Losartan Jitters
Thanks for your input Tiffany. My Dr. felt I would do better on Diovan and am on 40mg daily. Doing much better.
Melody  |  July 19, 2014
How long have u been taking these meds? Have u monitored your blood pressure? When I first started mine(which was just 50mg once daily) I felt great for 3 weeks and then all of the sudden I started feeling really puny and dizzy....I started checking my BP and it was very low...now I'm only taking 25mg and feel better do far and my BP is back to normal...

I took Lisinopril and got the cough from Hell.
Tim  |  August 31, 2014
I have the same issue. I just started on Lisinopril and I wake up in the night with a terrible, strangling cough. It can take me an hour or two to get it under control. I'm probably going to need a new med.
Helena  |  April 26, 2014
I think dry cough is one of the listed side effects
April 11, 2014
I don't know if lisinopril cause you to cough,but mind start at bedtime every night. cough all nite 20 mg/12.5 mg.
DD  |  February 19, 2014
Agree with you. My husband was on it for years. They increased his dosage cough started had cough for 2 months then was taken off it. I had swollen ankles from another bp drug got taken off as bp was high BUT was also on Naproxon which can cause hbp .Was put on Lisinopril got cough, husband said it your meds but l thought l would try a month. Cough is really bad can't sleep. Horrible in public when you can't stop coughing at checkouts! So going back today to doctors as l am diving in Red sea

Losartan: Blood clots (bruises), leg pain and vertigo
Also, potassium gets very high, and black & blues (hematomas) appear from time to time anywhere in the body.
July 31, 2014
Wow, I didn't realize the leg pains that i am having daily, especially at night was because I was on Losartan. I started it just about 7 weeks ago, and that is when I started having all this new pain. Never thought about it causing leg pain. I am having problems with insomnia too.

I am experiencing the same problem. It just dont feel good it in general. I had diabetes and got rid of that. Lost a lot if weight. Tomorrow I am cutting down to 5 mg a day instead of 10. I wish that I had never been out on it. I have majors leg and joint pain. I exercise a lot and I hurt more than I did before I lost weight and got on this med.
