I have recently been put onto Losartan, after developing a Ramipril cough. After some adjustment, it has been agreed with my GP to put my dosage to 50mg taken at night.
However, the last few days I have been feeling very woolly-headed when moving around. I have now taken a few readings at various times and I think I may be getting a drop in pressure when standing. Sitting pressure is showing 130/78. Standing straight after the sitting reading is give my 118/70. Should I go back to GO?

I had to move my Losartan dose from morning to just before going to bed because of the woolly head.
It does not seem too bad when I first get up - it seems to worsen when I go out and about. Thanks for your advice.
I think I will go back to GP as I can't function properly.
As I think you know, she said no, because if the pressure isn't there to pump the blood straight away and you get up from the chair, toilet etc. very quickly, there won't be enough blood getting to your head and you'll pass out.
Sure enough, when I got home, within days, I jumped out of bed quickly one day and went to open the curtains, and the room began to spin and I blacked. Luckily for me, I slumped backwards against a fitted wardrobe and gently slid to the floor.
It was a long time beffore I made any sudden sharp movements after that.
I tried taking it at various times of the day and also spiliing the dose. It is the one that has given me no other side effects.
