    Jackie,

    I was on Micardis only briefly. I developed a pretty bad allergy to this drug. I had probably every allergy symptom there is. Prior to that, I had tried its sister drug Diovan. I experienced a bad allergic reaction to that one as well.
    This drug is thought to be just as good and effective as an ACE inhibitor. It is very similar to it in the way it works. I hope you don't have any problems with it.

    Good luck.

    micardis and diovan did nothing for me except make me feel miserable and tired. I'm on benicar (which is the same class) and it has really worked for me. Everyone is different though.
