Comment:
I have been on Losartan 100 mg for a month (had been on 50 mg for 2 years) but have not seen any reduction in my blood pressure. My only concern is that the prescription stated "Lorsartin 100 mg" and I was given Losartin Potassium 100 mg., and hope that I don't retain the extra potassium as I did when I was on diazide which was potassium sparing.
