Brief Answer: XXXXXXX concentration in 1 hour

Detailed Answer:
Hello,

losartan achieves its highest concentration within 1 hour after oral administration. Please take into account that losartan and similar drugs are not supposed to show their full potential before 15-20 days of use.

This kind of blood pressure that you have is indeed high but not alarming unless you've got an aneurysm or serious heart disease. If you've just started losartan, you should give it some time (a couple of weeks at least).

Kind Regards!
