I am on FUROSEMIDE, METFORMIN HCL, DIOVAN HCT,
METOPROLOL SUCC ER, DILTIAZEM XT, SERTRALINE HCL, and DOXAZOSIN MESYLATE. It may seem like an overabundance of medications, but keep in mind that my doctor spent almost 5 years getting this combination right. I now have consistent readings of 120/80. That's down from 180/115. I have always watched my salt intake.

I am on Diovan 160mg a day. I never really had high blood pressure just fluctuating, but my doctor thought it would help preserve my kidneys.

I take Diovan HCT and it is the best one I have found that works for me. I cut out some of my salt intake but I do use grinder sea salt.

I have high blood pressure and take Cosaar. It really works for me. I have had HBP for several years and have been on several different meds, but finally ended up with Cosaar. It is what works best for me.
