I was recently switched to losartan because of the valsartan

I was recently switched to losartan because of the valsartan recall. I sometimes need to take extra strength pain relief pm acetaminophen 500 mg. because my feet hurt after standing 5-7.5 hrs. at work. Is this okay? The losartan so far (2 days) hasn't been working as well as valsartan.

I switched from losartan 100 to valsartan 320 about 3 months ago, and I have had a runny nose ever since. Now the supplier has changed, and I am short of breath, and extremely tired. I still have the losartan, and tested by taking it instead and didn t feel this tiredness and breath shortness.

Recently his Dr. asked him to swithch to Losartan. What s the difference between Nifedipine and Losartan? Should he switch? Thanks.Amy
