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.
