OY Brad,
You are a walking pharmacopaeia. :D

Atacand can cause back pain and joint pain but neither is common. I guess it;s time for another 4 day aversion trial...better make it 2 weeks.

I read back that you had problems with esophageal erosian from aspirin. IMHO Plavix is even WORSE than aspirin for inducing gastrointestinal bleeds. How long have you been taking it? Perhaps inter joint bleeds is a possible explanation for the arthritis.

I'm with you: after 30 years of one of these BP meds or another, I am beginning to think the way to feel best it to toss them all into the toilet and flush them to the fishes!
It can't be without consequence that when we stop one of these meds it feels so good to be alive. Mama Nature is telling us something here.

Ohhh, and Bactrim...how's your colon? :D:D

I am doing a trial on "just plain Cozaar" and no diuretic. I honestly think my numbers are slightly worse WITH the Cozaar than with nothing. More data needed. No other symptoms I think...well maybe nervousness, but then are things going on in my life at the moment!
