I have been taking Lisinopril with Chlorthalidone, as I my potassium was depleted when I was taking Triamterene and had a stroke. The hospital physician put me on Lisinopril with Chlorthalidone and told me I would not lose potassium with this combination. Lisinopril has caused cough and is annoying so my GP switched me to Losartan. Is it safe to take Losartan and Chortahlidone, and will this combination still allow me to retain potassium?

Hello, Glo! How are you? I am sorry about the stroke you suffered.

Yes, there should not be any problem, the Losartan has the same type of action as the Lisinopril on adding potassium.

I had a similar problem with my potassium constantly dropping dangerously low and we found that Losartan's relative Candesartan works very well for me to prevent it and keep it at good levels.

Are there any other questions or concerns?

My new DR changed my script from Diltiazem to chlorthalidone 12.5mg oral and losartan oral 50mg because my pulse range was regularly between low to mid 40s with a couple 38s, to usually just under 60s, aka bradycardia. My MRI and nuclear stress test showed nothing wrong with my heart, I'm 68. I'm hoping the diltiazem was the cause of the low H-rate. Have you seen this issue before and how will the new meds affect my pulse? I'm currently waiting for my previous DR in another State to send my old records to see what my normal heart rate was a couple years ago. Moved from Florida to now living in Chapel Hill NC. Thank you...
