Side effects:   No Side Effects
  
Treatment Info
Condition / reason:   hypertension
Dosage & duration:   10 mg taken once daily for the period of 18 mo
Other conditions:   none
Other drugs taken:   mvi
  
Reported Results
Benefits:   i had elevated blood pressure which was treated with different medications in the past. initially i was treated with norvasc which caused constipation. then i was treated with cozaar which did not control blood pressure well , instead it caused fluctuation of the blood pressure going from high to low over the course of the day, which made me very uncomfortable because i will sense both high and low blood pressure and have headache whether it was low or high. vasotec even in the small dose that i am taking now normalized my blood pressure , so i do not have fluctuation of the blood pressure any more.
Side effects:   none
Comments:   medication is taken once daily for blood pressure control. blood pressure is very well controlled. no side effects.
