The generic form of this medication did not work at all. Ended up in the ER with tachardia. Prescribed this because the Atenolol I was taking has a shortage with all 6 manufacturers, but was very effective.

My doctor put me on Losartan for about 3 months, and it was working OK, then one day I was driving and lost all hearing completely for about 30 seconds. I panicked and went to the ENT doctor, who told me that it was a rare side effect for Losartan to cause hearing loss, and that I would eventually lose it all permanently, no matter if I stopped taking the Losartan immediately. Since then, (about a year) I have lost a great deal of hearing. I have qualified for hearing aids, and an amplifier for my phone. I also have repetitive tinnitus, and a constant feeling of itching in one ear. Drives me crazy! Just research the meds that doctors love to dish out. Really know what to look for in side effects. This one is a real bummer.
