Azor (amlodipine / olmesartan) for High Blood Pressure "I'm glad to hear Azor is working well for people and I must add that it works wonderfully for me as well. The only side effect I have from it so far after 6 months is sort of a good relaxed feeling throughout my body. My blood pressure (BP) was averaging 180/110, sometimes very close to 200/110. Though some people have no symptoms at all with high BP I certainly did; I felt awful, very anxious, had migraine type headaches, small nosebleeds and knew something was wrong with me but didn't know what. I eventually felt so horrible I went to the emergency room and that%u2019s how I found out I had high BP. I thought because of my age (35) and good health and weight that a diagnosis of high BP was going to floor me but this medicine changed that. While in the hospital getting stabilized we tried 4 different medications which were not very effective. I found a general practitioner the next day and Azor was the first drug he put me on. The following day my readings were 130/85 and within 2 days down to 105/65 to 115/75! That was 6 months ago and my readings are consistently in that range except for a very rare reading in the high 120's/80's. I have energy again, I have no headaches or nosebleeds, I'm not anxious, and I feel human again. I can%u2019t put it into words though how much better I feel with a healthy blood pressure range. Thank goodness for Azor, it has made a major difference for me and the quality of my life. I wish you all good health and hope you have continued success with this medication. If you are browsing this page looking for medications to talk to your doctor about, don%u2019t forget to mention Azor, it might be the one that is right for you too."

Azor (amlodipine / olmesartan) for High Blood Pressure "I consider Azor a miracle. My blood pressure was 143/90 before taking Azor 5/20. My blood pressure now holds steady at 105/72. This medicine will definitely increase my quality of life and decrease my risk of heart attack and stroke. I have had no side effects from Azor and have been taking it for the last 18 months."

Azor (amlodipine / olmesartan) for High Blood Pressure "My only noticeable side effect from taking Azor is the cost and it seems to be getting more expensive. Which makes my blood pressure go up even more because it makes me angry. I like it because it works but if it goes up again I'm going to quit taking it"

Azor (amlodipine / olmesartan) for High Blood Pressure "I started using Azor 10/40 after my blood pressure was consistently 190/120. I take 1 a day and get readings as low as 108/65, but usually stay at the 115/75 range. What an awesome product. All this after using 7 different drugs to get one to work."

Azor (amlodipine / olmesartan) for High Blood Pressure "49 years old. Have had high blood pressure for a while now with readings like 175/102-170/100-160-/98 and when I would get stressed even higher than that. At night and at rest sitting in a chair it would come down to almost normal 145/85-150/88 but soon as I was active again it would go high . Never could get it to straighten out. Been taking Azor for a week now and out of 15 readings I have done my average is this 129/75. A lot of times sitting watching T.V it will be like 119/66-121/70 really great readings then when I get active I would check it and it would be like this 132/75-134/77 have had hardly any readings over 80 at all and the top number has not been over 140 since I have been taking Azor. All in all no side effects. Great stuff."

Azor (amlodipine / olmesartan) for High Blood Pressure "I am 61 years old, diagnosed high blood pressure when 18 years old. I was 6'1" when 18 and weighed 175, 29" pant size with 44 coat size. Have taken drugs for over 40 years trying to keep blood pressure in the 150 over 100 range. (Vasotec, Lotril, and others). Started Azor (lowest dose available), 2 years ago and have never had a reading over 120/80! No side effects for me and I feel great."

Azor (amlodipine / olmesartan) for High Blood Pressure "I've had high blood pressure for years, on Thursday my blood pressure was 206/102. Started this on Friday and the following Thursday got rechecked and it's was 132/88. I was in tears, my blood pressure hasn't been this low in years no more headaches, dizziness, blurry vision. I'm so thankful for Azor, it just might have saved my life."

Azor (amlodipine / olmesartan) for High Blood Pressure "Azor has worked great for me, taking my blood pressure from 240/120 to 130/70. The only side effect I have found is that it leaves a metallic taste in my mouth at times. I can deal with that for the great work it does for my BP."

Azor (amlodipine / olmesartan) for High Blood Pressure "It was discovered that I had high blood pressure in October '15 at the dentist. It was 177/90. I was shocked. I had no clue it was so high. I eventually went to a cardiologist & was checked out. My heart was fine but my blood pressure had gone up to 198/95. I tried an herbal supplement but it didn't touch it. When I went to the doctor he put me on Azor 5/40mg. I have been on it for about 2 months. My blood pressure ranges between 134/80 to 114-68. So the Azor has definitely helped. I am one who has side effects to most drugs but I can only say I have one slight one with Azor. I do get tired & nod off if I'm sitting in a chair watching TV in the evening. I had been taking the Azor in the morning. I will take it at night instead."

Azor (amlodipine / olmesartan) for High Blood Pressure "Azor is a powerful high blood pressure medicine. Unless you are in otherwise good health, do not abuse. As with all HBP medicines, take before bedtime and do not mix with alcohol or sleep aids. Good luck."

Azor (amlodipine / olmesartan) for High Blood Pressure "I have had elevated blood pressure for a number of years. I was on Avapro 300mg the past few years and it was working okay but I began to have episodes of 150/100 and sometimes higher with occasional headaches. It seems after a while my tolerance for any BP medication builds and they start to become less effective. My doctor recently gave me a trial of Azor 40/5 to get my numbers under better control and within a week I am running around a consistent 120/80 with no noticeable side-effects. I also have begun to notice better sleep and easier concentration at work as some others noted. I am hoping the success continues with medication!"

