Comments for this study:

Pat (3 years ago):

I am a new Losartan Potassium user. I have been on this BP medication for approximately 6 weeks now. In that time, i have noticed a definite change in my bowel habits where I didn't have any problems with constipation at all. Now I have four sometimes more days before moving the bowels. Also, I have noticed a definite increase in edema, as well as a decrease in my energy level and ability to concentrate. I have a cardiologist appointment coming up on May 7 and plan to discuss these changes with him. I am definitely not satisfied with the way I feel on this drug.
