I was prescribed Cozaar, 50mgs a day yeasterday and I am pretty upset about having to take meds possible every day forever. I am 32 years old and slightly overweight (female) BP was btwn 130-140 over 90 in docs office and between 130-140 over 80-90 at home. Have been tracking for about three months when this was first noticed. Oddly enough, I gave up smoking 6 months ago after 10 years. Was hoping to lower with exercise and wight loss. Any one on this med?
