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... ...

I am having sensitivity (pain)in my right breast area since taking this drug for one month i take it every other morning also developed a cough ## I am also on losarton and now I have this hacking cough. But not to worry my doctor just emailed me that there is no chance that this medicine could cause my cough and if I wanted to go off it that would be fine and let her know how it turns out.

Good luck. ## Losartan can definitely cause that cough, it does happen to quite a few people that take it and that side effect will not wear off, so i... ...

I would like to know if Losartan Pot Tab has side effects such as breaking out in red blotches similar to hives. 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?
