Reviews for Perindopril

For High Blood Pressure: "Started Coversyl 2.5mg after my readings would show an average 150/95. I took the first dose in the morning and at night when going to bed I got a tachychardia which lasted 3 hours. 150bpm average and it wouldn't stop. Very scary. The first 10 days were horrible, dizziness, lightheaded, hypertension crisis, you name it. Diastolic number went down but not the systolic one. Average reading 145/75. Experienced anxiety and panic disorder. Went to the emergencies because I was feeling very unwell. They increased the dose to Coversyl 5mg. It was even worse and I went to a cardiologist afterwards who switched me to a beta blocker."

For High Blood Pressure: "I took Coversyl 8mg for 5 weeks, and finally had to stop. The lightheadness would start about an hour after taking the pill in the morning (about 8:00AM), and would continue for the next 11-12 hours until the drug's effects wore of for that day. Some days, it was so bad I could not drive my car. Also, my appetite decreased, I had a terrible taste in my mouth, and it did NOT control my BP as well as they advertised. Finally, I said goodbye to this tablet and went back to my good old dependable Avapro 300MG, which I taken for 8 years before my cardiologist convinced me to go to Coversyl. What a mistake."

For High Blood Pressure: "Just started on 4mg dose just over a week ago now. Blood pressure between 107 and 129 systolic (average 110's) and 71 to 86 diastolic (average 75) - was up 150s systolic and 90s diastolic. Surprised at how quickly blood pressure changed. No side effects to report so far."

For High Blood Pressure: "This medicine works great. It brought down my average blood pressure from 160/100 to 110/75 in a couple days. And this with a low dose."
