From this study (4 months ago):
I was also taking Atenolol while on Losartan Potassium. I was taken off this drug because my doctor thought this was causing the insomnia. I have been off Atenolol for 10 days and still can't sleep. Could the Atenolol in conjunction with the Losartan Potassium be the problem. Should I also get off Losartan?
