Hello Liz,

I had those side effects with Cozaar and Atacand, ARBs, I felt that I'm a dead man walking, speaking, thinking and living :(. I felt so bad but you know not all people who have used Cozaar and Atacand had those side effects and I have seen posts from men and women who said that they have no side effects from that group.

Anyway, I have used Zebeta which is a Beta-Blocker like Atenolol and I didn't experience those side effects but I think it caused depression and effected my mood a lot.

I'm using Cardiazim SR 90 twice daily which is CCB like Procardia and you know what I think that this is the best medication I have ever been on, No side effects except nightmares at night and maybe blurred vision but because I have depression I can't be sure that those symptoms are related to Cardiazim.

So BB and CBB didn't cause to me any of the side effects that you mentioned and because everyone is different you should try another drug class. I think that you should try ACE or ARB :), I didn't like ARBs and you didn't like BB and CBB so maybe ARBs (or ACEs) will work for you.
Please discuss with your doctor that you want to try an ARB or an ACE. Most doctors try to avoid Beta-Blockers these days as I have seen so talk to him.
Good luck Liz
