      I have times where i fall asleep for an hour or two then awake the entire night! this can be consistent over a long period or like yourself just wake up early. this drug definitely changes your sleep.

      I found it clashed with my diabetes meds. eases somewhat when I am off them

      Can you tell me please why you say that about Biso and olmesartan?

      I was on biso for about 3 months because of my SVT. I came off it abruptly in order to have an attempted ablation. I went through awful withdrawals.

      I have been taking olmesartan since 2011. I am now questioning all of these stomach problems I have had, and they started soon after I started it. I read about a class action suite regarding olmetec for not notifying that it can give you gastro issues

      Interested in hearing your story
