I just started taking losartan. So far I don't think I have any side affects except made headaches from day one. I have other health problems and I don't want to gain weight. I was just wondering if losartan can cause weight gain?

Yes! Losartan (cozaar) does cause weight gain I have gain more than 150lbs since I started taking it and my Dr. Just figured this out and had switched me to another high blood pressure medicine. Since then I have lost 40lbs of that weight so far and it's only been 3 months. I know it seems impossible but this is absolutely true story.
