    What does Losartan treat?

    Losartan is a medication that is prescribed to treat high blood pressure or hypertension. This is an Angiotensin Receptor Blocker (ARB). It reduces blood pressure and this works to prevent the occurrence of strokes, heart attacks and kidney problems. Your doctor may use this to treat other conditions as well.

    Dosage Instructions

    Follow the Losartan dosage prescribed by your physician. The dosage could vary based on individual patient requirements. This can be had with or without food. If you are pregnant or planning to get pregnant, you must inform your doctor. This must not be used during pregnancy as it can harm the unborn baby. Always follow your physician’s instructions or go by the directions on the prescription drug label.

    Missed a dose?

    Take it immediately once you remember. In case, this time is closer to the next dosage, skip it and get back to the prescribed schedule. Never take a double dose unless specifically instructed by your doctor.

    Overdosed?

    Don’t waste any time and seek immediate medical attention.

    Drug Interactions

    Drug interactions must be considered before starting to take any kind of drug. Drug interactions might happen either when Losartan is taken along with another drug or with particular foods. To prevent any kind of negative interaction, make sure you inform your doctor of any drugs you are taking including non-prescription medication, OTCs, health supplements like vitamins, minerals, herbal medicine and so on which may interfere with the effect of Losartan.

    It may interact with:

    • Digoxin 
    • Fluconazole
    • Indomethacin
    •  Lithium 

    It may also interact with certain non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs. This is not an exhaustive list though.

    Appraise your doctor of any medical conditions that you are suffering from and your family history of medical ailments. It’s important that you do not stop or start taking any medicine without the consent of your physician.

    Possible Side Effects

    Drug interactions must be considered before starting to take any kind of drug. Drug interactions might happen either when Losartan is taken along with another drug or with particular foods. To prevent any kind of negative interaction, make sure you inform your doctor of any drugs you are taking including non-prescription medication, OTCs, health supplements like vitamins, minerals, herbal medicine, drinks with caffeine and alcohol, illegal drugs, smoking habits and so on which may increase the effect of Losartan.

    Some of the side effects are dizziness, light-headedness, stuffy nose, sore throat, back pain, diarrhea, insomnia, stomach pain and headache. This is not the complete list though.

    In case, there is a change in intensity of side effects or if any new side effects develop, make sure you consult your doctor.

    Losartan Potassium 100mg is not equal to Irbesartan 300mg. Losartan Potassium and Irbesartan are used to treat hypertension, but though they both meant for the same use, these 2 drugs are different drugs. Please get confirmation from your physician since your physician will prescribe either Losartan potassium or Irbesartan based on your health conditions.
