I have had borderline High BP (160/90) for some time, though I think always lower outside of the Doctor's office. I started taking Diovan 80 mg (the lowest dose available), and I haven't noticed any side effects. I do bike a lot, and havn't noticed any effect on performance.

Recently my cholesterol numbers are up. I have dietary changes I'll make that I suspect are the cuplrit, but does anyone here have any info on such a drug effecting cholestorol?

Re: Diovan

cha...If U are on BP medicine and your pressure is still that high I would call the dr., as U may need something else. When I first went on 2.5 mgs. of Altace a few months ago, it was up and down. He then switched me to 5 mgs. and it came down quite abit. It still seems to fluctuate a lot and if it keeps up I am going to ask him why and should I be on something else. There are many things out there, so don't settle for anything unless it is doing the job. Good luck. JJ
