Reviews for Amlodipine / telmisartan
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. $5.00 per pill is hard to swallow."
Twynsta (amlodipine / telmisartan) "Started this about 2 months ago, have gained 5kg, up all night going to the bathroom and swollen ankles. Will be asking Dr for something different, has decreased blood pressure but not sure the side effects are worth it."
Twynsta (amlodipine / telmisartan) "I have been on Twynsta 40/10 and another for 6 months. Has brought my BP down to average 125/70 from 160/90. Problem is swollen ankles, legs; dizziness, lightheadedness at time. Generally, happy with Twynsta. But cost is prohibitive. This med only costs about 1$ in Kenya."
Twynsta (amlodipine / telmisartan) "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."
Are you taking this medicine?
"I have prescribed several combinations of beta-blockers before this. Nothing worked better than this. That is, other combinations, like amlodipine/atenolol had severe side effects on me, while my doctor prescribed this medicine, I am used to it. No side effects, but best result in lowering BP. A bit expensive but overall I am happy with it."
"Have been on Twynsta for 11 years. Generally no side effects and BP maintained within healthy range mostly except upon excessive wine consumption and lack of exercise. I feel it has been a very effective BP control pill though in reality could personally make bigger lifestyle effort to reduce my BP levels."
"Amlodipine/telmisartan 40mg 5mg worked to lower my BP to 104/60 when I was averaging 150/90. The first dose gave me facial red spots and weird dreams that are permanent. After a few months, my gums became spongey and recessive. There were skin issues from scalp downward and my hair thinned. I couldn't live with the skin and gum problems, so I went back to an ACE with a diuretic and stage 1 and 2 HTN."
Twynsta (amlodipine / telmisartan) "Have been on Twynsta for 4 years...I have a great BP 112/70. And absolutely no side effects. I am completely happy with 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) "Awesome medicine. Have been on it for 3 years. I have perfect blood pressure now. No side effects. I love it."
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!"
Twynsta (amlodipine / telmisartan) "Using twynsta. Gained weight, from 56 kg to 63kg. Cramps in legs. Thinking of using natural remedies."
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) "My BP was running high 147/85 in the UK and docs left me alone it was that high from the age of 40 then relocated at 57 to Asia around 60 my BP shot up to 156/90 and my cardio put me on twynsta 40/5 and increased to 80/5 and after 2 years now on lower dose of 40/5. In addition I had racing heart and also took 5mg Neblilet and it did the trick but after 2 years my BP dropped and now Nebilet 1.5 you can split the tablet by hand and my BP is between 110/80 and 125/80 depending on time of day. So 40/5 Twynsta and 1.5 nebilet daily and monitor my BP regular that is the key keep and eye on it. Ive gained a bit of belly fat...my ED is controlled by Cialis."
