Has anyone been taking Hyzaar for High Blood Pressure and had side effects from it?
I have been taking Hyzaar for years now and recently have had terrible leg pain and leg cramps in my calves and knee pain. I was reading about this medicine and found that it can also cause depression and anxiety. Has anyone had any of these problems with this medicine? Asked by Khalilah Tiell 1 year ago.

Hyzaar, generic name Losartan potassium-hydrochlorothiazide has been evaluated for safety in 858 patients treated for essential hypertension and 3889 patients treated for hypertension and left ventricular hypertrophy. In clinical trials with losartan potassium-hydrochlorothiazide, no adverse experiences peculiar to this combination have been observed. Adverse experiences have been limited to those that were reported previously with losartan potassium and/or hydrochlorothiazide. The overall incidence of adverse experiences reported with the combination was comparable to placebo. In general, treatment with losartan potassium-hydrochlorothiazide was well tolerated. For the most part, adverse experiences have been mild and transient in nature and have not required discontinuation of therapy. In controlled clinical trials, discontinuation of therapy due to clinical adverse experiences was required in only 2.8% and 2.3% of patients treated with the combination and placebo, respectively. The following adverse events were also reported at a rate of 1% or greater, but were as, or more, common in the placebo group in studies of essential hypertension: asthenia/fatigue, diarrhea, nausea, headache, bronchitis, pharyngitis. Adverse events occurred at about the same rates in men and women. Adverse events were somewhat more frequent in the elderly compared to non-elderly patients and somewhat more frequent in Blacks compared to non-Blacks for both the losartan-hydrochlorothiazide and the control groups.A patient with known hypersensitivity to aspirin and penicillin, when treated with losartan potassium, was withdrawn from study due to swelling of the lips and eyelids and facial rash, reported as angioedema, which returned to normal 5 days after therapy was discontinued. Superficial peeling of palms and hemolysis were reported in one subject treated with losartan potassium. Other adverse experiences that have been reported with losartan, without regard to causality, are listed below: Musculoskeletal: arm pain, arthralgia, arthritis, fibromyalgia, hip pain, joint swelling, knee pain, leg pain, muscle cramps, muscle weakness, musculoskeletal pain, myalgia, shoulder pain, stiffness; Answered by Charley Walson 1 year ago.

Hyzaar is a combination drug, and one of the two drugs is a diuretic. If you're low on calcium, diuretics can *really* cause your calcium to be depleted. When I get bad charlie horses, I find that drinking about a quart of raw milk will fix it in 3-5 minutes. If I'm not home, of course, that's not available. Milk that's been pasteurized and homogenized doesn't work as well, not by a long shot. If you get liquid minerals from a health food store, an ounce of them will solve the problem. It's possible that the other minerals help something, but I know it's got a lot of calcium in it, and it's highly available. I have never had much success with any form of calcium tablet, including Tums and including calcium gluconate, which is supposedly highly available. Those liquid minerals are hard to find, but you may find some liquid calcium or liquid mineral preparation that's able to help you. Calcium shortages are supposed to be bad for the heart, so I figure adding calcium that way is a smart idea. I also try to eat a lot of the dark greens, because they're theoretically high in calcium. Some people argue that *some* depression and anxiety are caused by nutritional disorders. They point to the fact that 2/3 of all Type 2 diabetics are depressives, as part of their evidence. I'm not sold on that idea, but it sounds like it might be right - and if so, it's reasonable to assume that a diuretic can exacerbate shortages. If you can find another hypertension drug that works for you, and has fewer side effects, go for it. However, Hyzaar is a sledge hammer that normally gets prescribed only for people whose blood pressure hasn't responded to other meds, so you may not have many choices. Answered by Donald Hessell 1 year ago.

Hi, I take a very similar tablet, they work in conjunction with other medication for lower bp but only work if taken regularly and will take a couple of weeks to consistently lower blood pressure, they work by increasing the amount of water passed through the kidneys and reduce swelling in the hands, feet and face associated with high blood pressure. Raised blood pressure (more than 140/90) does permenant damage kidneys but slowly over a period of time (mine already are) so tell your friend to take the medication every day, the diuretic will make her wee more in the morning but it does ease off after a week or so and she will not be taking it for a long period of time, her gp will stop it once her bp is stable, hope this helps Answered by Joshua Six 1 year ago.


