Losartan: Losartan should be taken daily and its pharmakinetics is for 24 hours. This can be take at bed time.
Dr. Charles Turck

Yes and yes: Usually losartan is indeed taken once daily (24hrs) unless directed otherwise, with no time restriction of when to take it. However, to help remember, it is good to take it around the same time each day.
