    I am a 62 year old female and taking Losartan (100 mg) and Amlodipine Besylate (10 Mg) and have noticed blurred vision especially in the morning when first awaking. I am also experiencing much urgent urination at night disturbing my sleep. Just curious if anyone is experiencing this. The doctor can't even figure out the urination problem can we tried some medication that hasn't worked.
