My mom says she wants to die she just took 2 losartan potassium 100mg when it says only take one is there anything bad that can happen plz?
losartan potassium 100mg is for her blood pressure plz help me
Asked by Syreeta Rouhoff 4 months ago.
Hello, As you say, losartan lowers the blood pressure a little bit, making it normal again if it was too high before. Taking two will probably lower her blood pressure twice as much, but on the other hand her body will be used to losartan and it will not cause her body a big surprise. Signs of low blood pressure are feeling faint, your skin going pale and clammy, and your pulse getting fast. You may want to faint if you stand up suddenly. Someone who is determined to die, usually takes loads of tablets all at once, not just one extra one. So hopefully your poor Mum wasn't too serious about dying. Of course we don't know what is behind it all. I think you should ask your Dad and your relatives what should be done. If your Mum passes out or faints, you should get an ambulance for her, I think. The extra tablet should have worn off by tomorrow, in my humble opinion. I hope this is of some help. Best wishes, Belliger retired uk GP Answered by Neomi Tunstall 4 months ago.

What are the melting points of losartan and losartan potassium?
are both same or different?
Asked by Minna Spangle 4 months ago.
Losartan and Losartan potassium are different compounds and have different melting points. Losartan potassium differs from Losartan by have one hydrogen atom replaced with a potassium atom. The Drugbank database treats them as the same thing, but it is looking at them from the point of view of medical effects, which are the same. But their melting points will be different. m.p. for Losartan = 183.5-184.5 °C I don't find a melting point for Losartan potassium. Answered by Lamar Makanani 4 months ago.
losartan potassium is the synonym for losarton melting point:183.5 -184.5 oc Answered by Yolanda Wildeman 4 months ago.
Whats the differenc between Losartan Potassium and Losartan Potassium with HCTZ?
Asked by Gidget Trumble 4 months ago.
Losartan potassium with HCTZ has hydrochlorothiazide (HCTZ) in it. That is another medication called a diuretic. It also lowers the blood pressure. The two medications often work well together, which is why the drug companies make a pill that contains them both. If one pill, Losartan, is not string enough, you doctor may start the combo pill instead. Answered by Emiko Meuser 4 months ago.
HCTZ is a diuretic that can lower the blood pressure. Losartan Potasium is andother Antihypertensitive agent. The difference between Losartan and Losartan with HCTZ is that the former is one molecule, the latter a combination of both the molecules, which is of course stronger than tLosartan alone Answered by Kimbery Isaacs 4 months ago.

What happens if someone with normal blood pressure takes losartan potassium?
I have a box of Losartan Potassium 100mg which is for people with hypertension. What would happen if someone healthy with no blood pressure problems takes it? Would their blood pressure go down lower than it should causing them to feel dizzy?
Asked by Gisela Buonadonna 4 months ago.
A person with normal blood pressure might be able to compensate for a small dose of blood pressure medicine and feel no symptoms at all. 100 mg of Losartan, however, is a pretty hefty dose. I'd suspect that our hypothetical healthy person is going to suffer a drop in blood pressure and get dizzy. Answered by Melodee Kaner 4 months ago.

Hi there! Have you ever surfed "www.webmd.com"? It is an excellent medical site that is easy to surf and will answer any question from medicines to diseases. Very helpful. I wasn't sure of the name of your medicine, so I googled it at www.webmd.com. It is new to me. Anyway, it has been given to you for your blood pressure and/or your heart if you have congestive heart failure which means your heart has worked so hard for so long that one side or both sides of the heart muscle has enlarged and not working as efficiently as it should. When your heart doesn't pump effectively, then the blood isn't pumped around the body and filtered through your kidneys like it should be where excess salts and potassiums, etc are normally filtered in the correct amounts and all is well (like when you were younger). Anyway, now your heart struggles to pump your blood uphill from your toes to your heart, so your blood will stay in your lower body a tad longer than it should and the fluid in the blood then is taken from the blood and put into the tissues of the ankles and feet and they swell. This is right sided heart failure. You must help them along by sitting down more often with your lower extremities raised up, making it easier for the heart to pump the blood and you'll see your ankles/feet go down. Some blood pressure medicines will help your body get rid of salt. (you should never be eating table salt nor items canned with salt). Potassium binds itself to salt in the body. Where salt goes, so goes the potassium. Salt holds water in your body ... excess water. If your heart doesn't pump the water out properly, then the excess water increases the fluid in your blood stream and raises your blood pressure. So the blood pressure medicine will make your body get rid of the water (diuretic). Trouble is, when the body gets rid of the water, it gets rid of the salt and so goes the potassium too! It's ok, to get rid of the salt, but one's potassium may drop too then and that's not good. The heart needs the potassium to function properly. So, there are blood pressure medicines that "spare" the potassium, but gets rid of the salt. This is good, but a person should then NOT take any potassium supplements because you can overload your body with potassium and that is dangerous for your heart. Your doctor will take blood often and adjust your medication accordingly to keep your salt (which has a symbol of "Na") on your blood work, and potassium (which has a symbol of K+) on your blood work. He will be looking for the normal ranges, not high nor low. Just know, Losartan is NOT potassium, it is a blood pressure medicine which will affect your potassium levels. You may have diabetes as well. If there is any way you can lose weight, you would help yourself tremendously! The excess weight has affected your diabetes as well as your heart now. You're diabetes will kill you before anything else because it affects every blood vessel in your body, including the vessels of all your organs. (Just some free advice). Good luck to you, and God bless you I am an RN Answered by Gwendolyn Renart 4 months ago.

What is this in english losartan potasico?
i need to know if it is like cozaar it was bought across and they said it was but it doesn't say cozaar it say "losartan potasico"
Asked by Lai Vantrump 4 months ago.
Losartan potassium is the generic name of Cozaar so what you have is indeed Cozaar. Losartan belongs to a family of drugs referred to as angiotensin receptor blockers. These are most commonly employed for hypertension but they are used in heart failure as well. They have no advantage over the less expensive angiotensin 1 converting enzyme inhibitors such as lisinopril. Lisinopril costs $4 per month at WalMart which is less than the copay brand names covered by insurance. Answered by Isadora Barentine 4 months ago.
