Losarten generally has few side effects. Is he taking any other meds. What are the side effects?? Go to Drugs.com and look up exactly the one he has and enter all other meds into their interaction checker. Then discuss with your team.

Whenever it is believed that a drug is causing serious side effects the drug can be stopped and the prescriber’ office should be called right away to be informed so that a follow up visit can be scheduled.
