soon and will ask my doctor to change my hbp med to another type. My breasts and my behind have grown. At 5'8'I used to wear 8s sometimes 6, now 10s and 12s and none of my jeans fit anymore. If I continue taking generic ACEON, I'll need something for depression!

I think I'm taking the generic form and it is making me gain a lot of weight. 10 lbs in 6 months, then 8 lbs in 6 months. I've always been a size 8, sometimes size 6 and now I am wearing 10s and 12s...what is going on?????

I have been taking Aceon for over 5 years and have been completely satisfied and have never had to increase dosage or add a diuretic. My BP consistently now stays in the 120/70 range. I do experience a small cough mostly at night or in my sleep (I'm told).

My cardiologist is happy with my BP which is in the low 130/85 or so most of the time. I have low libido, not sure if it is related. Aceon intensifies the effect of alcohol for me, I have to be careful. Otherwise in fine health.
