I just need a little bit of advice. My husband is hypertensive, and has been taking 50 mg Losartin daily for about 2 years. Recently (for about the last 3 weeks) he has been hearing a noise that is driving him insane. He says it sounds like a truck is idling outside the house. He mostly hears it at night, but sometimes during the day. Since hearing this noise, his blood pressure has been >140/100 almost all of the time, even when he takes his meds. I don't know if the noise could be caused by his blood pressure (I can't hear the noise, and he says it's so loud he can't hear the TV over it sometimes.), but it's either causing the BP to be high because he's stressed out over it, or the BP being high is causing the noise (which is still going ever higher because he can't sleep and is stressed out). My question is, can he take more of the meds to help with his BP until he can see his doctor? His appointment is this Thursday, but I am really worried about his BP being this high constantly, especially considering that he is having so much trouble sleeping. Is it normal for a person to suddenly stop responding to losartin? This whole thing has me tied up in knots. I am so worried that he's going to have a stroke.
