Losartan Potassium Warnings And Recalls
Losartan and cough: Losartan (l) is not known to cause a cough, commonly. A cough that is non-productive of sputum, especially at night, may be due to gastro-esophageal disease (g). G may present with heartburn after meals and it often presents with a cough at night. Ask the doctor who prescribed your l for more information and what other tests to do, or drugs to take, to diagnose and treat g.

Time of onset: Drugs such as losartan (L) may take as long as two weeks to work, as they remodel the endothelium of the arteries making them more compliant which lowers the BP. That process takes about 2 weeks to reach full effect which is why one may not see a BP lowering effect of L sooner than that. You should ask you physician if you should be on 50 mg of L twice a day. Good luck.

I am on labetolol 100mg, the ARNP just added losartan 25mg. Is this a dangerous combination as they both raise potassium levels?
Potassium: Increased K is not usual with labetalol, it is not non sp BB, so increased K is not an issue. (there is an error in the entry in Wikipedia). Losartan can cause increased K, but you are on low dose and if kidney function is normal, there should be no issue. All patients on ARB should have their kidney function including potassium checked and time to check can be 1-5 weeks, based on medical historySee 1 more doctor answer
Is it OK to drink gatorade once in a while taking losartan potassium? I know certain drugs increase potassium and gatorade has potassium in it.
Probably ok: The amount of potassium in a glass of Gatorade is minimal and is unlikely to affect serum potassium levels, especially if kidney function is normal. Sugary drinks like Gatorade may not be all that healthy, though. Check out the ingredients: water, sugar, table salt, carbohydrates, electrolytes (110 mg sodium, 30 mg potassium, 93 mg chloride), high fructose corn syrup, artificial colors, glucose,See 4 more doctor answers
