Common Questions and Answers about Losartan half life

I called my doc up and he prescribed me not Losartan but valsartan, which is a similar drug. He put me on a very light dose (80 mg/day), about half of what someone my body size would be taking in Dr. Dietz' study on adolescents this fall. Fast forward 6 months - I had my follow-up echo last Monday. Thank the Lord - no growth. All my numbers were "identical to last time," according to my cardio. That is unusual because my aorta had been growing up until then.
Stopped Lisinopril for a little bit and felt much better- unfortunately my blood pressure went a little up. Then my PCP substitute it for Losartan- have been taking this drug/25 mg/ for a week and feel extremely dizzy and nauseated. The cardiologist suggested to cut Carvbedilol in half/so now I am taking 3.125 twice a day instead of 6.25 and my chest pain almost disapear. I don't know if Losartan can cause this or just switching drugs my body needs more time...?

First of I'm 22 years of age, male about 6'2 kinda muscular 228 pounds, and pretty active. I've been diagnosed with hypertension and was put on losartan 50mg/hctz 12.5mg by my cardiologist when my blood pressure was running about 150-160/80-90 consistantly about 2 months ago. When I first started taking it worked pretty decent in a few days it was around 130 range/80, I stayed active I played pick up basketball, walking/jogging and working out occasionally.

My daughter is now 4 months old and after her i didn't have any more migraines. In the last week and a half however, I have a constant headache. it's there when i first wake up, and I'll take medicine(ibuprofen or tylenol) and the headache will go away for about an hour or if I'm lucky 2 hours and then it's back. Nothing has changed in my life except for the new baby but she's 4 months old and this has only started recently?
You mention breathlessness but believe me, without this drug you will feel vrery uncomfortable and be gasping for air. Taking its half life, 2.5mg lasts just over 24 hours and I forgot to take my pill one morning. In just 2 hours I was panting like a horse just finished a race and felt terrible. Within 20 minutes of taking the medication I felt comforable again. When being held back by a strong beta blocker, keeping fit is quite difficult.
Hey I'm 22 years old I'm currently taking blood pressure medications(losartan 100mg/hctz, spirolactone 25mg) it's decently controlled averaging about 135/75 resting. I have LVH(left ventricular hypertrophy) size of 1.5 ......I up in sports, I'm in good shape I exercise everyday for 40 mins...I am half African American. I'm wonder what is the probability I can live a normal life with these problems so early on? How rate is it for me to have this, this young?

