Re: Statin Medications

No, Statins are drugs that lower cholesterol like zocor or lipitor. hyzzar is a combo of an angiotensin receptor blocker (ARB) + a diuretic.
I had a reaction to one of the ARB combos (avalaide) It was something like anxiety. very hyper with palpations.
Anxiety is a very frightening diease. It can cause HBP and other health problems. It's also hard for some people to control. I've delt with it for most of my life.
Hope he starts to feel better.

Re: Statin Medications


I doubt very much that Hyzaar is the cause of your husband's anxiety...maybe PAYING for it is however.:
