 3  HBP Feeling tired all the time and depress. I was losing my hair before taking Avapro, but since starting Avapro last January my hair loss has increased dramatically... like 50 x more. My doctor doesn't think it is Avapro, but I really think it did increase my hair loss. I am thinking of stopping it. It has lower my blood pressure; but the negative side effects is terrible for me. F 59 8 months

 3  High blood pressure Feels like I have an ulcer with gnawing stomach pain when I am eating. I take in the morning and have to run to the bathroom shortly after taking it. I also urinate more. Makes me somewhat anxious, try to fend off by cleaning or gardening. Take two hbp medicines. I went to see a new doctor and had a toothache at the time and needed hbp refill so didn't want to cancel the appt. Of course being in pain, my bp was up! Doctor ignored that. Also gave me EKG! A few hours later, I was getting a root canal. Calling tomorrow as my stomach is really bad since I have been on Avapro. F 54 24 days

 4  High Blood Pressure I've been on 150 mg. of Avapro for quite a long time with no side effects and it kept my pressure around 120/70. Blood pressure has gone up in the last few month, up to 143/85, so my doctor switched me to 300 mg about 5 days ago. Feeling fatigued and tired on 300 mg. but things seem to be getting better everyday. I was also feeling miserable with my high blood pressure and anxious, couldn't sleep very well, but now I feel relaxed and it has dramatically lowered my pressure to 113/64. I'm pleased so far and I have no trouble now sleeping at night which is a relief. F 48 10 years

 1  High Blood pressure It was OK in the beginning but gradually, particularly the last 2 years I have noticed crippling joint pain, leg pains, skin rashes, stiff neck, can't sleep at night yet fall asleep if I sit down during the day. Lately when I wash or brush my hair I am left with a good handful that has fallen out. I went to the Dr last week and told him all this and said I want to try a different medication as I felt Avapro was the cause of all my problems .When I left I noticed the script was again for Avapro. I am seeing a different Dr tomorrow. I also have cold feet and numbness in my feet. Another thing is that when I brush my teeth my gums bleed. A while back I looked up the side effects of Irbesarten, the main ingredient of Avapro and was surprised to see many of my symptoms listed. My Dr told me I could take Panadol Osteo, 2 three times a day. I don't think so !!! I will not be taking Avapro or Ibesarten ever again. F 69 7 years

 1  Hypertension As time went on the extreme fatigue and weakness were absolutely debilitating. I would lie down due to weakness, and be on the verge of unconsciousness. Unable to drive at times would have to pull over and sleep. I thought I was having weird food reaction, then my doctor halved my dose as my blood pressure had started to drop. I noticed an immediate feeling of wellbeing I hadn't felt for years. My blood pressure continued to improve and he took me off the medication all together and voila I feel fantastic. If I ever have hypertension again I will not take Avapro! F 56 12 years
