Losartan 50mg lowers my blood pressure to 110/69 but causes hand tremors. Writing is very difficult.

I have taken Losartan Potassium 50mg. daily for about three years with good results and without any problems. Recent blood test have shown very high Potassium levels. (noted precaution) A a low Potassium diet has not brought them down. Physician has switched me to another drug, Amloipine 5mg. daily.

Comment:
I take Losartan/HCTZ 100, 25 MG. After 4 months, started passing out - 4 times in 3 years. Each time, different circumstances. I figure it has to be Losartan. Mouth and sinuses dry, feel nauseated if not taking on full stomach. Never told doc since I felt it was a coincidence. After the 4th time of passing out, it's time to try something different, even though it greatly decreased the BP.

Comment:
I ended up in the ER with BP over 200. I have been on this medication for about a week and my BP is now in the perfect 120/80 range. I have no side effects that I can tell. But I feel alot better than I did !!