I had HBP after the treatment but not so high and I fixed it with a change of style life (mostly aerobics). Now, I am trying with my doc to find the right meds , beside aerobics. I wonder if there is any connection between the high blood-pressure and the HCV, I was stage 2-3 and grade 2-3 before treatment, I am now 4 years after treatment.. I would be pleased for any good information.
Given you problems ask you doctor about Metoprolol and Atenolol beta blockers, both cost only pennies a day to take. I now use Atenolol and like its longer half life.
I'm 22 years old, Male, currently taking 100mg Losartan/Hctz 25mg for hypertension, briefly I'm 6'3 230 pounds, relatively active I've played sports most of my life (basketball, football, workout).. diagnosed 6 months ago. Could this be the medicine symptoms or something serious? I can be sitting down after a day of exercise and I can feel (and hear) my heart beat through my head, the temple regions specifically.
He retrieved my printed notes from the previous practice and there in the notes was half an A4 page highlighted in red from 10 years ago. I had however been told that there was "Nothing wrong with my heart", during many visits to various GP's and consultants. I even suggested to one GP that I thought it might be an aortic root aneurysm causing the pain(also unexplained hoarse voice), to be told "No, they are as rare as hens teeth!".
Hello doctor, I am a 24 year old male who takes Losartan 100, Toprol xl25 and Hydrochlorothiazide 25. Recently a psychiatrist prescribed me Lexapro 10mg and Xanax 0.5 twice daily to hopefully treat the anxiety/panic disorder that has made my life very difficult the last few years. However I am concerned as I suffer from high blood pressure and racing heartbeat and now I am afraid to take the Lexapro as I fear its going to worsen my not so good blood pressure and heart rate.
I am 39 yrs old with well controlled hypertension since 7 years.(On losartan 100mg).My sleep pattern has disturbed over the past 5 months as I get up after 4 hours seep and am very active.It then takes time for me to go off to sleep again.Sometimes I have frequent wakening in the night and get up with adull headache.There is no stress that could have disturbed my sleep pattern.recently about 2 months back I started having PVC's(premature ventricular contractions or missed beats).
I take 1 losartan in the afternoon and a verapamil before I go to bed. But this morning I took my verapamil and coreg and it has stayed at about 125/75 all day without taking anymore meds at all. Now,at 3 am,it's 145/75. I realized my BP was very high those two times because I got a very bad headache and checked it and sure enough,it was at stroke level. I have had a very bad headache for 2 days but my BP has never risen to stroke level during that time.
Do I have any limitations in my life because of these palps? 11. Is there anything I should watch for that when these palps happen make them more sinister? 12. How do I know my palps are just the benign ones and haven't become more than just benign? I am sorry, you don't know how hard these are to live with...thank you so much..
life expectation of infected hepatic cells can be as long as a half to one year - when therapy is maintained this long after achieving UND, by this time all infected cells should have died out and SVR is achieved. (The recently suggested option to reduce SOC to 24 Weeks for RVR patients with GT 1 seems supporting this model.
Was taken off the Warfarin and Amiodarone and told my AF is permanent and ablation unlikely to work either. Half the time I feel kind of OK ... then I get a few 'bad days' when I feel so dizzy and faint with mild tinnitus in both ears and edema in both feet/ankles. I just lie on bed most of the time until it passes. The cycle repeats every week or two with no clear pattern or obvious trigger. I am 59. obese, ex-smoker and ex-drinker but now eat lots of oily fish salad and fruit.
You have less than 11 days (04/17) until you see your doctor. You might try cutting the tab in half (pill cutters found at most drug stores). Try that for a 5 days as you continue to test and monitor your blood glucose. If your numbers remain in the normal range stop taking Metformin the last 5 days, but don't stop testing. Hopefully your glucose meter has memory where it stores up to two or more weeks of test results. Take the meter to your doctor and show him/her your results.
93%), the second phase slope is primarily determined by RU loss rate, gamma (half-life 1.6-1.8 days), rather than by infected cell loss rate, delta (half-life 1.9-13.9 days), as in previous model. In 1 patient with a lower effectiveness (99.6%) the second phase is slower and determined by the loss rate of infected cells, delta (half-life 8.7 days).
Over the years of recovery and reading about others, seeing others recover the main thing I have learned is that everyone's life is better without being a slave to Tramadol. You might be stuck and scared right now, but you can make the decision to get yourself off the hamster wheel of Tramadol dependency and even addiction. You don't have to live that way. There's lots of people here to help.
i really do not understand a lot of this but I must admit I was a lil hurt this morning when I was thinking here I get clean I accept my past I find joy and a amount of peace I have lost all the weight drugs and alcohol have put on me I have quit smoking I had introduced myself to myself for the first time in my life.. I was so afraid I would not like me.. I was damaged I was used I was not of value.. well none of that turned out true and I like me I never thought I would... Now this wtf...
and 125 lbs (thin and slightly muscular) I'm half Japanese. My blood pressure is 115/69. I work out 2-3 times a week without lots of cardio (mostly do yoga and isometric exercises).I recently quit smoking (but when I did smoke a pack would last almost a week so approximately 3 cigarettes a day). I guestimate that I smoked for approximately 15 years. I was diagnosed with a heart murmur at around nine years of age. The doctors said then that it was mild and wouldn't cause any long term effects.
I am down to 75, with tinnitus caused by this med. I cannot live with this tinnitus, would rather have a quality life, albeit shorter. I shall just have to risk having BP , nothing else I can do. My internist was a pharmacist, so he knows the meds, and my reactions. Would love to talk more about this.
I agree with tickertock....you're going to make yourself sick with worry!! Four (4) pvcs in a row is not a big deal. Remember, in a normal heart, a run of pvcs is no more significant than a single pvc. I know pvcs are frustrating. But, they are not going to kill you. I've had pvcs for 25 years, singles, couplets, triplets, salvos, bigeminy, you name it....and I'll probably always have them. Some days/weeks/months/years are better; others are worse.
If your focus on PVCs is truly causing this much stress in your life, I would look into alternative ways of dealing with your anxiety such as counseling or other stress reduction therapies. You have a lot going on and the PVCs give you something to focus on, which may be a maladaptive coping mechanism due to the fact that they are going to probably come and go.
(for lack of a better word) and that it's NOT a life-ending event in and of itself. I am completely healthy, no other medical conditions to speak of. I could stand to lose about 25lbs, I smoke and I drink coffee. I have no other signs/symptoms of a cardiac nature. I usually handle my stress well (I think that's where the cigerettes come in, so "well" might not be accurate). I think when these tests are complete and if all's well, I will not dwell on this anymore.
By choosing to wait and not treat you are playing Russian Roulette with your life. If you wait too long to treat there is no going back. I know this from personal experiences and it is not something you would ever want to have happen despite side effects and adverse events from current treatments.
