Does losartan cause a dry mouth?
it should not cause dry mouth. One of the most common side effects is a dry cough and muscle pain. Less commonly it can cause other problems (diarrhea, dizziness, fatigue, hepatitis, allergic reactions), but dry mouth is not one of the side effects of this medication. Hope that helps, let me know if you have any further questions or concerns.

Can I take 120 mg Sudafed with Losartan?
It isn't the worst. Sudafed has some effect to increase blood pressure and increasing the stress on blood vessels. This is more of a risk in someone on blood pressure medicine. BUT Losartan works to lower blood pressure by a mechanism that is not related to the mechanism that sudafed raises it (sudafed increases stress hormones slightly). BLOCKERS of stress hormones (beta blockers) interact worse.
