Re: New to diuretics-Help with bad side effects!

Like Zuzu, I am also very big on ARBS. My Benicar has been a life saver. I had tried all other types of meds and either had no results or good results with unbearable side effects.
When my dr took me off of diuretics he told me my BP would rise for several days and then go back to normal. I went from 120/70 to 170/101 (trip to the ER) and then back to 120/75. I was taken off for the same reason Zuzu was.
Wishing you the best
