Comments from related studies:
From this study (5 months ago):
Anixety and depression began after Losartan dosage was increased to 100 mg.
From this study (6 months ago):
Not sure what causes the anxiety.
From this study (7 months ago):
I have had Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and Fibro Myalgia, Wilsons Syndrome and Hashimoto's Disease for 22 years. I suffered an injury to the pelvic floor this last summer and am now experiencing spikes in blood pressure, anxiety that awakens me suddenly from sleep and sets in shortly after breakfast and general non-specific depression. I am wondering if one or more of these meds might be causing these three symptoms or contributing to any of them. Thank you.
