Re: Newbie! Anyone on Diovan?
Hi, I have been on Diovan (80 mg) for a couple of weeks now. Previously, I was on Lopressor (100 mg) and my BP was not controlled at all--140/90+ at rest! I then went to Zestril and had too many side effects--muscle pain, weakness, fatigue. The Diovan has given me no side effects at all and I run a constant 130/80 regardless of rest or not.
I understand that the medicine can also have some positive kidney impacts--many diabetics are given it to safeguard their kidneys.
Good luck! Thank God for these life saving medications!
