Brief Answer:
Losartan and valsartan are equivalent to each other.

Detailed Answer:
Hi and thank you for asking!
I read your query very carefully.

Losartan and valsartan are equivalent to each other. Both drugs are part of the same group called angiotensine II receptor blockers or ARB drugs.

Since these are medications you should discus with your doctor about the right dosage to switch from valsartan to losartan.

Hope this was of help!
