I haven't had any other problems with Lisinopril besides the cough and I am scared to change meds and take the chance of worse side effects. I am just wondering if anybody has any thoughts on Lisinopril vs Losartan to help me decide if I should change meds. Thanks!!!
My GP put me on Lisinopril last year but switched me to Losartan after the Lisinopril failed to help. The Losartan brought my BP down a lot with a 50 mg daily dose. I was down to 110/70 and even 100/65 at times. I even got light-headed when I stood up quickly. The GP said this was normal and good. He likes my BP to be well below 120/80. So far so good. I was getting the Losartan from Walgreens as a 30 day supply.
Generally Lisinopril is the drug that causes a cough. Losartan does not usually cause problems. Lisinopril sometimes agravates asthma because it seems to cause relaxation of the esophageal musculature, causing acid to flow upwards at night when you lie down, that in turn, migrates to the trachea. You should report the side effect on the FDA site.
I have been taking a low dosage of lisiopril for over a year now and have experienced a dry cough, my primary care just switched my meds from 5 mg lisinopril to 50mg losartan is that the correct amount for the new med?
I took Lisinopril for 20 years, it was last 20 mg. I switched to Losartan 1oo mg. I now feel dizzy all of the time and weak. Doctor changed me because of the cough I was getting from Lisinopril. Personally I hate Losartan it makes me feel awful. If I had my way I would not take either/ I have not had any heart problem yet, and I hope I never do. Also If you change your WILL to leave everything to your best friend who is also a best friend of the doctor.. .. does this seem like a bad idea ?
my daughter tried lisinopril snd she experienced coughing and her doctor switched her to losartan potassium and I was wondering if the two medicines are linked.

I am on losartan 25 mg daily, lisinopril/hctz 20/12.5 daily and metroprolol 50mg at night. does this combination interfere with each other.
Hi, Im already taking Norvasc 5 Mg and Lisinopril 12.5 Mg for my Hypertension. My Dr. wants to bring in another Blood Pressure pill ( clonidine) If i spelled that right. Do any of you all take this combo?? Just wondering if all of these made your blood pressure drop too low? Thanks for input!
I'm treated with lisinopril to reduce aortic root stress. My blood pressure is usually about 110 over 68. No valve stenosis. My cardiologist is watchful but otherwise not immediately concerned. At what point should I be concerned about replacing the aortic root?
After my bare metal stents were clogged and I almost got another heart attack, a DES was placed inside those two. Since then I have been having chest pains. I am currently on Plavix, Aspirin, Simvastatin, Lisinopril and Carvedilol/Coreg/. 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.
I am back on Lisinopril since Losartan did not do any good. My BP became higher- between 131 and 146 over 89/92 so the dizziness is definetely not because of the law blood pressure. Carvedilol is the one giving me problems so I wanted to find out: since I had MI but not heart failure- is is absolutely necessary to take beta blockers? One of the doctors ordered renin test and the results came today quite high- 28.2, the ratio though is ok.
Since how long you have been anti-hypertensive? You can discuss with the doctor to change the lisinopril to telmisartan or losartan which are better molecules for the protection of the kidneys. Also, if you are diabetic, then the blood sugars need to be controlled well. Avoid ibuprofen as far as possible as it might affect the kidneys as well.

