[QUOTE=romoo;3471441]is it hard to loose weight on this medication

I gained weight on this med and was not able to lose it; even with diet and exercise (weight watchers and a personal trainer 4x/week). My doctor would not acknowledge that it was due to the meds but I "demanded" a change to benicar. Slowly I am starting to lose weight. IMO, anything that makes you really tired/fatigued will slow down your metabolism. On Diovan, I would work out and be exhausted for the remainder of the day. Try something else and see if it helps.
