I don't have a long time history with this med. I have taken it twice and have been awakened both early mornings next day with muscle spasms in my legs and feet so bad I was screaming in pain.

Comment:
Taking generic losartan hctz 100-25 for about 3 weeks now and at first I thought there were no side effects until I realize that I am becoming a very angry and impatient person. Avalide was making me dizzy and light headed - doctor switched. I just looked up the side effects and saw anxiety but I am getting close to physical violence. Anybody else feel this way?
