    My doctor started me on this when Valsartan was recalled. The initial dose was not effective and he raised it to 100mg. I experience extreme fatigue. I get very dizzy upon standing. Tinnitus is constant. I now have bursitis in my hip and shoulder, but I don't know if it is related. On top of this my blood pressure which initially plummeted, is now higher than ever. My doctor is a sweetheart a ... Show Full Comment

    IMPORTANT: Beware of Blood Pressure Medication named LOSARTAN...PLEASE READ... So, here is my 'unprofessional' opinion on why this happens to millions of people and why all doctors refuse to attribute any of these symptoms to the Losartan. I think that the acctual medicine is not what causes the symptoms per say. I strongly believe that it is the additives and impurities that are put ... Show Full Comment

    I went on Losartan 50MG about 7 months ago. I told the cardiologist that it wasn’t doing anything and she increased it to 100MG.

I wanted to decrease or stop the Losartan but neither of my doctors would agree to that. My BP with the diuretic was 120/60. The doctor to ... Show Full Comment

    I took Losartan 50 mg for many years. I started noticing my muscles were beginning to ache, especially in my right arm. I also noticed my blood pressure began to not respond to medication anymore. My Cardiologist then doubled my daily dosage to 100 mg daily. The pain in my muscles tripled. My right arm muscle feels like it is being torn down, as if I had been lifting weights. My shoulder muscles a ... Show Full Comment
