User Comments about Cozaar
12 Aug 2011 Freezing cold feet, loss of sensation in feet, swelling of ankles and feet, reduced urination, impaired thinking, sinus trouble, lethargy. Arterial spasms followed its discontinuation. It works for some (my mother takes it with no issues), but it is clearly not the drug of choice for me.

12 Jul 2011 My insurance was canceled for almost a year, so it became hard to get my medication. I did not know how much Cozaar helped until I had to stop taking it. The itchy sores on my face are unbearable at times so I am really glad my doctor prescribed Cozaar to help with the condition. I would like to know if Cozaar has helped with kidney involement so far I have seen no results.

09 Sep 2010 When my dosage was raised to 100mg, my blood pressure is down. However, I have a runny nose, a cough wih congestion now, swelling around the eyes and very vivid dreams which are causing me to wake up every 2-4 hours. I am also very tired about 10-12 hours after taking the medication and just want to sleep but can't. Also have more joint pain in my hips. Called the doctor today.
