For High Blood Pressure “After trying a few other blood pressure drugs my doctor put me on Tekturna HCT and my blood pressure has averaged 130/62 for the past 9 years. The cost is high but I feel well, no side effects. I am 86 years old.”

For High Blood Pressure “First day to take this blood pressure med. I am very dizzy. Scary dizzy. Going to try and stick with it to see if this side effect goes away. If not, I will have to discontinue.”

For High Blood Pressure “I am a male, 71 yrs age and overweight. Began taking blood pressure meds at age 55. Suffered through trials with several beta blockers which made me goofy, weak and then a few calcium channel blockers which required high dosage levels causing flu like muscle soreness. My doc retired few yrs ago and his practice was taken over by much younger female. She put me on 150 mg Tekturna after hearing my complaint in 1st visit. Life is good again. Blood pressure dropped right into desired range with no side effects. Only problem now is finding pharma plan to help with cost.”

For High Blood Pressure “I have tried ACE, ARB, CCB, HCTZ… and finally Tekturna 150mg. I’m a 45 yr old male that has struggled with side effects from blood pressure medication for several years. I have been on Tekturna for about 2 months. The first month was perfect no side effects at all. Now I am not totally sure. After a cold that turned into bronchitis I developed an ongoing burning sensation in my lungs and constant need to cough. I stopped Tekturna for 48 hours and the cough went away. I just started back today and will see how it goes. I really hope it was my illness and not a side effect.”

For High Blood Pressure “I have been on numerous medicines that did not work. Dr finally put me on Tekturna and blood pressure really came down. However I have had to change insurance and they require proof that other medicines have not worked, they don’t want to pay because it is expensive.”