Do I need a prescription to buy Hyzaar Forte?

Yes, Hyzaar is a prescription medication so therefore requires a prescription. I don' t know of any blood pressure medications available without a prescription.

How does the antihypertensive drug Hyzaar work?
Asked by Refugio Ildefonso 1 year ago.

Hyzaar is a combination of 2 drugs: hydrochlorothiazide and losartan. Hydrochlorothiazide is a thiazide diuretic (water pill) that helps prevent your body from absorbing too much salt, which can cause fluid retention. Losartan is in a group of drugs called angiotensin II receptor antagonists. Losartan keeps blood vessels from narrowing, which lowers blood pressure improves blood flow. The combination of hydrochlorothiazide and losartan is used to treat high blood pressure (hypertension) and to reduce the risk of stroke in people with hypertension.

Hi, today my doctor prescribed the meds " hyzaar dose 5 0-12.5 , for high bp?
has anyone used it already ? please help.. what are the side effects ? how good is it ? please help ..thank you soo much. Asked by Tonya Sprayberry 1 year ago.

Hyzaar is an anti-hypertensive med (to lower your B/P), and a diuretic. It's a combination of the 2 meds: 50mg for B/P & 12.5mg for diuretic. Take this medication in the morning, to prevent you from having to urinate in the middle of the night. Also, with any new B/P medication, change your position slowly. For ex: don't jump out of bed in the morning...1st sit up with your feet dangling over the side, then stand up for a couple of seconds, then take your steps. Why? To prevent you from getting light-headed or dizzy (a common side effect when taking a new B/P med). I'm sure your doctor has also warned you about monitoring your salt intake!! DO NOT ADD salt to your food!! This will further elevate your B/P!! Good luck!! Hope this helped. Answered by Dominga Pickford 1 year ago.


What are the hyzaar side effects?
i have been taking hyzaar for just over a year, and recently i have felt pain in my right leg and right knee and ankle. anyone have any ideas? Asked by Leisa Bessent 1 year ago.

Joint pain is not listed as a side effect of Hyzaar and since you just recently started having these symptoms after taking the drug for over a year and since your pain is localized to only your right leg, it's not likely the cause. Most patients experience adverse effects shortly after starting a medication, however, some medications do have side effects with long term use. Here are some of the side effects associated with Hyzaar: angioedema(inflammation of blood vessels leading to swelling in tissues), hypotension (low blood pressure), electrolyte imbalances, liver damage, pancreatitis, thrombocytopenia(low platelets), rashes, fetal harm, rhabdomyolysis(muscle damage/breakdown), kidney dysfunction, dizziness, cough, back pain, nausea, heartburn, & chest pain. Answered by Essie Borrego 1 year ago.

Hyzaar is a blend drug, and one of the crucial 2 medicines is a diuretic. If you are low on calcium, diuretics can *particularly* rationale your calcium to be depleted. When I get unhealthy charlie horses, I discover that consuming approximately a quart of uncooked milk will repair it in three-five mins. If I'm no longer dwelling, of direction, that is no longer to be had. Milk that is been pasteurized and homogenized does not paintings as good, no longer via an extended shot. If you get liquid minerals from a wellbeing meals retailer, an oz. of them will resolve the predicament. It's feasible that the opposite minerals support some thing, however I understand it's obtained plenty of calcium in it, and it is tremendously to be had. I have not ever had so much good fortune with any kind of calcium capsule, adding Tums and adding calcium gluconate, that's supposedly tremendously to be had. Those liquid minerals are difficult to discover, however you can also discover a few liquid calcium or liquid mineral practise that is competent to support you. Calcium shortages are meant to be unhealthy for the guts, so I determine including calcium that method is a clever thought. I additionally attempt to consume plenty of the darkish vegetables, for the reason that they are theoretically top in calcium. Some persons argue that *a few* despair and nervousness are brought about via dietary issues. They factor to the truth that two/three of all Type two diabetics are depressives, as facet in their proof. I'm no longer bought on that thought, however it sounds find it irresistible probably correct - and if this is the case, it is fair to anticipate that a diuretic can exacerbate shortages. If you'll discover an extra high blood pressure drug that works for you, and has fewer aspect results, opt for it. However, Hyzaar is a sledge hammer that quite often will get prescribed just for persons whose blood stress hasn't replied to different meds, so you can also no longer have many offerings.

