Dr gave me samples of Micardis. I am wondering if anyone out here in cyberland has anything good or bad to say about this medication. As for me, I'm scared. I haven't been on meds for a few years due to good readings. But lo and behold, out of the blue, my numbers have skyrocketed. So now the fun begins again...in search of a pill I could deal with, which probably will be none. Was formerly on Atenolol. Six months of pure hell for me. While some do well, I just didn't. So go ahead - make my day........tell me what you know about Micardis - puleese.
