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?
Any thoughts?

Re: Cozaar???

Hi Lisa, I was on this medication for about 6 months. It did not control the blood pressure 178/120 so the doctor raised it. I did develop side effects with the doctor doubling the dose. We stopped it and I am now on Covera-HS. It may be that I have a hard time with b/p medications. I have been on many...since 1984. I was 34 when I was diagnosed with hypertension but it does run in my family. Hope this helps.
