Took Avalide (same class) & it lowered BP but changed me almost ruining my life.I had no sex drive and by suppressing my natural hormones it changed me from a kind "lady" to a b-tch. After 5 years hair loss began. Would not recommend ANY angiostien receptor blocker. Read online and see that it can cause early aging. Changed to Tekturna and it is wonderful but does not lower BP enough. Resting HR has run 140. Now Valturna which is a mix of the worst & best BP meds? i would appreciate any opinions/experiences.

Both comments from the below link have found Valturna helpful - with no side effects.
However every one is different and respond differently to medicines.
You will not know how it affects you until you try it.
All the best.
