Losartan Potassium 50 Mg Manufacturers

WaterBaby Says:

I got this generic drug from WalMart last year manufactured by Merck. It was amazing. Then they switched to same generic drug manufactured by TEVA Pharmaceutical (from white oval shaped pills in a bottle to little green pills in cardboard package), and they didn't do a darn thing. It was like not taking anything at ALL. Did Merck stop making the generic version? It used to have the monopoly on Cozaar before the generic version of losartan potassium came out.

Hello, WaterBaby! How are you?

The generic that any given pharmacy carries can change regularly, depending on what manufacturer was offering the cheapest price, at the time they needed to restock their supply.

I am, however, not aware of Merck having made a generic, they are just listed as making the name brand.

I have been taking the 50mg Losartan from Torrent Pharmaceuticals for awhile now and they work great, so you might want to ask your pharmacy about trying theirs.

The FDA classifies this medication as an ARB that is most commonly used to treat high blood pressure and certain cardiac conditions. Its typical side effects may possibly include nausea, dizziness, headache, stomach pain and increased urination.

Is there anything else I can help with?

I found that Losartan is now being made in 3rd world countries. It worked well for me too until they started making it in those 3rd world countries. Those countries ruined Losartan. You don't know what you are getting. Terrible.......

Is park manufacturer still manufacturing losartan? If so, where can I get this medication filled? Most pharmacies have switched to that oval green large pill for high blood pressure.

My son and I are taking Losartan 50mg. My pills are a white oval w/ 114 and a score on the reverse & the bottle says that the manufacturer is Torrent. His are a green oval w/ E and 46 on the reverse side. Are these both the same and interchangeable?
