  • Effectiveness
    Major (for elevated blood pressure)
  • Side effects
    Moderate (excessive sweating)
  • Adherence
    Always
  • Burden
    Not at all hard to take
Dosage: 25 mg-100 mg Daily
Advice & Tips: I have developed an MRSA, which was initially treated with a soma+ antibiotic which interacted negatively with Hyzaar. During the week or so I was off the Hyzaar I retained fluid at a frightening rate. Since resuming the Hyzaar I have lost nearly 30 pounds through its diuretic component. Since I was over 300 pounds when the infection was found, this has been a welcome effect!
Cost: < $25 monthly
Side effects: excessive sweating
