I'm 22 just diagnosed with hypertension. My cardiologist prescribed me losartan today I was wondering if this is a good recommended Bp medicine mine runs typically 150-160/90-95. Thanks, hope I can get some input!
No caffeine don't smoke or eat a lot of chocolate or junk food in rather healthy and active so it came at a surprise. I'm currently taking 1 losartan a day 50mg..my Bp is now in the 140-150 range it's still fluctuates higher and lower sometimes. Bottoms stay 70-85 it fluctuates right now too. I'm on the 4th day..I have been stressed lately about my health seems like slots going wrong all at once while I'm still young (22). Just hope I can get it down
They never said about the losartan ...but they did a test that showed my kidney function was normal. But cortisol would show up in my blood tests? Other than that I don't think they checked the cortisol..but we did stress test, echo, EKG, chest X-ray, and kindney urine test, and blood work
when my blood pressure is at 110 I can feel the effect of medication lowering my normal 120 the 10 points as kind of abnormal, but I don't have HBP so maybe it's good for that. I stopped taking losartan because I was almost fainting on it
