I was given Losartan 50 MG by my cardiologist and it did not seem to do anything so she increased it to 100 MG. She said she would rather max out the Losartan before adding another medication. The 100 MG did not seem to do much either as my BP was a little higher than I would like. I went back to her and she added Hydrochlorothiazide 12 MG at my request. I had been on this drug earlier in life and it seem to work for me. My BP dropped significantly to 120/60 or less. I asked to be taken off the Losartan or at least lessen the drug and neither of my doctors would go along with this. I decreased it myself and my BP is fine. I am getting severe shoulder, arm and wrist pain and I wondering if anyone else has had this trouble with the Losartan or HCTZ???
