      I am not the same person at all, since I started taking candesartan, heart palpitation started like crazy, confused, no energy, weak cannot eat properly, body shaking, pulsation in while body, and tingling and numbness in whole body.

      since I have decreased the dose and have taking supplements vitamins am better

      Kind Regards

      I've been taking Candesartan for quite a few years now, and it suits me just fine. Don't have any of the things you're experiencing! Good to hear that you are better, but perhaps you should discuss the Candersartan with the GP who prescribed it!'
