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.
