Where are you having the muscle pain? My husband got bad calf pain from cholesterol lowering drugs so he had to stop them because it could lead to kidney damage. I got really painful muscle pain in my upper arms with resulting damage to the tissue from Cozaar. Do you have any swelling or other symptoms.

Since you just started HCTZ perhaps that is the problem. If you are sure the pain isn't from normal muscle use, then I would ask the Dr. if you could stop HCTZ for awhile to see if the pain stops.

I went on to have a major drug induced Lupus reaction to Cozaar with other damage to my body so there are certain side effects I don't fool around with. Fam
