I have been on Olmesartan on and off for several years. Apart from suffering the usual side effects, it has no effect on my blood pressure. Unfortunately, I can´t tolerate the normally added HCT and react badly to calcium channel blockers too, I was, so to speak stuck. Dr at the end of her tether. Everthing else of this group (angiotension II....) have the same effect, ie. nil, only the side effects. I should add that I have been given Emconcor, betablocker, with it, which made no difference. Most of the time I do feel dreadful - nausea, stomach pain, headache, you name it.
I don´t really expect a reply, or advice - just wanted to let off steam. I do believe that the pharma industry writes their own praising info sheets, and the medics prescribe because it sounds so wonderful.
