It actually isn't that the medication loses effectiveness, but that your body gets tolerant to it. Your body can get used to anything you use for a long period of time and it will eventually stop working as well for you.

Learn more Losartan details here.

There's really no precise time frame, it can vary from person to person. Some people can take the same medication in the same dosage for years and it will keep working, but some people will need to switch to a different dosage or medication after just a few months.

And since we are talking about your blood pressure, you also need to be aware the certain lifestyle habits can also play a role and may be making it so it's going higher than usual. For instance, if you aren't getting as much exercise as you used to, or if you've made a change to your diet and are taking in more sodium.

Are there any other questions or comments?
