Not directly: There are always exceptions to any case, but a "paradoxical" rise in blood pressure is difficult to explain with Losartan as the culprit. With that said, everyone reacts differently to medicines. Chances are; however, that the Losartan was inneffective, something else was working against the Losartan, or the Losartan had not yet taken effect by the time of blood pressure measurement. See PCP.
