Re: Which Meds?

Have you tried Benicar? It seems to be a little stronger than Diovan and it doesn't have side effects (not for me anyway). It comes with and without HCTZ.

Hey Cassie,

I'm not sure if I have but I will tell them to give me that and we shall see if it works. I hate this spend money only to find out it doesn't work. I will ask for samples first..Thanks, Lisa I'm hoping others have other suggestions so I can go in with a list.

Re: Which Meds?

My Dr. presribed benicar and my insurance told me it wasn't on their formulary. My co-pay would have been really expensive. They recommended Avalide and diovan. So we are trying the Diovan I've only been on it a week.. I'm sorry to hear you don't think the Diovan is still working for you. When did you start to notice it wasn't helping? Good luck on your Dr.'s appointment. Let us know what you and you Dr. come up with. Bonnie

Thanks Bonib. I don't think it has been working all that well since last year but i like the fact that it had the least amount of side effects than any of the others i tried. I will ask tomorrow about Avalide..I will let you know..Take Care, Lisa
