Switched to this medication at the urging of my insurance carrier. The results have been equal to my previous. The only difference I have is that I have developed a chronic dry cough.

Comment:
I was taking Diovan/HCT for about 18 months. The insurance company wanted me to switch my medication due to the cost. My doctor put me on Losartan/HCTZ. My blood presure at times is slightly higher than when I was taking Diovan/HCT, but overall it is in an acceptable range and my doctor is happy with the numbers. I have no side effects from this medication.
