Reported Results
Benefits:   After trying a variety of high blood pressure medicines my doctor prescribed Zestoretic. Zestoretic lowered my blood pressure to acceptable levels of 100/70 from 130/90. The difference between this medicine and prior ones seems to be the diuretic. After experiencing the positive benefits of the diuretic I began watching my sodium intake. I avoid any food that contains 900 or over mgs of sodium per serving. This pretty much eliminates most canned soups, dry packaged side dishes and frozen foods. After 16 months of watching my sodium intake I have become much more sensitive to sodium and no longer use table salt
Side effects:   None
Comments:   I take two tablets once a day at breakfast.
