Is it safe to take Losartan for hypertension?

Hello I am 76 kg 56 yrs old professor working in a university. I am taking losartan 50 daily for hypertension daily in the morning. Recently i had developed some kind of discomfort or say pain like situation in upper chest or right or left shoulder . But I continue to go to office . Then I consulted my physician he prescribed me Aztor Asp75 in the night and Dolo 650 in Morning and Evening alongwith .25 Alprazolam. I am feeling slightly improved but quite weak in the evening. My lipid profile is colesterol 152,Triglyceride 186 HDL 34, LDL 80 and VLDL 37.32 in May 2011. I am worried. It is affecting my work. I have not taken any rest and keep going to office. Please suggest me in what way I should go. Regards Prof P.D.Juyal Ludhiana

DEAR USER,
THANKS FOR CONSULTING WITH HCM

I UNDERSTAND YOUR CONCERN.. YES LOSARTAN IS SAFE FOR HYPERTENSION

SEEING YOUR TREATMENT, YOUR PHYSICIAN HAS STARTED TREATMENT SUSPECTING YOU TO HAVE ANGINA

I THINK YOU NEED TO CONSULT A CARDIOLOGIST URGENTLE.. GET A ECG AND IF POSSIBLE A ECHOCARDIOGRAPHY DONE

I DID NOT UNDERSTAND THE POINT WHY YOU WERE STARTED ON DOLO 650
I SUGGEST YOU TALK TO YOUR PHYSICIAN WHY YOU WERE STARTED ON IT

YOU NEED TO DESCRIBE YOUR SYMPTOM IF YOUR SUFFERING FROM DIFFICULTY IN BREATHING, BREATHLESSNESS, ANY SWELLING IN LEGS, ANY HISTORY OF CHEST PAIN.. SO THAT I CAN HELP YOU IN A MORE DETAILED WAY

HOPE I ANSWERED YOUR QUERY. YOU CAN MESSAGE ME FOR ANY FURTHER CONCERNS
