Been taking 100mg Losortan along with 10mg of Amlodopine for some time now and the side effects I can no longer deal with. These pills actually made matters worse. Dr. took me off Amlodopine but truth is I had to STOP both. Slowly killing me with side effects of both. How long before the pills effects are completely out of my system? Taking Hawthorne and Grape seed extract actually works better without nasty side effects.

I've been on 150 mg Losartan for quite a few years. I find it's no longer effective in controlling my bp. I'm curious why the dr. Took you off it and what were the side effects you were having.

Hawthorne can take months to work...for me it helped the systolic but not the lower, the diastolic.

My brother just started on losartan and I have yet to hear from him.

I'm currently on bystolic, hopefully an improvement from metoprolol which had a laundry list of side effects, esp. for me being a guy.

Re: "how long does it take for Losartan to get out your system"

According to the half-life calculator here on MedsChat, Losartan has an estimated half-life of 2 hours. This means that 50% of the active dose will have become inactive/metabolized/excreted 2 hours after taking it and so on and so forth.

However, from what I've read, metabolites of Losartan can also stick around for up to 6-9 hours; hypothetically, I don't think these metabolites play an active role with the remaining dose that's still in your system and affecting blood pressure, but you should probably double check with your doctor or pharmacist just to be certain.

I hope you get around to feeling better soon!
