FDA Approved Drugs and User Comments: ZIAC

User Comments:


For High Blood Pressure “I started taking Ziac about 20 years ago. I’m 53 now. It has kept my BP normal throughout the entire duration. I have not had to change meds. It keeps my heart beat down. Even during work outs. Can usually get up to about 150 during a run. No other side effects that I have really noticed. I am pretty active so muscle and joint pain are a normal thing for me. Motrin as needed. My only complaint is “no grapefruit”. I love grapefruit. This has been the only bummer for me. All in all I have been very happy with the results”

For High Blood Pressure “For 15 miserable years, I was on ziac 6.25 mg. I made a zombie. Slowed my heart rate to the point where it was difficult to breathe. I am not in the medical field, but I know from personal experience that ziac is terrible.”

For High Blood Pressure “My doctor has given me about 7 or 8 blood pressure medicines but I would have some bad side effect and the medicines would not work or would bring my blood pressure down too low. Niacin the only blood pressure medicine that has controlled my blood pressure with minimal side effects.”

For High Blood Pressure “I feel better in general, however there are times I feel awful, and when my BP was tested during one of those times it was lower than without meds, but still too high 140/90. However without meds, I feel awful all the time. Side effects include leg cramps, calf twitching, and excessive urination. Cramps are semi-relieved by staying hydrated. Tiredness and dizziness stopped after the first couple days. I am on the lowest dose, I suspect my doctor will increase it a bit.”

For High Blood Pressure “This is the first regular medicine I started to take -it did get my blood pressure down-no side effects that I noticed but now a couple of years into it my pulse/heart rate has perhaps become too low (48). I am on the lowest prescribed dose and may have to stop or change. My main source of stress (teen) has left so maybe I don’t need it anymore.”
