effective in lowering blood pressure, but causes some congestion
I, too, find it hard to open the blisterpac. I have to use a key to puncture the pac on one side.
I have been taking MICARDIS for two plus years and have been quite satisfied with it as my doctor is as well. I just found out my Micardis card is no longer available to me and that causes me great concern..The card helped me financially as I take four other meds. Please reinstate the "card" so I can afford to continue to take the Micardis..
Packaging problem I've been taking Micardis for over 2 months. My BP on my last visit was 120/80. When I started, I was about 130/95. I take Micardis along with about 25 mg of atenolol - my physician says that combinations appear to be more effective than either alone. I don't seem to have any side effects and the therapy seems to work. Although I must admit, I believe that BP readings in my physicians office are not that accurate because they are so casual about it and they never repeat the reading. I have two compliats with Micardis - 1) blister pack packaging and 2) costs The blister packs are nearly impossible to open and cause me great frustration of a daily basis. The blister pack so far seems immune from any type of manipulation to separate the foil backing per instructions or otherwise. I wonder if any of the genuius who work for Boehringer Ingelheim Pharmaceuticals ever actually tried to open the blister pack? Lately, I have just been forcing them out which breaks the pill into two or more pieces. I wonder if this kills the time release properties? The people at Boehringer Ingelheim need to talk to the people at Advil to find out how they manage to make their blister packs (e.g., Advil cold and flu)so consumer friendly. My next complaint is the costs. This stuff is expensive. But I understand that the pharma companies need to turn a profit so they can think up more good stuff to keep us alive longer. What I really object to is paying so much for something that I can't even open and may not get any theraputic value from because I'm ingesting broken bits instead of a whole pill. Come on Boehringer Ingelheim, get with the program - this is a consumer product.
