Greetings fellow group members: I'm in my mid-70's and until recently was on Cozaar to control my BP for about 7-8yrs. I used a daily dose of 50mg for most of that time, but about 1yr ago my internist increased the dose 100mg. After about 6mos on the higher dose I noticed a slight noise in my ears -- persistent, but tolerable. Less noticeable at times but always there. At the same time I became aware of the noise, I did a review of my BP meds and discovered that a possible side-effect from Cozaar in a small number of users was Tinnitus. It was then advised that I get off the drug. Another has been substituted to control my BP. There's not been time yet to see if there is any change in the Tinnitus or in a related side effect of fatigue. I am very suspicious now that the increase in the daily dose of Cozaar may have triggered the tinnitus side-effect. I'll be interested in hearing other reports and about how one copes in case the Tinnitus turns out to be a permanent disability. I guess time will tell. Happy to chat with those that care to reach out.
Two years ago I developed leg lymphedema following a radical hysterectomy, lymph node removal, and radiation for Uterine cancer. I am now 57 and cancer free but Lymphedema runs my life with several hours of required daily therapy and treatments. Although Lymphedema is not part of the vascular system I am concerned of any drug interaction that would complicate my Lymphedema.
