Cardiologist prescribed 25 mg. I looked it up and decided not to take it. I have had 2 heart attacks and then finally a triple bypass 9 years ago. I went off all medications after the operation and only take a baby asperin.Sometimes I have high blood pressure and I take a pill only then, but not regularly. The name is Irbesartan. My experiance after14 years is most medicines are bad for you. They slow down your metabulism, you gain weight and become fat. Your tired all the time etc. Pills are every americans quick fix. Eat healthy and exercise and get off all medications that affect your weight and slow you down to inactivity. Over 55 men look into testerone treatment. It's the fountain of youth. Lots of energy where you want to exercise and paint the house. You burn fat.
