Suddenly stopping Irbesartan with doctor's approval

So today is day three of not taking my blood pressure meds (Irbesartan) with Dr approval. This morning my BP was elevated to 136/96 and I have a headache. Is this normal and ok or should I be worried? ## The 96 is a little high, but nothing severely dangerous. Why did your doctor have you stop taking it and how much were you taking? The FDA warns that other withdrawal effects may include nausea, dizziness, headache, and increased heart rate. ## was taking 300 mg and I had lost quite a lot of weight. My Bp has been 110/77 so we thought we’d try taking me off to see how I do. I have a Bp machine so I can watch it

irbesartan, safe to halve tablet?

Can 300mg irbesartan tablet be cut in half (abisart brand) ## Hello, Bell! How are you? As long as it isn't time released, then yes, you can cut it, as long as your doctor approves. The FDA lists the typical side effects of this medication as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, increased urination and hypotension. However, if it is time released, then no, it is not safe to cut it. Is there anything else I can help with? ## I have been prescribed 75mg irbesartan and take a half tablet daily. There is no split line on these tablets so are they suitable for half dosing?

Are there any warnings or adverse effects from this China-manufactured generic drug?

swelling of face lips

I just started taking 75mg of irbesartan..I am fine when I wake up but when I have a black cup of coffee within 30 minutes my lips start swelling...is this common and should I switch medications ## Hello, Graham! How are you doing? Has there been any change? It seems that you may be having an allergic reaction to something, and if that is the case, you need to cease exposure to that substance, because as reported by the NIH, such reactions tend to get worse with repeated exposure. It might be due to the medication, or it could be due to something else, has anything else changed recently? Are you drinking a different brand of coffee? It would be best to have this checked out by your doctor for your safety.

Possible clash of medication prescribed for High Blood Pressure?

Having been on Irbesartan (300mg) and Nebivolol (10mg x2 a day) I have now been prescribed Amlodipine for the last 2/3 weeks. Apart from the swollen ankles, along with stiffness and a tight feeling which GP mentioned was a possibility of taking the latter, I am now suffering horrendous cramps in my left thigh and also severe muscular pain in the side of my neck. My blood pressure has certainly improved with the Amlodipine but the disturbed sleep and agony of cramp/muscle pain is becoming unbearable.
