Are there any possible side effects due to the long time use of LOSARTAN HYDROCHLOROTHIAZIDE which has been prescribed by my GP for my BP.
Thank you and good wishes

All medications carry the risk of side effects.

Losartan's side effects may include: nausea, headache, muscle/joint aches and dizziness.

Sir, My mother is 79yrs old. she is getting a Electrolytes problem last 2 yrs. Sodium levels are coming down. this is 3rd year. Last 2 yrs she faced the problem in Mid May. Even in May' 2010, she has the same problem.From May'10 to till dec'2010 she used Covance 50mg for BP and Wysolone 5mg. She did not have any problem. Soduim levels are 138.4 out of 145 and hemoglobin is 10.4, this result is in mid December.

In mid Dec 2010, she got cold and cough, we went to the doctor and she normally checked the BP and she found Little bit high BP i think 152(I don't remember exactly) and Doctor prescribed Losar - H (LOSARTAN POTASIUM AND HYDROCHLOROTHIAZIDE) twice a daily instead of Covance 50 mg. we went to my native place and i did the electrolytes test in Jan'6th, i found the difference 3 points. Now 135. I have taken her to my family doctor he said Losar - H have side effects, that will reduce the sodium level so use Losar - H is in morning and Plane Losar is at bed time. So we started like that and one month completed.
Last 4 days she is sleeping (Drowsyness) and i got the doubt and Today(11-Feb-11) i have taken electrolytes test and got the result its value is 133.4 and hemoglobin is 8.3. I don't understand why she is getting every year like that. is there any permanent solution for Sodium level maintain properly.

Can you suggest me which one i can use (Covance 50mg or Losar -H) and also what eatables (diet) i need to give it to my mother because she is unable to have proper lunch and dinner.

Eagerly waiting for your reply on this. Thanks in Advance. Please do the needful help to my mother.
or give me your number i will contact you.

I have been taking Avalide 300 12.5 for the past year with good results. Now my pharmacy says they are back-ordered so my prescription has been changed to Losartan-Hydrochloroth 100-12. Is this the same thing as Avalide?

yes there is a problem and side effects also. if you use the same tablet long time your electrolytes will come down. in the body sodium mainly will effect in your body. pls ask your doctor about that and use that.
