Hi. Are there certain foods to avoid while taking Losartan potasssium 100mg? Thankyou.

Hi. Are there certain foods to avoid while taking Losartan potasssium 100mg? Thankyou.

Yes and no: Losartan is a blood pressure medicine that can have the side effect of hyperkalemia (too much potassium). So if you have problems with your potassium being to high, then you should eat a diet that is low in potassium. But I see that you are also taking hydrochlorothiazide which can cause you to have low potassium. Have your labs checked regularly and adjust your potassiium intake as needed ...Read more

I've been on 100mg Losartan for the past year. I've had to stop taking them due to losing insurance. My BP is up to 150/100. When is this an emergency?

Symptoms: High numbers are only an emergency if accompanied by symptoms like chest pain, severe headache, difficulty breathing, or confusion. That being said letting your blood pressure run high will over time put you at risk for stroke, heart failure and kidney failure. Best to find a clinic that works on a cash basis or sliding rate, and make an appointment for as soon as possible. ...Read more

Can Losartan cause migraines?

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.

When my pts think they might be having a side effect from a med, I tell them the only solution is to see what happens when they stop it. Talk to your doc.

Good Luck.
