Hypertension Home > Side Effects of Eprosartan

While most people taking eprosartan do not experience side effects, reactions are possible and may include things like coughing, a runny nose, and upper respiratory infections. These side effects are generally mild and easily treated. However, some reactions should be reported immediately to your healthcare provider, such chest pain; difficulty breathing; and unexplained swelling of the lips, face, hands, or feet.

An Introduction to Side Effects of Eprosartan

Just like any medicine, eprosartan mesylate (Teveten®) can cause side effects. However, not everyone who takes the medication will have problems. In fact, most people tolerate it quite well. If side effects do occur, in most cases, they are minor and either require no treatment or are treated easily by you or your healthcare provider.
(This article covers many, but not all, of the possible side effects with eprosartan. Your healthcare provider can discuss a more complete list with you.)
