Reviews for Hydrochlorothiazide/telmisartan

Judy January 29, 2020

“Dr. upped my dosage from 40 to 80 mg a day. BP is good at my morning reading but at the afternoon reading it's sky high again. I guess this drug doesn't work for me.”

Micardis HCT (hydrochlorothiazide / telmisartan): “I have been taking this drug for a month. It controls my blood pressure, along with two other medicines, but I’ve been so dizzy and tired that I discontinued it today.”

Micardis HCT (hydrochlorothiazide / telmisartan): “I did not get any blood pressure lowering effect from Micardis. I took it for four weeks at 80mg per day. I had no side effects, but put simply, the drug just did not work. I went back to Toprol 50mg one daily. Still searching for something better.”

Micardis HCT (hydrochlorothiazide / telmisartan): “I lost 3 years of my life on this medication. My blood pressure was controlled but I had chest pain, I could not think properly, I could not sleep, I had severe fatigue, I could not function. My wife thought I was just lazy. Lucky I found someone else on the internet with similar symptoms and persuaded the doctor to change medications. After going on Karvea I got my life back. I hope this can help someone else who is suffering on Micardis.”

Micardis HCT (hydrochlorothiazide / telmisartan): “Now that I being told by my primary care Dr. And an ENT that this drug I have taken for three years is the cause of breathing difficulty, a chronic cough, hoarseness, and extreme fatigue, I should be relieved but I am really angry. I've been told my symptoms were those of a panic attack twice. I have had numerous tests, prescriptions from several different doctors with no relief only to find out that I have diabetes II and should never have been put on Micardis HCT to begin with. Trouble with sleeping was caused by severe sleep apnea... I could go on and on, but the cough and hoarseness is still a big problem. How long will these symptoms continue?”

Micardis HCT (hydrochlorothiazide / telmisartan): “I've been on it for five years. Works great. Dropped the hydrochlorothiazide (HCT) because my blood pressure was controlled without it. Then the first substitute I tried is Amlodipine and I now have swollen feet and ankles so guess what, until I can see my MD I'm back on MiCardis.”

Micardis HCT (hydrochlorothiazide / telmisartan): “I like this medicine much better then my old one. Hold my blood pressure steady. I dropped 20 lbs and was able to go to half a pill wish I like because the dizziness went away.”

Micardis HCT (hydrochlorothiazide / telmisartan): “Just started Micardis. I will add more later to see if it works but I want to say that the packaging is difficult - hard to remove bubble packs. I have already pulverized two tablets removing them from the blister pack .”

Micardis HCT (hydrochlorothiazide / telmisartan): “I find that the medication works very well and have had little side effects until I was out in the sun for an extended period of time and fainted. Have never fainted before and attributed it to dehydration. Drink lots of water!”

Micardis HCT (hydrochlorothiazide / telmisartan): “I have been on Micardis for over 1 year now and I can honestly say that my blood pressure is regulated. I have loved the convenience of just taking one pill every 24hrs and have never had any side effects at all.”
