Forgot To Take My Losartan Yesterday
BP has Been 150's/high 90's since yesterday. Take 2 Losartan a day. Also dizzy spells. Should I be concerned?
Side Effect: Although your BP is elevated above the desired range, it is not astronomically high. The dizziness may be a side effect of the Losartan. You should see your physician to possibly adjust your meds for better control of your BP and to see if switching to another agent will cause the dizziness to go away. ...Read more
I'm worried because I took my Hydrochlorothiazide/losartan 25/100 at about 6 pm yesterday and mistakenly took it again just now at 5 am. It's the only medication I take. I'm at work and have no way to measure my blood pressure. I don't have any other medi
HCTZ (hydrochlorothiazide) may make: You tired or light headed from low blood pressure. I would make sure to drink plenty of water, double the normal amount, and eat some salty foods right now until you can get your blood pressure checked. The Losartan is what will most likely drive your blood pressure down. Make sure you do not take that again for another 24 hours. ...Read more
M58, yesterday I started losartan 25mg bed time. After two hours my lips swelled mildly. I took cetirizine dihydrochloride 1tab. Have I done right thng?
Allergic Reaction: Stop taking the Losartan! This reaction may be a form of angioedema, seen with ACE-inhibitors and less often with angiotensin receptor blocker medications like Losartan. Cetirizine may help however if you have any worsening symptoms, go to the emergency room. Also, be sure to inform your doctor of this reaction to the medication. ...Read more

My BP is at 150/99 what should I do? If I have already taken 1 tablet of 50mg of losartan in the morning can I still take another tablet now? Thanks
Yes, but: Which nyquil? At any rate nyquil preparations won't interact with losartan, however, if you are hypertensive or have coronary artery disease, you want to avoid preparations that contain decongestants as phenylephrine, which nyquil severe cold and flu has. Good that you asked, always exercise caution with multiple medications, good luck ...Read more
My average BP is 142/82 but varies widely. Diastolic ranges from 66 to 104. Is this normal? I take losartan.
Good average for 69: BP level fluctuate throughout the day and is influenced by level of activities as well as our emotion. BP is probably lowest during your deepest, stage 4 of sleep. Being 69 and average BP 142/82 is good. If you feel well in general and keeping active, I would not recommend change at this time. Follow up with your doc regularly. Good luck. ...Read more

Yes!: Although most salt substitutes consist of a potassium salt, and although Losartan is considered a potassium sparing agent, many patients can nonetheless use both without developing dangerously high serum potassium levels. It would be wise of doing so to notify your PCP and check a serum potassium level both before and then once after initiating this substitute therapy. ...Read more
Night time: There's no mandatory time but many people find that taking meds at bedtime works because they remember to take them as part of their bedtime routine and side effects are minimized because the peak blood levels occur during sleep. Alternatively, some people like to split them up: one in the am, one in the pm. ...Read more

Bp runs 155/100 but I take losartan 25mg which keeps at 117/64 but coffee raises it to 145/80. Better med that keeps it stable for coffee drinkers?
Several things +-: One simple solution would obviously be to try some decaf....Problem solved. You do get a touch of caffeine even in decaf. There are some good half-calf options out there as well that would be a decent meet in the middle. Monitor your pressure from there. If not improved there are plenty of options to adjust in terms of BP meds. ...Read more

Maybe: Different people react differently to different drugs. While some people get good results with smallest dose of a drug, others would need more to have the same effect. As for lisinopril 10 mg and losartan 25 mg, both are starter doses, your doctor and yourself would be the best to judge efficacy, taking in consideration factors such as other drugs, other conditions, side effects, etc. Best wishes ...Read more
Rasp ketones: Raspberry ketones are promoted as a weight loss aid and metabolic stimulant. There is no scientific evidence for benefit.
