Tekturna review by 49 year old female patient

Overall rating:  
Effectiveness:   Highly Effective
Side effects:   Mild Side Effects

Reported Results
Benefits:   Very well managed blood pressure within normal, healthy range. I had an allergic reaction to a more common blood pressure medication, Lisinopril (which is a combination of a thiazide diuretic and an ACE inhibitor). The newer Tekturna has worked perfectly for me with only the slightest dizziness when I rose too quickly early on, but no side effects at all after the first few weeks.
Side effects:   I had a very slight issue, early on in treatment (in the first few weeks only), of slight dizziness when rising quickly from either laying down or from bending over with my head down (such as when petting my cat when she was laying on the floor), but that fully resolved quite quickly. I have not had any other side effects at all.
Comments:   I take one 300mg Tekturna per day, in the morning, along with 10mg of Terazosin (Hytrin) and my blood pressure is wonderfully under control. My last blood pressure reading was 110/66 which is perfect!
