Losartan Dosing

General Losartan Dosing Information

Some considerations for people taking losartan include:
 
  • Your losartan dosage should be taken by mouth with a glass of water.
     
  • Losartan may be taken with or without food.
     
  • Make sure to take losartan at the same time each day to maintain even levels of medicine in the blood.
     
  • For losartan to work properly, you have to take it as prescribed. Losartan will not work if you take it in a different way than your healthcare provider has prescribed.
     
  • If you do not take your losartan as scheduled, take your next dose as soon as you remember. If it is almost time for the next scheduled dose, skip the missed one and continue with normal dosing. Do not take a double dose.
     
  • If you have moderate to severe liver disease, such as cirrhosis, your body may metabolize the losartan differently than intended. Therefore, your healthcare provider may start you on a lower dose of losartan and monitor your situation more closely.
     
  • If you are unsure about anything related to losartan or your losartan dosage, please talk to your doctor, nurse, or pharmacist. Do not stop taking losartan without first discussing it with your healthcare provider.
