Hello Sir

After going through the medical details provided by you I understand your concern for your health and I would like to tell you that your doctor is right as there us no such documented side effects associated with the use of Losartan.

However if you still feel it's because of it then you can discontinue the medicine for 3 to 4 days to see if the rash subsides. By this time you have to keep an eye on bp by regular monitoring.

I hope this information will answer your query.

Kind Regards
Dr Bhanu partap
