I was taking Lisinopril for about 5 years and had a horrible dry cough. My doctor took me off that and prescribed Losartan. After recovering from the shock of the price for this med, I realized my dry cough was diminishing after a week. I sleep better because I'm not waking up during the night coughing. Very effective med but I wish the price was more reasonable.

Was on lisinopril and had bad cough so Dr. switched me to losarten and have had nothing but problems with it I itch all the time and no energy at all and have gained weight and can't seem to lose it and I exercise and try to eat right most of the time, swelling in feet, don't like this drug but is effective with lowering my BP.
