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?

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.

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...

Constant coughing

My mom had a change of b/p medication to losartan 100/25 hctz. After 2 weeks of taking it she developed a wet and dry cough with the need of clearing her throat. No sputum would come out.
