Hypertension under control, have frequent dizziness, headache and eye strain after stopping morning dose of Repace 50. Cause?

About 4 weeks back my Doctor advised to stop taking Repace 50 (Losartan Potassium ) morning dose as I was keeping good control on my HT since about 1-2 years with medication . All was well till recently I started feeling dizzy in the evenings, had headache and strain in the eyes. Could this be some kind of withdrawal symptom? Other medicines that I take very regularly, are Amtas AT (1 in morning) and Repace 50 & Zivast 20 (1 each in the night). Please help.

Hi friend,
Welcome to Health Care Magic

It is not likely from stopping losartan...
It could be incidental and you need investigation...

     Dizziness may be from postural hypo-tension / anaemia / arrhythmia and so on
     The body's balancing mechanism is in the inner ear. An ENT (Ear Nose Throat) specialist should be consulted...
     If there are no clues, you have to be followed up by a neurologist. MRI may be needed. MRA (MRI angiography) shows blood vessels and is generally done at the same sitting.

Discuss with your doctor...

Take care
Wishing speedy recovery
God bless
Good luck
