Losartan Jitters
Thanks for your input Tiffany. My Dr. felt I would do better on Diovan and am on 40mg daily. Doing much better.

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...

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.

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.
