The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, increased urination, hypotension and dehydration.

Can I take cb1 weight gain pills?

I was wondering if I can safely take CB1 along with prescription drugs? ## Can I take CB 1 pills even I'm taking a Blood Pressure medicine like Losartan ? ## Since it is an over the counter supplement that is not FDA approved, there have not been any studies done regarding its safety when combined with prescription medications. The main issue here is do you really need to gain weight? As in, are you underweight, right now? Since you mentioned Losartan and high blood pressure, it is very important that you know it is not safe to gain excess weight, when you have such a cardiac condition, because extra weight is very taxing on your heart and circulatory system, so it could worsen such a condition, and cause new ones to occur. The American Heart Association has some great information a...

how to stop taking losartan

I had taken losartan50/hctz 12.5 for 10 years, In recently years I suffered dry coughing and bad running nose allergy. I found out this is the side effect of losartan.

Losartan and hoarseness

It’s not everyday but feels like it’s getting worse. ## I have been given losartan combo with HTZ for several years for Blood Pressure. At age 70 voice was suddenly barely there. At 72 I see no hope of regaining voice. Run to a good ENT DOCTOR who will look at your throat and vocal chords. Determine soon reason for throat issue.

Losartan 25 mg Switching Brands Caused Problems

After taking Solco Healthcare Losartan for many years, with no problems, I switched to another less expensive brand, Aurobindo. I soon began to notice my bp reads were significantly higher and, indeed, I too developed a cough. After 2 months of this I switched back to my Solco Losartan and, thankfully, my bp reads have once again stabilized and my coughing has ceased. In all fairness, I cannot say for certain that my cough was caused from the Aurobindo med, I only know the duration of my cough was during this time period. ## I took Aurobindo losartan 50 mg. for three to four weeks and experienced the same symptoms as you, but my cough still persists. I had tried Teva's losartan and that drug was totally ineffective. Just wanted to say "thank you" for posting that Solco's...

Magnesium with Losartan

I currently take 50 mg losartan daily. Would taking magnesium tartrate pose a risk? ## Nothing specific was found with regards to Losartan and Magnesium interacting with one-another, so it should be okay [1]. What I did read, however, is that it is not recommended to take Magnesium if you consume alcohol regularly. "Excessive ethanol (e.g., alcoholism) may result in increased urinary excretion of magnesium. Avoid high intakes of ethanol while taking magnesium salts." Source: [1] UCLA Health Drug Interactions Checker, always double check with your doctor or pharmacist.

Losartan and Tylenol

I am on blood pressure medication (Losartan) and I want to take a Tylenol for a headache. Can I take it? ## According to the University of Maryland Medical Center (umm.edu / drug interaction tool), there are no interactions listed between Losartan and Tylenol (Acetaminophen). This does not necessarily mean that no interactions exist. However, I haven't found any reason why it wouldn't be safe to take together in my own investigation. If in doubt still, I would encourage you to contact your doctor or pharmacist just to be on the safe side. Hope this helps! ## If I take loser tan can I take Tylenol for a headache ? ## Is there a drug interaction between losartan and tylenol pm? I would like to take tylenol pm for pain at night.
