Avatar n tn Losartan alone, also known as Cozaar does not have a diuretic. But Losartan with HCTZ is also known as Hyzaar. Don't assume yours has the diuretic in it. Ask the pharmacist.
Avatar f tn Hallo there -anyone and everyone. Is there any reasons to prefer or take losartan above olmesartan or the olmesartan above losartan. Person taking these is african, 57 years, female and oh, my mother.
Avatar m tn m a very active person), and a high one of losartan would be a bad combination of the two drugs. Also what is the difference of losartan and valsartan?
Avatar n tn Yes, I have a history of SVT (supra ventricular tachycardia). I have had 2 ablations to treat it. My last surgery was in 2012 and my heart has been fine. My cardiologist felt my heart was still beating too fast so he put me on Carvedilol and I've been on it since then - it helped me feel much better as far as my heart rate. Now that I have been fainting, my Cardiologist decided to try switching my Carvedilol to Toprol XL and he wants me to try the Florinef.
Avatar n tn I am a 42 year old female and have a 4.5 cm TAA. Root is 3.0 cm. I have a familial aortic aneurysm rather than Marfan's. How likely is it that Losartan would help me? I am currently on 25 mg of Atenolol and 50 mg of Losartan. I am concerned that 50 mg Losartan is inadequate. For tissue protection/tgf beta inhibition do I need at least 100 mg per day?
Avatar f tn They started me on losartan 50 mg and amlodipine 5mg. And for some reason it seams like it is not going down, so I went to the ER and they increased my amlodipine to 10mg and adv me to contact my primary dr that following week. Called the dr that next week and he increased my losartan to 100 mg and amlodipine to 10 mg, 1 each per day. However it seems like my bp is still hanging out around the upper 180's.

Avatar n tn People often take sleeping meds and anti depressants that have hcv or are treating. I don't know a lot about the lisinoprill, but I read about a small study that Losartan (for high blood pressure) may reverse fibrosis. Your doctor should know about your hcv and your meds, especially if you are treating. http://ihealthbulletin.
Avatar m tn As an experiment(with GP consensus), I doubled my dose of Apotex Losartan from 50 to 100 mg a day for one week. No change in BP. I am baffled. GP does not have a clue either. I want to try going back to Cozaar. Sound reasonable?

Avatar n tn I'm light headed, vision narrows, anxiety when driving beyond 45mph. Doesn't happen when i'm a passenger. I have to slow down when it occurs,sometimes hitting the breaks nervously. Feels like im gonna pass out. Im on losartan for high blood pressure. Dr's have done blood work, eye doctor didnt see anything wrong, sugar levels are in normal range. I dont have to be thinking about any stressful things for it to happen. Any suggestions?
Avatar m tn I was on losartan for a few months. I don't think that my bp was consistenlty high. I think what was going on was that it was very up and down and it was making me feel pretty bad. But losartan which is a third line for bp was the first thing that they put me on. And I don't think my bp was that bad. I have had elevated renin/aldosterone studies and low potassium in the past.
Avatar m tn Hi, besides high blood pressure losartan is used to treat many conditions. Losartan may be used to treat hypertension, isolated systolic hypertension, left ventricular hypertrophy and diabetic nephropathy. It may also be used as an alternative agent for the treatment of systolic dysfunction, myocardial infarction, coronary artery disease and heart failure. Your cardiologist may have started it for the heart failure, in spite of it causing lower pressures, it is useful.
Avatar f tn and 145 lbs and still not done growing. His Dr. is communicating with Dr. Dietz at Johns Hopkins in regards to Losartan. Does anyone have any input on this drug with a teen? Or does anyone have a child in this type of situation? Any input would be comforting to me.
Avatar f tn Started losartan (Cozaar) 50 mg.
Avatar f tn losartan back to 50 mg.
1008841 tn?1293598960 Has anyone heard about a study with Losartan, a BP drug, on people with HCV, with moderate Fibrosis? Its suppose to shrink them, so the liver can heal. I was wondering how I could get on a study like that? I'm Type1a, a non-responder.
Avatar n tn If you want to go into your next appointment equipped with info, do a search for Hal Dietz and losartan on Google. Losartan has been shown in mice to heal aortas and there is anecdotal evidence that it does the same for humans. A worldwide clinical trial is now underway.
Avatar m tn I have microproteinara and hypertension. My creatinine is 1.1 and gfr is 72. Does losarten protect the kidneys in nondiabetic people as well?
