Can Losartan Cause Diahrhea
Haven't heard of it:
I prescribe a lot of Losartan, and I haven't had anyone (that I know of, anyway) who got migraines from it. However, medications are a common cause of headache.

Not directly: There are always exceptions to any case, but a "paradoxical" rise in blood pressure is difficult to explain with Losartan as the culprit.

See PCP. ...Read more

Yes, side effect: Losartan is a medication in the group known as ARB's or A2RB's (angiotensin 2 receptor blockers). They have swelling (angioedema) as a common listed adverse reaction.

GERD and losartan: I would talk to your physician (p) about starting a proton pump inhibitor, such as prilosec, to see if your reflux (r) problem is resolved with its use. Losartan-like drugs have very few adverse effects and r is not commonly known to happen. The fact that you had symptoms of r on Lisinopril is evidence that your r is not related to any BP medication. Speak to your physician for more information. ...Read more

Not from Hyzaar (losartan and hydrocholorthiazide): Hyzaar (losartan and hydrocholorthiazide) is a combination of a diuretic/water pill and an angiotensin receptor blocker/arb which is used to lower blood pressure. The constant leg swelling may mean you are retaining fluid and need a higher dose of diuretic.
