Hi iam male 64 years old. Ive been on losartan 100 mg for around three years. Ive put on weight get terribe backache tiredness itchy skin. Never had these before i started tablets.
i ride 12 kms each day and on a diet but no real weight loss.
Recently ive started taking losartan 50 mgs at 9am and 50 mgs at 9pm.
my bp is stable at neither higher or lower than 130/ 74 pulse 97 each day. I take my bp three times a day.
My question is can i reduce the losartan to 50 mgs a day instead of 100mg a day?
ive heard that Benicar is a similar drug with no weight increase and also one drug called Dinoval. Thanks. Dave.

When I was put on losartan I was never given a reason and also noticed a difference when I cut back.. it seemed to do nothing for my bp.. just another drug added to make the doctor think he actually was doing something.. sometimes less is better.. my current physician didn't say a word when I told him I stopped the insanity of taking losartan....By careful though losartan interacts with some other drugs and don't stop suddenly.. best to talk with your pharmacist