Azor (amlodipine / olmesartan) for High Blood Pressure "I had pretty consistent high BP readings. When saw doctor, it was 177/110. He prescribed Azor, and in 6 hours I was down to 130/85. A MIRACLE TO ME. Thanks for this great product, no side effects after almost a year."

Azor (amlodipine / olmesartan) for High Blood Pressure "Blood Pressure went from about 140 over 70 to 190 over 98 with Lisinopril. I was surprised that Lisinopril stopped working for me. Started taking Azor 5/40 about a month ago and my blood pressure is 118 to 125 over 60 to 67. I never had blood pressure as good as this."

Azor (amlodipine / olmesartan) for High Blood Pressure "Have been taking 10-40 dosage for a little over 6 months. Agree with everyone that it seemed like a miracle medicine the first couple of days %u2013 %u201Cfinally something that worked on my blood pressure%u201D. Then started having dizziness, severe flushes, and night sweats (not hot-flashes which was already over with), muscle pain (started taking increase in calcium, potassium and magnesium and then read in side-effects for Azor that taking potassium with Azor may cause damage to the heart. Also noticed hair loss, which has worsened as time went on, and now noticing patches of hair loss, again, %u201CHm-mm....Would I rather have hair loss or low blood pressure?%u201D It is a toss-up, especially since I have tried at least 20 other medications with no success. Going to see my doctor tomorrow, hopefully there is a remedy for me and good luck to the rest of you."

Azor (amlodipine / olmesartan) for High Blood Pressure "This is my first week on Azor and not only is my blood pressure in the 117/80 range, I slept peacefully through the night and experienced wonderfully pleasant dreams for the first time in nearly five years! So Azor is obviously having a positive effect on my sleep apnea as well. Was a bit dizzy the first morning of the first pill but have been fine since. I'm grateful for the changes."

Azor (amlodipine / olmesartan) for High Blood Pressure "After trying multiple medicines for high blood pressure over the course of 10 years I was given a prescription for Azor and saw improvements almost immediately. Before Azor my BP was average 160-175/120, with Azor I am consistently 117/76-80."

Azor (amlodipine / olmesartan) for High Blood Pressure "I am a 65 year Male, been on high blood pressure meds for about 15 years. Two years ago my medication for HBP was not working as well my pressure was up to 185/95. My doctor gave me a 21 day free trial of Azor 10/40 mg, this dose was working great 117/73 no problems but by the middle of the 3rd week my face and most of my body was burning up like fever. MY doctor gave me clonidine to reduce the flushing but did not work, so I had to stop taking Azor. If you don't get any side effects, Azor is great."

Azor (amlodipine / olmesartan) for High Blood Pressure "Azor has been a great product for me. Two others just would not work for me. Azor gave me a flushed face and swollen ankles in the beginning, but that has subsided quite a bit now. Also have less urination too, but does not seem to affect my health in any way. Just make sure you tell your doctor of any side effects you get."

Azor (amlodipine / olmesartan) for High Blood Pressure "Excellent medicine for me with no side effects. Have been on 5/20 dosage once daily along with 25mg of hydrochlorothiazide and my blood pressure is the lowest it's been in 40 years. My average reading about 118/72. Previously had readings of 160-170/90-100"

Azor (amlodipine / olmesartan) for High Blood Pressure "First off thank you all! After several prescriptions with sever side effects I found this site and tried Azor. I noticed a clarity and sense of well being. Normally from the first pill of other prescriptions I was sick... Azor works, blood pressure is down side effects minimum... Give it a shot! Also know that I found these drugs on my own, evaluating drug reviews here and at other sites, my doctor was looking up a category of drugs in his D.S.M # booklet and writing prescriptions."

Azor (amlodipine / olmesartan) for High Blood Pressure "My Cardiologist prescribed Azor over Enalapril. In less than a week, I ended up at the hospital with several headaches, tremendous constipation, fainting spells, etc. Azor is extremely expensive; it might do the job of controlling the blood pressure. At the same time, it gives the patient 5,000 different side effects. It should be taken off the market. Thank you."

Azor (amlodipine / olmesartan) for High Blood Pressure "After years of High Blood Pressure and a series of medicines my awesome doctor prescribed Azor along with a diuretic and my blood pressure was 145/110 and now the average is 120/77. A great medicine and I would tell everyone it is a great medicine. Thanks Dr. G."

Azor (amlodipine / olmesartan) for High Blood Pressure "My blood pressure averaged 160/110. This was the first medicine I was prescribed for high blood pressure, and the next day I started getting readings in the 120/80 range and have been normal ever since. I have not had one side effect from this medicine in 3 months now."
- March 14, 2009
Azor (amlodipine / olmesartan) for High Blood Pressure "Too soon to tell but noticed immediate sense of well being. Better sleep (>apnea), less frequent urination, but now I see that is one side effect. Also noted feet swelling in first 3 days, but that may be attributable to dietary factors. Overall a very observable increase in energy."

Azor (amlodipine / olmesartan) for High Blood Pressure "I have been taking Azor for about 2 years. I am, now, beginning to experience severe side effects (especially, hives and itching). I am miserable. Occasionally, my tongue and fingers swell. I have reported it to my doctor. He has given me a prescription to counteract the itching and suggested that I take Benadryl. Benadryl makes me so sleepy and incoherent. However, this medication (Azor) is definitely working for my blood pressure; which was 180 over 100 . With the Azor it goes down tremendously. How can this decrease my blood pressure, yet makes me sick otherwise."
