  • From this study (6 months ago):

  • I did not have heart palpitations before I started taking 50mg 'losartan potassium' March 2013 and heart palpitations began late June 2013. Palpitations seem most severe within four hours of oral administration. August 2013 I had very extreme palpitations and a feeling of a huge knot in my throat. Reading blogs suggest the drug caused the palpitations.
