Hi tigger2869,

It is Friday, how are you doing? Did you call your doctor?

Many of the members of this community are going through similar situations, where they are trying to find what treatment is best for them. It is not easy finding blood pressure medicine with little to no side effects. I hope that you find something soon, if Diovan is not working for you. Please keep us posted on how you are doing. I wish you the best of luck!
Best Wishes! Amelia
