Losartan potassium

Common Questions and Answers about Losartan potassium


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 I am experiencing much higher glucose levels since starting 50 mg Losartan Potassium in January. Anyone else with similar experience? This was done as my echo showed elevated pulmonary artery pressure secondary to my heart conditions (post MI, with both diastolic and systolic dysfunction).

Avatar n tn For at least 3 years I have been taking a 25mg Losartan potassium tablet and a 40mg Furosemide tablet every morning. I went to a new chemist this morning and he said I should never take the 2 tablets together as they will cause low blood pressure. I went to the doctors last year for a check up and complained of low blood pressure ( I took a list of my last 20 readings) but was told it is nothing to worry about!.
Avatar f tn Losartan blood pressure supplements comtains ingredients of losartan potassium. It commonly includes side effects like high blood ressure. dizziness, breathing difficulty, asthama. Try to consult other doctor if possible.
Avatar n tn However moderate-to-high dietary intake of potassium, especially salt substitutes, may increase the risk of hyperkalemia in some patients who are using Losartan. So you should not use potassium-containing salt substitutes or over-the-counter potassium supplements without consulting your physician. It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided.
Avatar n tn I do not want to take a bp med, i read that potassium bicarbonat, and bananas, are just as beneifical as taking Losartan ,I know it sounds silly, but I just do not want to take any more meds. I have been doing fine for 5 years after stents, take fish oil capsules, magnesium and vitamin d, recently started 5 htp, don't all these help to keep my arteries from blocking anymore?also take other supplements like co-q 10, b complex.
Avatar f tn 56 year old caucasian female, post-menopausal, healthy diet, inability to exercise more than mildly (so just regular activity, frequent walking, everyday tasks etc no problem, full range of motion for non-exertive stuff), obese but not morbidly, taking losartan potassium daily for mild hypertension (a decrease from quite high blood pressure 2 years ago), no other medications, stable in all respects...
Avatar f tn Am I being too restrictive of sodium and potassium intake? What do you mean? Cramping can be caused by dehydration and an imbalance of sodium and potassium blood levels. Diuretics can can cause this. Many diuretics decrease potassium in the blood. This can lead to low potassium levels in your blood. There are "potassium-sparing" diuretics that don't cause this problem. These include: Spironolactone (Aldactone) Eplerenone (Inspra) Triamterene (Dyrenium) What diuretic are you taking?
1118724 tn?1357014191 Is increased blood pressure the reason? Potassium will not affect the liver. But elevated as well as too low potassium can be bad for the heart and cause arrhythmia. 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.

1491405 tn?1288440189 I am being proscribed LOSARTAN POTASSIUM for high b.p. Is this a diuretic?
Avatar n tn Too strong of a dosage can cause diarrhea which can cause potassium to drop low. Losartan - potassium (Cozarr) is used to control hypertension and might be a better fit for your daughters condition as the side effects are similar. I hope this helps.

16467414 tn?1448308529 Did your doctor mention to avoid high levels of potassium while taking Losartan? Too much potassium is called Hyperkalemia and it can be extremely deadly if not treated. I am trying to come off Atenolol after 7 years and a few weeks ago a doctor put me on Losartan Potassium and did not tell me that though I asked if I should avoid anything. I found out what Hyperkalemia does to you the hard way. It can kill you if levels are very high, almost did me in!
4705307 tn?1447973922 Losartan potassium 50 mg 1x daily. Along with Atenolol 25 mg 1x daily, which I have been taking for almost 10 years. Of course these are to control my B/P. Which it seems, to be working. Initially the drop was concerning to me and today it appears things are rebounding. And yet as with everything else relative to the inner workings of the human body, everything fluctuates. Including my state of mind.

Avatar n tn Side effects of losartan potassium-hydrochlorothiazide tablets such as dizziness, myalgia, muscle pain, weakness and restlessness may be managed with dose adjustment. Cutting the pill may result in unequal doses for each medicine and may not be as effective. It is best to take the medicine as prescribed or inform your attending physician regarding the symptoms that you experience for proper management. Lowering the dose to 100-12.5 or 50-12.

Avatar n tn Losartan also may cause a persistent cough, increase serum potassium, impotence, and angioedema. Losartan may reduce kidney function in some patients and should not be used by patients who have bilateral renal artery stenosis (narrowing of both arteries going to the kidneys). Rare cases of rhabdomyolysis (muscle breakdown) have been reported.