I was put on BP medication in January 2012. I started off with Amlodipine and Lisinopril and the Lisinopril darned near killed me. The prescribing doctor WOULD NOT take me off it so I just stopped taking it and made an appointment with another doctor. I have been taking 12.5 mg of Metoprolol and 10 mg Amlodipine for about 3 months. I have COPD and something was aggravating my breathing problems. I went to the doctor yesterday and he took me off the Metoprolol and put me on 100 mg of Losartan.
The Metoprolol and Amlodipine kept things in fair control but Metoprolol aggravated my already low functioning lungs. Now I am on Losartan and at first I thought it was working. But maybe that was just because I still had the Metoprolol in my system. In any event, once again my breathing function is worse. I started off on Lisinopril with a different doctor. He could not take me off it or prescribe anythng different, so I quit taking it on my own and went to a different doctor.
Anyone taking cozaar? I am supposed to start 50mg in the morning. My lisinopril was making my throat itch. I have tried benicar and azor in the past but they made my pulse shoot up and I couldnt breath. I am not sure of cozaar is in the same class. My blood pressure just started to be on the higher side, usually 130/98 at rest. When walking around and taking BP right away it's usually 160/110. I am wondering if I need a bit of a beta blocker.
I developed high blood pressure this year and at first was put on lisinopril - taken off because thought it could be the culprit put on losartan 100 mg and 25 mg of hydrocholothiazide. Cough still persists taken off losartan because 1 in 1000 develop cough and put on amlodipine besylate 10 mg. A chest cat scan ordered and am awaiting results. Everytime doctor listens to chest it is clear no wheezing etc.. She gave me an albuterol inhaler that does little good.
They initially wanted to put me on Lisinopril, but I was on that previously and I had a terrible, nagging cough the entire time. I've read that ACE Inhibitors are preferable to ARBs, though, when it comes to CHF. Should I try another ACE, or would all of them be likely to cause a cough since the Lisinopril did? Or is the Cozaar good enough? (Some places even suggest taking an ACE along with an ARB...is that a good idea?) Blood Thinners: Should I be taking one? (And is low-dose aspirin safe?
My cardiologist told me of this and I was, scared confused, so I came home googled and found it was very serious. I am now on losartan 100mg/hctz 25mg, and at night I take spironolacone 25mg. My blood pressure runs anywhere from 135/80-148/92 on the meds. I cannot use a beta blocker, because late evening my resting Heart Rate gets to low 50's. But during the day runs anywhere from 80-60 resting. Typically get 80 more often after a full meal.
Doctor Said I was healthy. I was put on Losartan 100/mg -Hctz 25mg shortly after my Bp was over 140/80 a couple visits to the doc. It now runs 135/75 when I check it usually sometimes 127, or 142 just depends I guess. I exercise, I eat pretty healthy, I'm young and I'm really wondering how to deal with this? I'm doing all I can, the doctor has me on meds at 22yrs old, I know of all the deadly outcomes of high bloodpressure and how it increases with age. How do my readings look?
Before we decreased his sodium intake, his BP was going as high as 200/110, but his BP is still often 160s/90s. He is on Lasix, Verapamil, and Losartan. He has been given potassium, too, so his heart rate hasn't been racing like it was. What should he do from here?
Potassium chloride should not be taken with some blood pressure medications such as losartan, lisinopril, and some others. Are you on any medication? If yes, write them here and I will try to check for you if they are OK to take with potassium chloride.
(Already on Coreg 40 mg, Losartan 50mg 2 x day, Adalat 30 mg, and Lisinopril 10 mg. Can't take diuretics as they cause electrolyte imbalances quickly). I was given Ranexa for angina and told to increase my Adalat to 60 mg, but the increase causes my bp to drop too low during the night (80's and 90's over 50's and 60's) and I struggle to keep from passing out if I go to the bathroom. Angina has returned today (on Ranexa for three days). How serious is the elevated LVFP?
I was on 6.25 carvedilol and still am. Taken off lisinopril early 2013 due to cough. I was prescribed 50 mg Losartan which I started in January after my doctors visit in which he noted the elevated pressures and BP. My at home readings have been fine all year, running about 115/70 HR of 60), except for the occasional pressure a little above 130/90, and these have always occurred when I feel stressed.
Hi, If your BP is still not normal with lisinopril you may need dose increment or addition of another anti hypertensive agent like amlodipine or losartan. How high is your BP? High blood pressure is a risk factor for stroke and cardiovascular diseases and can cause terrible headaches and dizziness and muscle weakness. Please consult your doctor as soon as possible. Meanwhile take a salt depleted diet. Take care!
By the way, Pat, regardless of whether you have Marfan Syndrome or not, you might Google "losartan" and "Marfan Syndrome" to read articles on this topic. I don't think losartan is the best ARB, but it's the one being used in the current studies. All ARBs seem to work, some better than others. Efficacy is usually dose-dependent.

I was told back in May that I likely suffered from Neurocardiogenic Syncope after an echo, nuclear stress test and Holter came back normal. I was taking Lisinopril for HBP but just switched yesterday at my doctor's recommendation to Toprol XL 25 mg (generic form). Do you think these measurements are abnormal? I am starting to think perhaps they compared the recent test with the one I had back in May where it was measured at 2.6 and that's why they are saying it's enlarged.
