    I have exactly the side effects that are mentioned here before! Itching on both arms, which feels like nettle contact. For hours and usually in the evening. Taking medication is in the morning. Otherwise, the remedy works quite well, except for exceptions on some days. Why? It is unknown.

    Side effects: Itching; Increase in weight

    Diovan for High blood pressure

    I’ve been taking Diovan 80mg / day for several years now. Unfortunately, side effects such as dizziness, cough, headache and nausea (all diagnostically clarified and without organic cause) were quickly turned on. After the effectiveness wore off and I also had to take Norvasc, things got even worse. I want to get rid of the drugs in the long term and try to get into a reasonable blood pressure range by losing weight and doing sports.

    Diovan for High blood pressure

    I’ve had elevated cholesterol levels for about 20 years. Since about 4 years also an increased blood pressure was added and both were treated immediately. Ever since I started taking Carmen-later Corifeo-I started gaining weight. In the meantime it is about 30 kg! I felt increasingly uncomfortable, got muscle and joint pain, dizziness and water retention in the tissue. For about 2 years I have no desire for sex. About 12 months ago I was also prescribed Diovan 80mg. Since I take these meds, the muscle and joint pain have increased. Constant cramps, heartache, headache, left arm pain, knees, cervical spine, shoulder area, occasional kidney pain, a certain thinness and total listlessness, forgetfulness determine my life. Often I can not even stand anymore, climbing stairs is just a pain. Previously, I took ramipril, simvastatin, bisoprolol, HCT and had a strong cough and similar pain. I have no quality of life anymore. I can not take beta-blockers because of my asthma. Has anyone had similar experiences?
