How to use the study: print a copy of the study and bring it to your health teams to ensure drug risks and benefits are fully discussed and understood.
A recent EKG showed irregular heart beats called ectopic beats because they are incomplete beats and result in weaker heart pumping: swollen ankles. About 5 weeks ago I began seeing pulse rates of less than 60 on my finger oximeter and then in about a munute the pulse would rise to my normal rate of over 80, which is the reason I got the EKG. I have COPD and began Losartan 50mg about 2 months ago to lower my blood pressure of 150/90. I just stopped taking Losartan and will monitor my oximeter to see it the ectopic beats disappear.
On eHealthMe, Losartan (losartan potassium) is often used to treat high blood pressure. Grapefruit (grapefruit) is often used to treat antioxidant therapy. Find out below the conditions the drugs are used for and how effective they are.
