It can be treated: You are correct, the diastolic (bottom number) blood pressure is too high. However, we do not make a diagnosis of high blood pressure with just 1 reading.

If that doesn't work you may need medication. ...Read more

Is 25mg losartan(cozaar) a low dose?  My blood pressure ranges 150-130/90-100 and doctor put me on low dose.  Worried about BP going too low.

Take the Losartan: It sounds like you need to take the Losartan. It is a good drug to start with for high blood pressure.

I would recommend rechecking your blood pressure with your doctor about 6 weeks after starting the Losartan and call if symptoms of lightheadedness occur. You should be fine. ...Read more
