Losartan....med mix-up

Posted , 5 users are following.

Med bottles changed at pharmacy. Been taking 100mg instead of 50mg for almost 3 weeks. Was told to go to ER.....scared it's going to go high since I dropped to 50mg this morning.

    It may have been wiser to drop firstly to 75mg for a few days rather than dropping straight back to 50mg, monitoring your blood pressure each day along the way.  You really have to go by how you feel.   But try not to stress about it - plenty of people have an increased dose of a BP medication and, if it doesn’t agree with them, they are switched back to the lower dose without any problems, and that’s speaking from personal experience.  It may be a good idea to just check it out with the pharmacist for reassurance if you haven’t already done so.   Good luck!

    Use your faith, i do this myself i do not always take the 15mg, but i go to 10mg and 7mg sometimes. Its best not to go to high because it makes side effects more likely.
