I've been on Losartan approximately 2 months and now I'm struggling to recall words. Also, noticed increase in joint pain. I have joint pain in my left index finger but notice soreness in my right hand ring finger since being on Losartan.
Yes Mesirm, I have noticed I just sit there when a conversation came up and wanted to join in but was literally lost for words so I just listened.. weened myself off Losartan and went back to normal.. Please realize these drigs ALL have side effects that sometimes aren't listed.. It's not you it's the drug....
Yes, it was very gradual and got worse and worse me. The more memory I lost the less I was able to recognise what was happening, until one day I was in a taxi and I was struggling to remember why i was there. I suddenly had a revelation that is was the losartan that was causing it and stopped immediately. Within three days most of the memory issues had disappeared. However, we are a little over two years on from that and my memory is still not what it was.
