What happens if you stop losartan potassium suddenly? What can you expect from stopping losartan cold turkey?
If you stop taking losartan suddenly the mostly likely effect will be an increase in blood pressure. Losartan is generally used to keep blood pressure controlled. Suddenly stopping it will increase blood pressure. High blood pressure can increase your risk of heart attack and stroke.
I’d encourage you to speak with your healthcare provider before stopping this medication. There are alternatives if you feel you are not tolerating the medication.
If you do stop taking the your blood pressure medication it is a good idea to monitor your blood pressure for several weeks. A good monitor is not very expensive and will help determine the effect of stopping your medicine.
