Reviews for Amlodipine/telmisartan

Cucu January 21, 2020

Twynsta (amlodipine / telmisartan): “I have been on Twynsta 40/10 and another for 6 months. Has brought my BP down to average 125/70 from 160/90. Problem is swollen ankles, legs; dizziness, lightheadedness at time. Generally, happy with Twynsta. But cost is prohibitive. This med only costs about 1$ in Kenya.”

Twynsta (amlodipine / telmisartan): “Started this about 2 months ago, have gained 5kg, up all night going to the bathroom and swollen ankles. Will be asking Dr for something different, has decreased blood pressure but not sure the side effects are worth it.”

Twynsta (amlodipine / telmisartan): “I am using Twynsta for more than 4 years now and I feel relaxed after taking it, it does not push me to urinate like the other meds I have taken, best medicine I have used for high blood pressure”

Twynsta (amlodipine / telmisartan): “I was taking hydrochlorothiazide and my blood pressure was still 190/120. Doc added Twynsta to it and now I'm literally a perfect score. 144/83. Hasn't even been a month yet!”

Golflands April 15, 2012

Twynsta (amlodipine / telmisartan): “Changed from Candesartan/HCTZ to this because of too frequent urination. Probably worse now at 4 or 5 times per night - really affecting sleep. On the plus side, I'm fine during the day and my BP has dropped from 140/90 on the previous medication to 125/85. I'll live with it.”

Twynsta (amlodipine / telmisartan): “Overall well tolerated. Just put on higher dose (80 mg/10 mg) for better blood pressure control. I will see if there are increased side effects. Am currently on Twynsta for 3 months.”

Twynsta (amlodipine / telmisartan): “I have been on this drug for 2 months. It has definitely brought my blood pressure down to where it should be. Unfortunately, it is cost prohibitive because it is not covered in my plan D formulary. $5.00 per pill is hard to swallow.”
