Bladder infections with Losartan

Posted , 3 users are following.

I have only been taking Losartan for 8 days and it burns when i urinate and i hurt by my bladder up into my back. It also seems like i have to go more often. Is this normal with this medicine? I have had alot of side effects from this medicine and i was wondering if anyone else has experienced alot of side effects from Losartan.

    I don't think those are directly attributable to the Losartan. ACE/ARB drugs may actually help your kidney function somewhat, but also possibly cause some fluid retention, which normally would just about balance out. However if you have some other condition I suppose this might uncover it on one side or the other.

      Hi, Carolyn, i just looked back, 9 months ago discussion, i mentioned the hair loss, this has grown back so i had forgotten, lost hair in patches, also i mentioned chest tightness, breathlessness, that has gone, though it took a while. the prob with each med is that there re a number of side effects, one has to choose the least bad one

    no, only on it about 2 months, not sure exactly, somewhere on this site i discussed it with others, it was the worst medication i have been on, mainly stomach/abdominal issues (well known for the ARBs except i did not know), these took months to fade after stopping, chest pain, itchy skin, esp ears, and the beginning of heat and sunsensitivity. Maybe i was getting these, i dont know, but they are all on the websites, there were a whole lot of other symptoms, it was all annoying as i was told the initial symptoms would go and to stay wiith it, they did to some extent, but then the more persitant symptoms started, hope your situation sorts out
