I had taken losartan50/hctz 12.5 for 10 years, In recently years I suffered dry coughing and bad running nose allergy. I found out this is the side effect of losartan. Cutting the dose to half, changing to a water pill.. did not solve the problem. Over this holiday I developed bronchitis and was quite ill. I had very bad coughing, losing voice, sinus infection, nose bleeding, etc. I stopped taking Losartan to avoid further complications. I notified my doctor that I will check my blood pressure if the record is not over 140-90. I will keep the Losartan off. What else can I do? ## Hello, Muchin! How are you doing?

I take Losartan 100 mg in the morning. ## It is stated that you should not take it, if you have high blood pressure, unless your doctor says it is safe for you to do so, combining them can increased the dizziness, and drowsiness you might experience, according to NIH reports. However, I did not find any dangerous interactions listed. Are you on any other medications? Generally, according to AMA reports, your getting sleep is very important to help control your blood pressure.

Anyone have anxiety issues/panic attacks while on this med. I have started with Losartan about 2 weeks ago and have been experiencing anxiety.

Losartan Potassium 50 Mg Tab Side Effects

I am taking Losartan 50 mgs twice a day and I am getting terrible joint & muscle pain. Can it be from the meds? Orrrrrrr could it be from the simvistatin? ## Have you talked to your doctor about this? The first guess as to the culprit would probably be the Simvastatin, these statin medications are very well known to cause these types of side effects in some people that use them. This means it may not be the right medication for you to use and you may need to switch to something else. The Losartan can also cause these types of side effects, but it isn't known to do so as frequently as the Simvastatin. ## How many different medications are you taking with the Losartan? Based on information I've gathered, I'm thinking that Losartan is the primary cause of your joint and mus...

I take blood pressure readings in the morning,noon & evening. My readings are almost always above 150/85. About one month ago my doctor also put me on atenolol 50MG to be taken one in the morning & one in the evening. I haven't noticed any improvement! The last ...
