Comment from: NO COZAAR FOR ME, 55-64 on Treatment for 6 months - 1 year (Patient) Published: January 15

I was one of the <1% who encountered cognitive abnormalities from this medication. Became virtually non-functional in the ability to complete complex tasks at work. Fortunately, my Family Physician encountered a teaching physician at Baylor College of Medicine who said it might be Cozaar. Took 3 - 4 months to get back to near-normal, but a whole chunk of one year is missing from my memory.

i am also taking hctz and diltiazem - the combination is working very well for my BP and no side effects noted- I was once on Lisinopril -the cough never went away and I eventually had such bad wheezing and trouble catching my breath I was hospitalized over nite - so although lisinopril is a cousin of cozaar beware the lisinopril cough - it is a cheaper generic but the cough is not worth any amt of money.

I believe it is prescribed at a higher dose than is necessary, resulting in unnecessary side effects.

I have been on Losartan for 3 months and have lost about 60% of my hair. Doctor denial, drug company lies. If you work the internet the truth is there. You have to work to find it.

Comment from: 25-34 Female on Treatment for 5-10 years (Patient) Published: September 08

I've been taking the blueish/green pill for at least 7 years with no problems. Since Merck has switched to the white pills, my blood pressure has risen and anxiety has increased. Unfortunately most pharmacies do not carry the blue pill anymore because of "suppliers." (it's not clear whether Merck is phasing out the blue pill or not). For some people, the white pill is not equivalent to the green pill which Merck and pharmacists should recognize and readily offer both rather than restrict production to white only. Looking at other posts, this seems to be a problem for others as well.

After trying number of drugs for last 10 years, for the first time my BP came down from 150/100 to 120/80 with losartan 50mg. I feel much better with losrtan 50mg than Indral or other drugs.
