Losar H For Bp Side Effects
This tablet reduces body weight by removing water from body. I have lost 12 kgs in 8 months with dosage of one tablet per day in morning. Are there any other side effects apart from this?. ## Hi, Mohan! This medication is actually not intended to be used for weight loss. It contains Losartan, which is an ARB that's used to help treat high blood pressure and certain cardiac conditions, as well as Hydrochlorothiazide, which is the diuretic that helps remove excess fluid. And yes, there may be other side effects, it is processed through the liver, so there is a chance that long term use could cause liver damage. You may also experience dizziness and nausea due to your blood pressure going low. An even bigger concern is dehydration if you're removing too much fluid from your body. L... ...

My husband has been taking this in place of benicar and we wondered if this could be causing these blotches that itch like crazy. ## Has he contacted his doctor?

Losartan possible side effects
Hello I was prescribed lisinpril for about 2 months but could not stand the dry cough. I've been off lisinprl for over 2 week but still carry this nasty cough.

Losartan Pot 50 Mgs Tab Side Effects
I am taking Losartan 50 mgs twice a day .......I am getting terrible joint and muscle pain.Can it be from the meds ? Orrrrrrrrrrrrr could it be from the simvistatin ? ## Have you talked to your doctor about this? The first guess as to the culprit would probably be the Simvastatin, these statin medications are very well known to cause these types of side effects in some people that use them. This means it may not be the right medication for you to use and you may need to switch to something else. The Losartan can also cause these types of side effects, but it isn't known to do so as frequently as the Simvastatin. ## How many different medications are you taking with the Losartan? Based on information I've gathered, I'm thinking that Losartan is the primary cause of your joint... ...
