Cozaar review by 56 year old female patient

  Rating
Overall rating:  
Effectiveness:   Highly Effective
Side effects:   No Side Effects
  
Treatment Info
Condition / reason:   high blood pressure
Dosage & duration:   50 mg taken one time a day for the period of over 9 years
Other conditions:   Crohn's disease
Other drugs taken:   Boniva
  
Reported Results
Benefits:   Within a few weeks of starting, my pressure was under control and has remained that way for over 5 years.
Side effects:   I had no side effects that I noticed.
Comments:   I was diagnosed with high blood pressure (145/90) over 10 years ago, a few years after experiencing early menopause. Severe headaches were also commmon. First treatment: dietary changes and increasing daily exercise--not adequate; in fact, it increased. I was prescribed Cozaar, 50 mg/day, with the reminder that the first dosage tried was rarely the correct one. In my case, it was and I get checked now every 6 months. My blood pressure stays around 118/70 range.
