    Since I have been on this drug, I have started doing something that I haven't done since I was a baby and that is wet the bed. I had to start using a Urinary Incontinence Condom Catheter and bag. So, I have made an appt. with the Dr. and in the meantime, I have went back to my old Diltiazem, it makes me tired but I don't have to sleep with a bag.

    I had to stop taking Losartan. I had severe muscle cramps in my buttocks and legs. At times I could barely walk. I will just be glad when it is out of my system so I can return to normal. Pain everyday.

    I have a panic attack and white coat hypertension. I expected that my BP would go up to 160/100 but I only got 120/80 in physician's office.

    I am not sure what this is doing. When I first took it, I was downed out all day, pumping 90-105/55-60. After three days of vegging I cut the script in half. For about a week I was waking in the 125/60 area. After two weeks, I started to climb waking in the 130s one day, the 140s the next, then the 150s. Today I woke at 166/100! Go figure.
