Hi, thanks for using healthcare magic
If the symptoms occur even without the losartan
then it is unlikely to be related to this medication.
It is possible that the abnormal taste is related to GERD
, the barium study would provide further information on this.
In addition to the nexium
, you may have to consider altering your diet to reduce your use of spicy/acidic/citrus/fatty/fried foods to see if this helps improve your symptoms.
With a history of such high blood pressure
, it would not be advisable to discontinue the losartan without speaking to your doctor.
I hope this helps
