Losartan & Anxiety

Anyone have anxiety issues/panic attacks while on this med? I have started with Losartan about 2 weeks ago and have been experiencing anxiety. I take doxepin as an insomnia aid and have had to increase the dosage due to the increased insomnia and anxiety. Do this symptoms level off over time. Losartin seems to be helping my BP. ## Yes, the FDA does report anxiety, panic disorder and insomnia as being common side effects of this medication. You may also experience dizziness, headache and increased urination. Side effects are usually transient and will go away, once your body gets used to medication, but that may take about 4 to 5 weeks. If they worsen, or don't go away after that time frame, you should consult your prescriber. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Thanks. The in...

Overdose on losartan

What are the effects of overdosing on losartan, multiple 100 mg tabs? ## Hello, Mick! How are you? If you know someone that took too many, they should seek emergency medical attention. That amount could cause a fatal overdose, due to the fact that it lowers both blood pressure and heart rate, so having them fall too low could cause heart and/or respiratory failure, as listed by the FDA. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Hi. A couple of hours back my cousin took 3 losartan h tablets. What will be the consequences? Please reply back asap... The patient is age 25. ## What will happen if a person overdosed on multiple Losartan Co Unicorn 100/25 and Carloc 12.5 at one time?

what is the deference between losar h50 and losar50 tablet?

I was using losar h 50 tablets. Unfortunately my medicie by mistake changed to losar 50 is there have any problem ? What is the deference between these two tables? ## Hello, Mohamed! How are you? Losar H contains Losartan and Hydrochlorothiazide, while the Losar only contains Losartan. The combination is often used to increase lowering of blood pressure levels and you should take the one your doctor has recommended. The U.S. FDA lists the typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, increased urination and hypotension. Is there anything else I can help with? ## I have same issue as described by Mohammad . So can I take Losar 50 instead of Losar H50 ## What is difference between losar h and losar 25tablet

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.

losartan k hctz 100 25mg causing leg and foot pain weakness

I am prescribed (2) tabs 25mg carvedilol, (1) tab amlodipine besyl 5mg,(1) tab potassium chloride 8meq sr, and (1) tab losartan k/hctz 100-25mg a day for HBP. I have been on this for past 8 years. I have severe leg/foot weakness and pain. I do not have diabetes but my family Doctor said it is probably neuropathy from unknown cause. This started since the onset of the meds.

Losartan and heart rate?

Just started on Losartan , previously was on lisinopril that didnt do anything to lower BP. After 3 days on Losartan I noticed my resting heart rate in now 100+… previously was 65 to 70 on any given day.. I was told it could take 2 to 3 weeks for Losartan to fully be in my system to see a change. Will my heart rate get lower once the med takes effect or is something wrong? ## Hello, Dom! How are you? The higher heart rate could be due to stopping the Lisinopril, if you stopped abruptly and switched to the Losartan, it may have caused a rebound effect that can include elevated heart rate and elevated blood pressure. However, it is always best to check with your doctor to be sure. If the Losartan works for you, you should eventually see an improvement in your heart rate. My heart ra...

Has taken expectorant/ dexometropan over the counter medication but did nothing. Do u think it could be b/p medication or another underlying medical peoblem? ## Are you sure that wasn't Lisinopril?

My nephrologist took me of of losartan because i take lisinopril with it and he said new studies have showed that it's not beneficial or not safe, he didn't really explain it to me but that appointment was on 7-11-14 ## Hello, Jack! How are you? Yes, they tend to increase the toxicity of each other, which can be risky, in some cases. Thus, it would be best to follow your doctor's advice. Normal side effects to Lisinopril may include nausea, dizziness, headache, stomach pain and dry cough.

Accidental double dose of Losartan & Amlodipine

Hi. I took one dose of Losartan 100 mg & Amlodipine 5 mg at 8am & again the same dose I took by mistake at 8 pm. Will I be ok? ## In most cases, an occasional extra dose of this class of medications isn't really harmful, though it is best to double check with your doctor, or pharmacist. The FDA warns that the increased dosage could cause you to experience more severe side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache, increased urination, and hypotension. How are you doing?

what if i take a double dose of losartan 50 mg

What if I took 50mg of losartan and 2 hours later accidentally took it again? What can happen? ## Hi Daisy, Sorry to hear about the mishap. In my opinion I think it would be best to notify your prescribing doctor (or poison control) of what happened so that they may be able to assist you in the event of adverse reactions, extreme hypotension, etc. If this happened to me I would also probably be monitoring my blood pressure levels frequently over the next couple days to get a better idea of how my body is responding. How are you feeling? ## I accidentally took 250 mg tablets of losartan 50mg. Will I be okay? ## Can you take two Losartan 50 mg tablets at the same time or should you take it in the morning and then at night? ## I took 50 mg losartan at 11:30 am then accidentally took anothe...

I am suffering with muscle pains from my shoulders to my wrist on the left and right sides; and from the lower parts of my buttock down the back of my leg. I had been taking the above prescription for more than two weeks. I am also very sluggish, tired, and depressed. My hair is shedding at an alarming rate, the front is nearly ball.

Losartan potassium 100mg

My grandmother'so Dr. told her to double up on her blood pressure medication. She is already taking Losartan 100mg...this would mean that she would take 200mg at one time. Is that safe? ## Hi Jess19, My opinion is that if her doctor instructed her to do so then odds are it probably is safe, since he/she has likely made this decision based off your grandma's medical records and an in-person evaluation of the condition (I would hope). Furthermore, 200mgs a day is reportedly the maximum recommended dose of Losartan Potassium - So your grandma's dosage still falls within FDA guidelines. As to how she might respond or react to such a dosage, only time will tell, as everyone is affected differently by these medications. However, it may be a good idea to closely monitor her blood p...

stop taking losartan

What program should I follow to taper off and finally stop taking Losartan? ## Hello, Bob! How are you? What condition are you taking it to treat? If you have high blood pressure and stop taking it, you create the risk of your blood pressure going back up, again. There is actually no cure for high blood pressure, it can only be managed. This is especially risky, if the medication is the only thing keeping it down. Elevated blood pressure creates the risk of heart attack, stroke and congestive heart failure. Are you also watching what you eat and getting plenty of exercise? Losartan is an ARB that's most commonly used to treat high blood pressure, typical side effects may include nausea, dizziness, headache, hypotension, increased urination and headache. ## Thank you for the informat...

Losartan and osteoarthritis

I've been taking Losartan for mild hypertension. I also have terrible arthritis in my hips, knees, toes and back. I was fit before, apart from mild hypertension. I could have walked a marathon this time last year. I asked the doctor could it be Losartan, as I loved walking and now am not able to walk much at all. ## What types of symptoms are you experiencing? Can you please post back and clarify?
