Losartan, safe?: The answer to your question is "Yes". Losartan (L) is a drug from the angiotensin receptor blocker class and has a similar action to Lisinopril, affecting the renal angiotensin activating system and has fewer side effects. To find out the reason the switch was made, ask your physician (P) if you have not already done so.
