Losartan blocks the actions of certain natural substances that tighten blood vessels. Losartan facilitates blood flow and allows the heart to pump blood faster.
Losartan is a tablet and should be swallowed whole. You should take it with or without food, usually once or twice daily. Losartan will be easier to remember if you take it around the same time every day.
Your doctor will likely begin you on a low dose and increase it gradually as your body adjusts.
If you are giving this medication to children and they cannot swallow the tablet, consult your doctor or pharmacist. Losartan liquid can be prepared by your pharmacist.
Losartan can lower blood pressure, but it does not cure it. Your blood pressure will decrease over the first few weeks, but you might start to notice the full effects of the medication within 3 to 6 weeks. Even if you feel better, continue to take the medication. You should not stop taking the medication without consulting your doctor.
As your body adjusts to the medication, you may experience dizziness or lightheadedness. If these effects persist or worsen, contact your doctor immediately.
If you experience any side effects such as fainting, irregular or slow heartbeats, or other symptoms such as weakness or muscle weakness, tell your doctor right away.
Losartan can be used to prevent or treat kidney disease. However, it is not recommended for people with severe kidney problems. While you take this medication, your doctor will need to monitor your kidney function. If you notice any changes in your urine or other signs that could indicate kidney problems, please inform your doctor immediately.
Losartan can cause side effects such as nausea and vomiting.
Tell your doctor if you have any allergies to losartan or its ingredients, or if you have other allergies. Losartan could contain inactive ingredients, which can cause reactions or other problems.
Discuss with your doctor all aspects of your medical history, including liver disease and severe dehydration, before you begin taking losartan.
You may feel dizzy from this medicine. Do not operate machinery or drive a car until you feel confident that you can safely perform the task.
Losartan can increase potassium levels. Before you begin taking potassium supplements or salt substitutes containing potassium, consult your doctor.
Before you have any surgery, share with your doctor a list of all the medications that you currently take.
Losartan should not be used during pregnancy, attempt to be pregnant or breastfeeding without consulting your doctor.
Drug interactions can alter the way your medication works or increase your chance of side effects, so disclose to your doctor the list of any prescription, non-prescription or herbal medicine that you are taking.
Certain medications may contain ingredients that can increase your blood pressure, or worsen your heart disease. Ask your pharmacist for information on how to safely take your medication.
