Hyzaar vs Cozaar
| Ruti
Was on a low dose Losartan (Cozaar) 25 mg but gained a little weight (have since lost it) and on a bad day at my dr. she put me on Hyzaar (much higher dose) as my pressure was up. I feel terrible on it and have had a severe gout attack. My health is going downhill despite losing 15 lbs which I am thrilled about. I hate Hyzaar and feel that it is worsening my gouty arthritis so much. What can I do?
