Most of us are not expert in supplements. WebMD has enough info about this supplement so you can read for further info https://www.webmd.com/vitamins/ai/ingredientmono-953/ashwagandha, and the site does note that this supplement can affect thyroid function. I could not find any info about interaction between losartan and ashwagandha but BP should be monitored if you use them together.

Lots of claims for supplement benefits by the manufacturers, and most are blatantly false, and not supervised by FDA. Clear that most of these preparations may be mislabeled regarding dosages, and some bottles have no supplement at all. Read a recent Consumers Reports issue about supplements. In most cases, you are wasting your money.
