Verapamil and losartan taken together

Drug Interactions, High Blood Pressure Medication

Can verapamil be combined with losartan? Can you take losartan potassium and verapamil together?




Verapamil is a calcium channel blocker(CCB). The CCBs affect heart rate, they also help relax some of the vessels around the heart allowing better blood flow and delivery of oxygen to the heart.

Losartan (sometime also referred to as losartan potassium and sold under the US brand name Cozaar) is an Angiotensin Receptor Blocker (ARB). ARBs help relax the blood vessels in the body which decreases blood pressure.  They may also effect levels of electrolytes like sodium and potassium.losartan-and-verapamil-together

The medicines do not interact with each other.  You should still watch for side effects of either medication.  Your doctor may want to use them together to adequately control blood pressure and/or certain heart conditions.

Learning about your medications and potential side effects and interactions is very important.  You are being and educated patient by learning about your medications and I encourage you to continue to learn more.

Be sure to contact your doctor or pharmacist is you feel you may be having some problems with any of your medications or health conditions.  It is always in your best interest to speak to a health care provider before starting or stopping medicines (prescription or over-the-counter).
