Hello. : Hello. I can't diagnose your symptoms but problems with headaches, feeling dizzy, fainting can be due to low blood pressure. Problems with fainting, headache, feeling weak, dizziness, being tired can be tied to dehydration. Problems with dizziness, feeling weak, being tied can be due to anemia. It wouldn't be appropriate to try to provide you with a diagnosis in this format, but I would recommend that you be medically evaluated to determine the source of symptoms. Would recommend a complete blood count as well as tilt blood pressure and pulse. That is all I can offer you. Take care. ...Read more

Began losartan (25mg) when BP = 131/82. Lowered it to 120/74. Year later = 114/65. Feeling lightheaded. Could it be diastolic at 65?

My suggestion would be to either halve the pill or just stop and see your doctor to have it rechecked. ...Read more
