Cozaar Pneumonia Causes and Reviews


Pneumonia is an infection in one or both of the lungs. Many germs, such as bacteria, viruses, and fungi, can cause Pneumonia. You can also get Pneumonia by inhaling a liquid or chemical. People most at risk are older than 65 or younger than 2 years of age, or already have health problems.

Symptoms of Pneumonia vary from mild to severe. See your doctor promptly if you

  • Have a high fever
  • Have shaking chills
  • Have a cough with phlegm that doesn't improve or gets worse
  • Develop shortness of breath with normal daily activities
  • Have chest pain when you breathe or cough
  • Feel suddenly worse after a cold or the flu

Your doctor will use your medical history, a physical exam, and lab tests to diagnose Pneumonia. Treatment depends on what kind you have. If bacteria are the cause, antibiotics should help. If you have viral Pneumonia, your doctor may prescribe an antiviral medicine to treat it.

Preventing Pneumonia is always better than treating it. Vaccines are available to prevent pneumococcal Pneumonia and the flu. Other preventive measures include washing your hands frequently and not smoking.

Cozaar Pneumonia Reviews

Thu, 31 Mar 2011

I have taken Cozaar for 8 years, never had a problem. My dose was 100 mg at night and 50 mg in morning. Suddenly out of the blue my blood pressure spiked to 185/135 and my heart went into a continuous fibrilation that lasted 2 hours. I felt dizzy and faint and sick tomy stomach. I went to emergency room but everything checked out ok. My pressure was high and has stayed higher than usual for a week. I still feel a little dizzy and my heart flutters occassionaly. Wonder if anyone else has had this experience after taking Cozaar for a length of time?

Sun, 13 Sep 2009

Sat, 05 Dec 2009
I don't want to say my side-effects are from Cozaar alone, but I do feel a little different. I also take Metoprolol for my high blood. Anyway, I can't walk normally anymore. I'm a Carpenter by trade and that makes it 10 's harder. I walk with a limp. Never did until I got on these drugs. My legs feel so tired at the end of the day. And they're weak feeling. But mostly painfull and tired. I've noticed my left leg is basically, (I hate to say it), getting thinner than my right. My hands feel funny, (it's a project to open a bottle of soda), or cut my fingernails. I was never like this until I started going to Doctors. I don't know you tell me, if anyone's interested. Please!!!SOMEBODY! my email is : auxpolice at optonline.net. Thank you
