After turning 60 this year I have had 1 ailment after another. Tore my rotator cuff in April, developed systemic muscle stiffness and aches after the tear, and recently fell and broke a bone in my ankle and re- hurt my rotator cuff. Through all of this my blood pressure has continued to climb. GP increased my Losartan HCTZ to 100 mgs. Started to get a backache and AM diarrhea. Went back to the GP , decided to put me on plain losartan without the diuretic. Backache has improved, but still have diarrhea every AM and stomach gurgling most of the day. I should mention I was on 25 mgs for years and never had these problems. I should also mention that I'm very depressed and on an anti depressant. Does anyone know if there's another drug out there that lowers blood pressure and doesn't cause these symptoms?
