Hi all - I wonder please if I may ask the help of anyone with personal experience of the BP medication 'Losartan'. I am a 79 year old male, having been on various BP medications over the past 30 years. Over the past 18 months I have been prescribed a daily dose of 1 x 25mg of Losartan. The only side effect I seem to suffer from is feeling so sleepy during daytime, even after a good nights sleep. I am normally quite an active sort of person, walking daily and generally undertking various jobs around the home, including gardening, painting and decorating, etc., etc. But this sleepyness often steps-in to hold me back. Even driving the car can become very tiring, causing me to eat sugery foods to keep me awake. Any thoughts on this would be greatly appreciated. I am hesitant about approaching my GP as I feel that there is no other BP medication for me to try, having been on all the others at various times in the past?
