Comment:
Losartan is terrible! I have only been on it a week, but am having terrible sinusitis, unbearable headaches, runny nose, cough, and I can't taste one darn thing. High blood pressure is nothing compared to the side effects of this drug. I Decided today it wasn't worth the side effects and will ask doctor for something else.

Comment:
Although this is an effective medication to treat high blood pressure, it is dangerous when taking it with NSAID type of over the counter medication for pain. By mistake I did not remember that I needed to be careful when taking ibuprofen with this medication. Unfortunately, I used it a lot over this month due to headaches and started bleeding in my urine.

Comment:
My doctor switched me to Losartan from Lisinopril because Lisinopril gave me a nagging dry cough. 40 mg. of Lisinopril kept my high blood pressure in check so my doctor started me off at 50 mg. of Losartan and this does did nothing. My blood pressure went back up to the 165 plus range in about 1.5 weeks so he upped the dose to 100 mg. For the first month 100 mg. kept my blood pressure in the 140’s ... Show Full Comment
