Have changed from Amlodipine to Losartan as they gave me swollen ankles and dizziness, have been on Losartan for 4 month but have many side affects. I have a constant muzzy feeling, transient dizziness and a queasy feeling all of which come and go but feel extremely tired when experiencing the feeling. I get the feeling my GP is fed up as I keep getting side effects . Does anyone else get these side effects?

    Amlodopine gave me a racing heart beat, very tight chest, extreme fatigue and very faint at times.

    Losartan has given me a lot of side effects also. Extremely tired, muscle weakness, feel like can hardly stand up I'm so weary. Feels like someone sitting on my chest, tight and sore. My normal resting heart rate is 55-60 and it's up to 129 on this drug.

    Also been on Losartan for 4 months. Came off Amlodopine because of swollen ankles, changed to

    Perindipril but had permanent dry cough. Now experiencing dizzy fainting spells, headaches and stomach

    Pains. Trying it for a bit longer before going back to Doctor as feel he will be running out of options.
