  • From this study (5 days ago):

  • Pittsburgh on Apr, 14, 2015:

    Toprol XL and Diovan for 12-13 years. Last week I could barely walk with the pain in my legs and knees. I was ready for a cane. Driving the car resulted in sharp pains in my left leg. Shoulder pains were unbearable. I forgot my medication a few times here and there over awhile, and then I noticed...the pains were not there. I am now 5 days off Toprol, but still take the Diovan. I can now do knee bends and steps. My PCP is going to flip when I tell him, but I can live pretty much pain free now. I'm looking forward to walking the dogs and going on vacation this year.
