 1  High Blood Pressure Increased blood sugar, headaches, extreme chest congestion, loss of voice, coughing, constant fatigue, mental cloudiness, irritability, malaise, I just don't feel myself, horrible stomach aches, disruption of normal bowel habits and unbelievable dehydration I have not had blood sugar problems until I started taking this horrible medication. I have a family history of diabetes so I have the dr check my A1C once a year. My A1C prior to going on Hyzaar was 4.0. My A1C after being on Hyzaar for 6 months was 8.5. I feel this med has caused diabetes and I hope a class action law suit gets fired up for this drug and I want to be a part of it. I am also so dehydrated it is crazy. I drink 5-6 bottles of water a day and I drink Smart Water so I am getting 23.7 oz per bottle. There is no reason I should be as dehydrated as I am. F 38 9 months

 1  high blood pressure Hair loss, weight loss, weakness, unable to have a bm, have to take a laxative now. Overall it make me feel terrible. I don't feel like myself anymore. I can't wait to go to my heart doctor to tell him that, i don't want to take this medication ever again. In my opinion. This medication shouldn't be prescribed for anyone. It should be taken off the market. F 60 3 years
 2  Hypertension Tired dizziness tightness on my left side numbness in both arm heart palpation weak feeling etc.. It really suck M 35 2 years
 3  Hypertension Joint pain, dehydration, severe constipation, ears ringing, and unable to concentrate My blood pressure was extremely high 13 years ago, and this medicine regulated it, so I attribute saving my life to this medicine. However, after years of taking it, I now see symptoms that have crept up on me, and I must now address those. I am unable to think critically, I am prone to falling, my joints are painful, and I must take a laxative in order to have a bm. Last year, I had a VSG and have lost over 60 pounds this far. My blood pressure is actually a bit low now, so I plan to cut my dosage in half for awhile and hopefully, I can effectively wean myself off of this drug. F 48 1 days
 1  High Blood Pressure from SLE lupus Put on Losartan hct Genetic due to SLE lupus induced HBP that old med Inderol was not controlling. Experienced severe Exhaustion. Today trembling, especially in hands. Woozy weakness in legs, nearly fell. Severe knotted cramps in feet, over and over for nearly an hour. Spread to sharp stinging shooting pain and cramps in calves. Then spread up to butt. Also same in back, spread to arms. Then to neck and head. Sharp stinging pain and cramps, tightness around head like giant rubber band. If it spreads to chest, I'm going to the ER. All this in just 2 days. Am mad it was prescribed! Dangerous drug! Read pamphlet while talking on the phone with Pharmacist short time ago. It suggests caution before prescribing to a patient with SLE lupus, Athsma, lung issues (I tend to get Pneumonia easily), and prior Kidney and Liver issues, and joint issues (I have Osteo, and Arthritis, beyond the lupus joint problems). Am furious it was prescribed to me when it obviously should not have been! F 58 2 days

 1  blood pressure Weight Gain, anxiety, hair loss, low energy, hypertension, weak muscles, extreme fatigue, etc. After reading other reviews on this site, I immediately took myself off this 'bad' drug. I'm taking the natural way to better health. Better eating habits, walking, OMEGA 3 (fish oil), and 500 mg of MAGNESIUM to lower blood pressure. Please read about magnesium benefits. Most people don't get enough. And, don't let a doctor control the quality of your life. Be informed! F 62 3 years

HYZAAR  (HYDROCHLOROTHIAZIDE; LOSARTAN POTASSIUM):  This drug is used to treat high blood pressure. It is also used to lower the risk of strokes in patients with high blood pressure and an enlarged heart. Lowering high blood pressure helps prevent strokes, heart attacks, and kidney problems. This product contains two medications: losartan and hydrochlorothiazide. Losartan is an angiotensin receptor blocker (ARB) and works by relaxing blood vessels so that blood can flow more easily. Hydrochlorothiazide is a "water pill" (diuretic) that causes you to make more urine, which helps your body get rid of extra salt and water.   (Sources: U.S. Centers for Medicare Services, FDA)
