I had a hip replacement 3 months ago and in the hospital they said I had high b.p. The doctor tried me on one drug that didn't lower the b.p. but gave me a cough. So then I started on Axeler (I live in France -- this contains Amlodopine and Olmesartan). A few days after I started taking it I got dreadful muscle pains in my thighs after rather a lot of walking. Thought at first I'd just overdone it, but then I started to think maybe it was a side-effect so stopped the medication. The pain retreated somewhat though did not disappear completely. After a couple of weeks I thought I'd try the pills again and the pains got worse again. I've now been off it again for about 5 days and am still having pains in my legs, though not as bad as when I take the drug. I've never had anything like this before, used to enjoy walking so much, now can hardly do any without pain. I'm feeling rather desperate and don't know if the drug could really have such a powerful and long-lasting effect. Anybody have any ideas about this?
