High Blood Pressure Support Group

Hypertension or high blood pressure is a medical condition wherein the blood pressure is chronically elevated. Persistent hypertension is one of the risk factors for strokes, heart attacks, heart failure and arterial aneurysm, and is a leading cause of chronic renal failure. Doctors recommend weight loss and regular exercise as the first steps in treating mild to moderate hypertension.

losartan and blurred vision

Do you have any feedback about losartan?
I've been taking losartan 50 mg for 3 months, and I recently noticed blurred vision with my left eye. My bp has been very low, so I'm planning to to go drs and ask if i can stop taking meds.

Of course if you get very low BP you can get temporary blurred vision.

However, been only in a eye, I would go to the ophthalmologist, it should be something different on it.

Jesus.

Thanks, the doctor asked me to take only half of the medicine for a week. He said i might need to adjust the dosage. I should go back to the clinic after a week.
He said I could probably wean off from hbp med in near future and opt to take fish oil, and I should continue living a healthy lifestyle.

i suffer with the blurred vision alot. Didn't realise that you get it with low bp aswell though. Just thought my eyes were packing up on me. One eye becomes totally blurred by the end of the day.

    I have cancer

    I had to have a lung biopsy, and I have cancer. A very rare form that doesn't have any standard treatment. There just isn't a lot of case history for this. It is epithelioid hemangio endothelioma. The cancer support group doesn't talk every day. I can understand why. I'm waiting for the oncologist to call back for an appointment, and will hear in the next few days. Who knew. Ha!

    It's so hard dealing with pain especially when you don't get any support from the person who your supposed to be closest to. So hard when your trying to deal with pain and that person treats you worse than the pain. Having hard time understanding why. unless you are having a good Day you are treated like crap and they make you feel worthless.
