Losartan And Shortness Of Breath

Comments Submitted Says:

I have been taking losartan for a few months and i am experiencing shortness of breath, swollen nasal passages and dry throat, it’s starting to scare me and when I wine to the doctor to ask her she said it can’t be from the losartan and have gave me an inhaler which has not helped. Anyone else have this problem?

HI...Yes. I was on Losartan for a long time and it gave me these symptoms also. Many symptoms. You can search side effects/Losartan from several sites. I took them down from every site. Losartan damaged my kidneys, however it stopped when I got off. It gave me severe edema and throat congestion, nasal congestion, insomnia, pneumonia and ruined my gut causing food senstivities. My Dr. also didn't believe me and I told him I wouldn't take it. Found out I wasn't even hypertensive and don't need the meds. I found another Doctor.

Yes, those can be side effects of Losartan, but they aren't common, so your doctor might not be familiar with them, other side effects may include nausea, dizziness, weight gain, and frequent urination.

It could be that this just isn't the best medication for you, so you might need to try something else.

What type of doctor are you seeing, just a GP, or a specialist? Are you on any other medications?

Funny enough, I am suffering from those symptoms also. I also have terrible backaches, dizziness, insomnia and nausea, especially when I wake up in the mornings. I made an appointment to see my doctor regarding getting another blood pressure meds.
