    My insurance company insisted over and over that I try this instead of the brand name Benicar. (Losartan is NOT a generic for Benicar!) My BP did not go down, but my pulse did. Down in the 40's! Headached the entire week I tried it, felt horrible. Drug is ineffective and useless, I am going back to Benicar.

    Losartan didn't lower my bp alone, I also have to take just 5mg of Amoldipine, but together they work fine. I don't know if I could blame water retention or tossing and turning to either drug, but possibly that or just aging.

    I have experienced no side effects, and the drug seems to work well in reducing my blood pressure.
