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.

i was put on ibersartan when valsartan was recalled. shortly thereafter I developed severe heartburn and hair loss. I didnâ??t realize Ibersartan was causing it but after recently switching to another blood pressure med the heartburn and hair loss stopped.

This medication is not good for me because it makes me dizzy, headaches, tired and wants to sleep, it doesn’t ?lower my blood pressure. I keep waiting for improvement, but none after taking it for 10 days the pressure is still 158/95. I going to see doctor again in 10 days if no charge I will be asking for another medication.

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.
