Hi everyone. I,m new here and have a question about a new drub ( for me), that the doctor put me on for elevated b/p. I,ve only been on it for about a week and a half, but it is already causing me major problems. First of all I have a cough that will not get any better, daily headache, feeling of tightness around my head and eyes. My b/p went down, but I feel like crap! Has anyone else taken this drug? What problems did you have with it? I take Toprol XL 50 mg daily for heart palpitations and it has never caused me an ounce of problems, but it wasn,t keeping my b/p down, so doc ordered benicar to go with it. I refuse to take the Benicar any longer, although I know you aren,t suppose to stop it suddenly. :confused:
