Thanks for the query to H.C.M.. Forum.
Atacand ( anacand ) is candesartan , side effects are dizziness, nausea, sore throat, stuffy nose , upper respiratory infection .
As you stated that you are already on pace maker so in my opinion consult one more cardiologist and get his opinion as physical as well ECHO E K G report is very important in this case.
Weight gain is dangerous so consultation is important .
Good luck. Dr. HET
