Teveten HCT Side Effects

While Teveten HCT is generally well tolerated, side effects are possible and may include headaches, dizziness, and back pain. Most reactions to this medication tend to be minor, but there are also serious problems that can occur during treatment. Notify your healthcare provider immediately if you are experiencing reactions such as chest pain, problems urinating, or difficulty breathing.

An Introduction to Teveten HCT Side Effects

Just like any medicine, Teveten® HCT (eprosartan/HCTZ) 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.

Common Side Effects of Teveten HCT

Teveten HCT has been studied extensively in clinical trials. In these studies, one group of people received Teveten HCT, while another group was given a placebo (a "sugar pill" that does not contain any active ingredients). As a result, it was possible to see what side effects occurred, how often they appeared, and how they compared to the placebo.
 
In clinical studies, the most common Teveten HCT side effects included:
 
  • Dizziness -- in up to 4.1 percent of people
  • Headaches -- up to 3.4 percent
  • Back pain -- up to 2.6 percent
  • Fatigue -- up to 1.9 percent.
