Is anyone taking Losartan Potassium for their high blood pressure, please? I have been taking Losartan 50mg for 3+ years, with various other drugs being added along the way, all with intolerable side effects so all stopped apart from the Losartan with the dose being increased to 100mg at the beginning of the year.
?Since March I have experienced two UTI's, each with different bacteria showing up in the culture. It is very unusual for me to experience UTIs, let alone two in such a short time, and I am wondering whether the increased dose of Losartan is to blame. As with so many of the blood pressure medications, my body didn't like some of the drugs prescribed for the UTI's, with one landing me in hospital with drug-acquired Clostridium Difficile!!
?The medication leaflet does mention UTI as a rare side effect, but the acclaimed Mayo Clinic site lists bladder/urine problems in the list of "More common" side effects.
I've had an ultrasound which showed up a grey patch so now waiting an appointment for a cystoscopy and obviously worried about the result.
?I would be really interested to hear whether anyone else has had a similar experience whilst taking Losartan, particularly at the 100mg dose, please.
