About this FactMed analysis covering adverse side effect reports of LOSARTAN patients who developed PETECHIAE.

FactMed provides MD-approved analysis to help both patients, researchers, and physicians accurately assess the risk profile for more than 20,000 different pharmaceutical products. The below report offers compiled information from Food & Drug Administration and FactMed user submissions. Between January 2004 and October 2012, 3 individuals taking LOSARTAN reported PETECHIAE to the FDA. A total of 2341 LOSARTAN drug adverse event reaction reports were made with the FDA during this time period. Often the FDA only receives reports of the most critical and severe cases; these numbers may therefore underrepresent the complication rate of the medication.

FDA Research Report

Introduction This page is designed to help you determine the relationship, if any, between LOSARTAN and PETECHIAE.

QUESTION
ASPIRATION BRONCHIAL
I started getting a wheezy bronchial tightness after taking Lozartan and other new drugs such as effient, Ranexa etc and my dr just brushes it off. Ive been using Albuteral inhalers and a rate of 2 puffs at least 6 or more times a day. My dr said "you can't use it that much" and my reply was, what am I suppose to do? Close up and die? I cant breath when this happens and when I do close up, its like I stated, I CANT BREATH> I also have a very weak bladder any more (which I never had before) and exhaustion when climbing steps and walking ,my dogs up hill. My Cardiologist won't listen and wants to keep checking me for blockage in my heart which now he says I have a "small" blockage and my lower heart isn't getting enough blood BUT it's not critical and he wants to wait a while. For what?? For me to have a heart attack? Is this the usual procedures for these drug side effects? Should I find another dr? or two? I don't feel like having another heart attack later because they won't check out this blockage because it's not bad yet....doesn't sound right to me or other people I know. What about the Lozartan? He says that just because that side effect is listed, it doesn't mean that this is why I close up, but I didn't have these problems before I took these drugs. 2015-08-18 21:09:05