Will Hyzaar cause heart palputations?
Asked by Brady Welker 1 year ago.

I take Hyzaar for my high blood pressure and I sometimes get heart palpitations, but it is very rare. Out of a 7 day week, I get heart palpitations maybe once, so that is rare. Check your BP if you are feeling them, maybe it is high or low at that time, and if it is, then you might need the amount changed, or try taking it at a different time of the day. Do you take it before bed? Answered by Buffy Camfield 1 year ago.


Hyzaar as a first time medication?
I recently have had high blood pressure... 144/90. 4 months ago it was 120/77. My doc gave me hyzaar 100 25. Is this normal as a first time medication? Anyone taking Hyzaar and having side affects? Thanks! Asked by Santo Diss 1 year ago.

The choice of a first time blood pressure medication depends on your other health conditions (if you have any). Hyzaar in most cases isn't a first choice, but isn't necessarily a bad one either. If you don't have other health conditions, I wouldn't consider it ideal because using a two drug combination isn't really necessary off the bat for the blood pressure numbers you listed. It is a water pill and ARB combination, so your most common side effect is going to be an increased need to urinate. The water pill decreases potassium, but the ARB component increases it so more often than not it cancels out. If you have diabetes, it may worsen your sugar control, and if you have gout it may worsen that as well. Make sure to check out information on the DASH diet as well, and talk to your doctor about other lifestyle modifications (if they apply to you) that may have a drastic effect at improving your blood pressure and may limit your need to take medications. Answered by Svetlana Bayer 1 year ago.

These are many, many different medications that can be given and yes: your doc can start you on Hyzaar. The most common side effect is low potassium in the blood, which occurs in up to 6.7 percent of patients. Other common reactions include an infection, such as the common cold or flu; dizziness; and coughing. If you experience more severe problems, such as seizures, an unexplained rash, or vomiting, contact your healthcare provider. Answered by Racquel Frankland 1 year ago.


What is a good substitute for hyzaar hct since i cant get it under my insurance plan.?
Asked by Kaitlyn Ohearn 1 year ago.

There are 2 parts to the drug. Hyzaar is a brand name for a drug in the ARB class. Your insurance company likely covers another drug in the class. Call them & ask. The HCT is actually called HCTZ. It's available as a generic drug. Your insurance will either cover it, or you might get it at WalMart for $10/e months. Answered by Dixie Botting 1 year ago.

Will Hyzaar cause heart palputations?
Asked by Joshua Rosewell 1 year ago.

I take Hyzaar for my high blood pressure and I sometimes get heart palpitations, but it is very rare. Out of a 7 day week, I get heart palpitations maybe once, so that is rare. Check your BP if you are feeling them, maybe it is high or low at that time, and if it is, then you might need the amount changed, or try taking it at a different time of the day. Do you take it before bed? Answered by Hazel Bigby 1 year ago.


Hyzaar as a first time medication?
I recently have had high blood pressure... 144/90. 4 months ago it was 120/77. My doc gave me hyzaar 100 25. Is this normal as a first time medication? Anyone taking Hyzaar and having side affects? Thanks! Asked by Lyndon Purcella 1 year ago.

The choice of a first time blood pressure medication depends on your other health conditions (if you have any). Hyzaar in most cases isn't a first choice, but isn't necessarily a bad one either. If you don't have other health conditions, I wouldn't consider it ideal because using a two drug combination isn't really necessary off the bat for the blood pressure numbers you listed. It is a water pill and ARB combination, so your most common side effect is going to be an increased need to urinate. The water pill decreases potassium, but the ARB component increases it so more often than not it cancels out. If you have diabetes, it may worsen your sugar control, and if you have gout it may worsen that as well. Make sure to check out information on the DASH diet as well, and talk to your doctor about other lifestyle modifications (if they apply to you) that may have a drastic effect at improving your blood pressure and may limit your need to take medications. Answered by Monroe Waughtel 1 year ago.

