    Started taking this medication about the time of the recall. It works better than any other BP medications I have taken so I opted to continue taking it. No side effects and BP around 120/70 consistently.

    Starting BP was 180/110 at times. Was started on metoprolol which was still giving me readings up around 160/100. I was switched to Irbesartan a few months ago and it's been very effective on its own. I get readings around 110/68 and have had no side effects. I am currently on the highest dosage but my readings are low enough, I'll be starting to cut it in half.
