16 Oct 2016 Olmetec , sold in USA as Banicar Similar to what US users reporters I see same issues , my age is 37 when I started, its almost 1 year Started this med in 2015 and now thinking of quitting it after 1 year Blood pressure : Went down Side Effects effecting my life style: Started feeling fatigue or muscle weakness in right leg 1-3 month point Started feeling fatigue or muscle weakness in left leg 4-5 month point My cardio / Treadmill numbers went down from 45-50 min workouts to 7-8 minutes before I have to get off treadmill Recently had issues with some odd cramp like symptoms on my hip muscles and then woke up few nights with back stiffness This med is effecting my mood and personal life style Feeling down and depressed due to not being able to go to Gym anymore After I started this meds my stable weight of 190-195 pounds increased to whopping 243 pounds I went on a strict vegetable diet and liquid diet and even then just only managed to reduce weight to 220 pounds At almost 1 year mark experienced a very strong upset stomach last 1 day till I took meds (Happened once) At peak of my efforts I rode bike around neighborhood daily for 20 minutes (as this activity was not placed great stress on my calf muscles) This meds makes looking weight tremendously difficult , I almost feel disability of not being able to run or play sports anymore in recreational leagues I am not seriously in talks to ask my doctor to change this drug / meds I hate this med What I hate about this drug is it makes you Lose passion for life (No running , you get tired so quickly the weight gain ) even with strict diet

25 Mar 2016 I was prescribed Olmetec 2 weeks ago .I have been on 8 different BP meds in 16 months. The side effects are terrible. I took the Olmetec for 2 days and began to notice my vision being off as well as pain in my right leg. On the second day also I had a eye examination which was fine. On the third day I began to get pain in my eyes and vision was really off. By the end of the day eye pain was really distressing to me as well as pain in my bones like really bad arthritis.I researched this med and found it rarely causes eye pain and to stop immediately. Which I did.its been 6 days now and almost back to normal. Right eye still a bit painful and bone pain 99 % gone.I also have broken blood vessels over my right eyebrow. I am ditching these BP meds.Ill find something natural that works or literally die trying.