These are many, many different medications that can be given and yes: your doc can start you on Hyzaar. The most common side effect is low potassium in the blood, which occurs in up to 6.7 percent of patients. Other common reactions include an infection, such as the common cold or flu; dizziness; and coughing. If you experience more severe problems, such as seizures, an unexplained rash, or vomiting, contact your healthcare provider. Answered by Nancey Sawrey 1 year ago.

Asked by Marlon Wilcock 1 year ago.

There are 2 parts to the drug. Hyzaar is a brand name for a drug in the ARB class. Your insurance company likely covers another drug in the class. Call them & ask. The HCT is actually called HCTZ. It's available as a generic drug. Your insurance will either cover it, or you might get it at WalMart for $10/e months. Answered by Ila Corbisiero 1 year ago.


Has anyone been taking Hyzaar for High Blood Pressure and had side effects from it?
I have been taking Hyzaar for years now and recently have had terrible leg pain and leg cramps in my calves and knee pain. I was reading about this medicine and found that it can also cause depression and anxiety. Has anyone had any of these problems with this medicine? Asked by Hong Needham 1 year ago.

Hyzaar, generic name Losartan potassium-hydrochlorothiazide has been evaluated for safety in 858 patients treated for essential hypertension and 3889 patients treated for hypertension and left ventricular hypertrophy. In clinical trials with losartan potassium-hydrochlorothiazide, no adverse experiences peculiar to this combination have been observed. Adverse experiences have been limited to those that were reported previously with losartan potassium and/or hydrochlorothiazide. The overall incidence of adverse experiences reported with the combination was comparable to placebo. In general, treatment with losartan potassium-hydrochlorothiazide was well tolerated. For the most part, adverse experiences have been mild and transient in nature and have not required discontinuation of therapy. In controlled clinical trials, discontinuation of therapy due to clinical adverse experiences was required in only 2.8% and 2.3% of patients treated with the combination and placebo, respectively. The following adverse events were also reported at a rate of 1% or greater, but were as, or more, common in the placebo group in studies of essential hypertension: asthenia/fatigue, diarrhea, nausea, headache, bronchitis, pharyngitis. Adverse events occurred at about the same rates in men and women. Adverse events were somewhat more frequent in the elderly compared to non-elderly patients and somewhat more frequent in Blacks compared to non-Blacks for both the losartan-hydrochlorothiazide and the control groups.A patient with known hypersensitivity to aspirin and penicillin, when treated with losartan potassium, was withdrawn from study due to swelling of the lips and eyelids and facial rash, reported as angioedema, which returned to normal 5 days after therapy was discontinued. Superficial peeling of palms and hemolysis were reported in one subject treated with losartan potassium. Other adverse experiences that have been reported with losartan, without regard to causality, are listed below: Musculoskeletal: arm pain, arthralgia, arthritis, fibromyalgia, hip pain, joint swelling, knee pain, leg pain, muscle cramps, muscle weakness, musculoskeletal pain, myalgia, shoulder pain, stiffness; Answered by Genie Gorius 1 year ago.

Hyzaar is a combination drug, and one of the two drugs is a diuretic. If you're low on calcium, diuretics can *really* cause your calcium to be depleted. When I get bad charlie horses, I find that drinking about a quart of raw milk will fix it in 3-5 minutes. If I'm not home, of course, that's not available. Milk that's been pasteurized and homogenized doesn't work as well, not by a long shot. If you get liquid minerals from a health food store, an ounce of them will solve the problem. It's possible that the other minerals help something, but I know it's got a lot of calcium in it, and it's highly available. I have never had much success with any form of calcium tablet, including Tums and including calcium gluconate, which is supposedly highly available. Those liquid minerals are hard to find, but you may find some liquid calcium or liquid mineral preparation that's able to help you. Calcium shortages are supposed to be bad for the heart, so I figure adding calcium that way is a smart idea. I also try to eat a lot of the dark greens, because they're theoretically high in calcium. Some people argue that *some* depression and anxiety are caused by nutritional disorders. They point to the fact that 2/3 of all Type 2 diabetics are depressives, as part of their evidence. I'm not sold on that idea, but it sounds like it might be right - and if so, it's reasonable to assume that a diuretic can exacerbate shortages. If you can find another hypertension drug that works for you, and has fewer side effects, go for it. However, Hyzaar is a sledge hammer that normally gets prescribed only for people whose blood pressure hasn't responded to other meds, so you may not have many choices. Answered by Bernardo Senter 1 year ago.

