GRHL (3 years ago):

Is there a difference between Losartan dizziness and the dizziness caused by "crystals in the ear"? Can I just stop taking Losartan and see if my dizziness goes away? When I went to see my doctor, she did not do anything to see if there is a link between Losartan use and vertigo.
