My new cardiologist has prescribed Micardis HCT to replace Triam HCTZ. My blood pressure has always been fine using Triam HCTZ and Atenolol. This new drug costs more ansd seems to list a lot of side effects. I'd like to know what experience others have had with Micardis HCT. Thanks

Joanne, if you are happy with what your doctor was taking, then just tell them that you would rather not switch.

In most cases, they are prescribing something new because some drug rep from the company bopped into their office and talked them into it. They got free samples, free gifts, free pens, whatever.

It really doesn't matter that a newer med is really a great unkown, the drug reps tell them it is great, so they start writing scrips for it.

Thank you. This same cardiologist also increased my statin drug from 40 mg to 80 mg. because my bad cholesteroI is 90. Total is 163. I really wonder about him.

I have been taking Micardis HTC 80mg/12mg for eight years. I saw a program on TV where a doctor recommended a caller that it was better to take blood pressure medicine in the evening. I had been taking this medicine in the morning. Is there any additional benefit taking this drug at night?

Macardis HCT: This medication was also prescribed to me
and I have experienced a lot of side effects, such as dry mouse, eye pain, back ache, etc.; but as you know all drugs causes side effects, specially those for heart conditions.
