Comment:
I was on the generic form of Cozaaar, Losartan, for 3 1/2 months. The side effects I suffered included blurry vision, decreased sensitivity (fingertips most notably), dry skin, hair loss, water retention (which led to increased blood pressure), tinnitus, muscular pain and a metallic taste in my mouth.
