User Comments:

For High Blood Pressure “Male, 53, regular exercise, healthy diet. Started losartan (Cozaar) 2 weeks ago due to high blood pressure. Dropped the blood pressure first day, but still is high – before taking BP was 160’s / 110’s , now it’s 140’s / 90’s.Noticed frequent urination – like every 15 minutes. I canceled an international vacation because of this. Then came the anxiety at night. Never had anxiety this bad – ever. Finding myself locking the doors, checking to make sure they are locked multiple times. Slight confusion and short term memory problems. Yesterday bought a $1500 large screen tv that I really did not need and does not even fit on our tv stand. Numbness in one thumb. Dizziness – almost fell backwards off of stool at restaurant. Giving it one more week”

For High Blood Pressure “Male 56. I started taking Cozaar just 4 days ago, to add to my current regiment of diuretic and betablocker, as my BP was climbing. After only 4 days taking it, my BP went from 170/102 down to 129/69, and I am only on a 25 mg dose; smaller than even what the manufacturer recommends.This med works…..and fast. NO side effects for me.”