Hi, I take a very similar tablet, they work in conjunction with other medication for lower bp but only work if taken regularly and will take a couple of weeks to consistently lower blood pressure, they work by increasing the amount of water passed through the kidneys and reduce swelling in the hands, feet and face associated with high blood pressure. Raised blood pressure (more than 140/90) does permenant damage kidneys but slowly over a period of time (mine already are) so tell your friend to take the medication every day, the diuretic will make her wee more in the morning but it does ease off after a week or so and she will not be taking it for a long period of time, her gp will stop it once her bp is stable, hope this helps Answered by Dorotha Afurong 1 year ago.


Do I need a prescription to buy Hyzaar Forte?
It's a high blood pressure medication. Asked by Luciano Nixson 1 year ago.

Yes, Hyzaar is a prescription medication so therefore requires a prescription. I don' t know of any blood pressure medications available without a prescription. There are over the counter supplements that are supposed to help but can't think of any off the top of my head. Tip: Hyzaar does have a generic available that might be less expensive if you are worried about the cost it's called losartan and hydrochlorothiazide. Also visit the website www.couponsfordrugs.com and there might be a coupon available for this medication. Answered by Camilla Gismondi 1 year ago.

How does the antihypertensive drug Hyzaar work?
Asked by Joseph Fracchia 1 year ago.

Hyzaar is a combination of 2 drugs: hydrochlorothiazide and losartan. Hydrochlorothiazide is a thiazide diuretic (water pill) that helps prevent your body from absorbing too much salt, which can cause fluid retention. Losartan is in a group of drugs called angiotensin II receptor antagonists. Losartan keeps blood vessels from narrowing, which lowers blood pressure improves blood flow. The combination of hydrochlorothiazide and losartan is used to treat high blood pressure (hypertension) and to reduce the risk of stroke in people with hypertension.

Hi, today my doctor prescribed the meds " hyzaar dose 5 0-12.5 , for high bp?
has anyone used it already ? please help.. what are the side effects ? how good is it ? please help ..thank you soo much. Asked by Davida Fineout 1 year ago.

Hyzaar is an anti-hypertensive med (to lower your B/P), and a diuretic. It's a combination of the 2 meds: 50mg for B/P & 12.5mg for diuretic. Take this medication in the morning, to prevent you from having to urinate in the middle of the night. Also, with any new B/P medication, change your position slowly. For ex: don't jump out of bed in the morning...1st sit up with your feet dangling over the side, then stand up for a couple of seconds, then take your steps. Why? To prevent you from getting light-headed or dizzy (a common side effect when taking a new B/P med). I'm sure your doctor has also warned you about monitoring your salt intake!! DO NOT ADD salt to your food!! This will further elevate your B/P!! Good luck!! Hope this helped. Answered by Kari Vorhees 1 year ago.


What are the hyzaar side effects?
i have been taking hyzaar for just over a year, and recently i have felt pain in my right leg and right knee and ankle. anyone have any ideas? Asked by Larhonda Altamirano 1 year ago.

Joint pain is not listed as a side effect of Hyzaar and since you just recently started having these symptoms after taking the drug for over a year and since your pain is localized to only your right leg, it's not likely the cause. Most patients experience adverse effects shortly after starting a medication, however, some medications do have side effects with long term use. Here are some of the side effects associated with Hyzaar: angioedema(inflammation of blood vessels leading to swelling in tissues), hypotension (low blood pressure), electrolyte imbalances, liver damage, pancreatitis, thrombocytopenia(low platelets), rashes, fetal harm, rhabdomyolysis(muscle damage/breakdown), kidney dysfunction, dizziness, cough, back pain, nausea, heartburn, & chest pain.
