      What is the dosage of Losartan that is replacing the Amlodipine 5 mg?  I came off Losartan 50 mg (took it for one year) then Amlodipine (took it for one month) about one month ago.  I still have chest pain from coming off Losartan.

    Having had dreadful side effects from many BP meds, including Amlodipine, Losartan Potassium at 50mg has been the only one I can tolerate.  An excellent pharmacist had told me that Losartan is the one BP med about which he hears the least complaints from his patients.  Just goes to prove how different we all are in our response to medication.  One of the secrets to successful BP treatment is that the drug should be started at a very low dose before being titrated up as/when necessary.  This allows the body to slowly adapt to the drug.  And another great pharmacist advised that if we have been on any BP drug for a considerable length of time,we shouldn’t just stop it but slowly reduce it, over, say, a week for each year we have been taking it.
