Re: Any thoughts/comments!!
Very often, side effects in response to a particular drug, are indeed dose-related. If 80mg produces side effects, doubling it will almost surely make things worse. But also, while 80 mg of Diovan may not produce any adverse reactions, 160mg might.
Still, generally, if you tolerate a drug well at a lower dosage, but it isn't quite doing enough to control your blood pressure, chances are you may not have any problems whatsoever upping the dose and getting good BP control into the bargain!
