I have been taking losartan for about a month as well as methyldopa. I have nausea, stupor and shaking. Is that typical of these drugs and what else might be more effective. Thanks so much.

Brief Answer:
Losartan side effects most likely

Detailed Answer:
Dear Ma'am, I have gone through your question and I understand your concerns

But unfortunately, Losartan is known to cause the side effects of nausea and shakiness. If you cannot tolerate these side effects then I suggest that you discontinue losartan and continue on methyldopa only.

Please discuss this with your doctor...

I hope you find this helpful...
