 1  Hypertension Made me feel crappy the entire time I was on it. I started out with the 10 mg tablets, was later put on the 5.25 mg tablets, was later switched to the lowest dose, then later on was put in the second highest dose and lastly had the second highest dose doubled. My blood pressure was never consistently controlled by this poison. Plus, I gave me a ton of side effects. along with me experiencing an increased heart rate that regularly stayed way above 120. Do not let your dr. prescribe you this junk, as itís absolutely not worth it. Needs to be banned! F 1 years

 1  Tachycardia Erratic heart rate and palpitations, sensitive to heat causing dizzyness and nausea. I developed raynauds syndrom, joint pain(osteoarthritis) and weight gain (30lbs) which has continued after the medication was changed and has severely altered my overall functioning. I had to change my PCP to address my concerns about how I was feeling. I eventually changed to a different beta blocker and felt better the first day off of it, even though the side effects have left me with permanent conditions. I would not recomend taking it to anyone. F 50 2 years

 2  Hypertension Weight gain, dizziness, headaches, runny nose, cough, very cold hands and feet, no sexual drive, hair loss, eye pain, ears ringing, decreased hearing, insomnia fatigue ALL THE TIME. It worked well for me in the beginning, or so I thought. I thought the side effects was me getting older. I'm beginning to feel better already. Exercise is extra hard work. I go to the gym regularly and noticed my first half dose, I wasn't so tired while working out. I'm in the process of weaning off this drug and changing to lisinopril. After first 1/2 dose, my toes were nice and toasty. My feet haven't been warm in YEARS! F 43 8 years

 1  High Blood Pressure Lowers pulse dangerously. Dizziness galore. Weight gain. blurry vision. Dry mouth which lead to dental problems. The lowered pulse will make your life miserable. Leaves you weak and tired. Ziac robbed me of, at least, 15 years of my life with dizziness, trouble breathing at night or when in bed. Others have complained of issues with erection, I did not have that problem. If you are Ziac seek better medicine or doctor. M 55 17 years

 5  High Blood Pressure Nothing really very noticeable. Perhaps a few irregular heartbeats...Due to a doctor's error, I've been on HCTZ the past 3 years, and have recently returned (gladly) to taking ZIAC. Compared to HCTZ, ZIAC is great stuff. So far, no complications that I'm concerned about. F 59 30 years

 5  HPB and Heart Skipping None really. Slowed my heart beat from 70 to about 55 and lowered BP. Also I sometimes have a heart skip, or a valve closing a bit early, that used to annoy me. Now they are very rare as well. So all-in-all Ziac helps my heart idle nice and smooth, and keeps my BP in check. M 35 8 years

 5  high blood pressure None that I have noticed and I am on the internet all the time checking any drug my Dr. prescribes. I take 5mg of this with 10 mg Fosinopril. BP 115/70 approx when ever I check it. 71 in aug/09 and been on this stuff for over 10 yrs. If I have any side effects they are to minor to notice unlike some other poisons I have been prescribed (CRESTOR). Been around a long time unlike the new not fully tested combination wonder drugs your Dr. can hardly wait for you to try. Your reading this so you know whats going on but have you talked to your friends about the drugs they are taking who may not have internet. I do it all the time now and I find the elderly expect to be in some kind of pain just because of their age and seldom blame the drugs. I have had serious problems because of prescription drugs and had to find out by myself what it was and thank God I did. Dont be shy Talk to your friends about your aches and pains as well as theirs. Good health to you all. M 70 12 years

ZIAC  (BISOPROLOL FUMARATE; HYDROCHLOROTHIAZIDE):  This combination medication is used to treat high blood pressure (hypertension). Lowering high blood pressure helps prevent strokes, heart attacks, and kidney problems. This product contains two medications. Bisoprolol is a beta blocker that works by blocking the effect of certain natural chemicals (e.g., epinephrine) on the heart and blood vessels. This slows your heartbeat, lowers blood pressure, and reduces strain on the heart. Hydrochlorothiazide is a "water pill" (diuretic) that works by increasing the amount of urine that you make. This causes your body to get rid of extra salt and water, which probably helps to relax the blood vessels so that blood can flow more easily. These two drugs are used together when one medication is not controlling your blood pressure. Using these two drugs together can also reduce the amount of each drug you must take, thereby decreasing the chances of side effects.   (Sources: U.S. Centers for Medicare Services, FDA)
