Hi all just wanted to get some options. Doc put me on 100mg Losartan Potassium which has no affect on lowering my blood pressure which still averages around 140/98-99
I've been taking the pill for about 3 months now. Since being on this pill I have dizzyness (wait) Extreme dizzyness and feeling off balance like Vertigo, Migraines and severe headaches, my taste buds changed (changed the taste of everything I ate for hours afterword giving things a bitter, metallic taste)
I developed tinnitus in my right ear (Constant high pitch Noise) , I've also developed anxiety which i NEVER had before and have been having panic attacks, depression, and a sense of overall nervousness
My vision is off and this is on top of the vertigo, I have been more sensitive to light and sometimes feel like my eyes are burning. Sometimes makes it hard to drive.
If I stare at a computer screen or TV too long my eyes and head start hurting and get very nauseous.
I have told my doctor and he says it cant be the pills (not unexpected doctor response) and I told him that symptoms for High blood pressure pills dont just appear overnight and these have been increasing over these 3 months
I did stop taking the pills for a couple of days and noticed the dizzyness and off balance wear off quite a bit.
My doctor has set up an MRI to just rule out anything else just to be safe.
Has anyone else had any bad side effects with this medication. I will be of course getting new meds as this is not for me
