When is this safe? Just picked up script. I'm 80 years of age, for high blood pressure. Checked here and found out a 'major contra-indication' can occur with potassium in the losartan when taking with atenolol. I called the pharmacy and he said 'no' contraindications, Which is true?
Hi, best bet is to discuss with your Dr. I was taking both a few years ago (50 atenolol, 50 losartan and had to cease the Losartan due to both potassium and edema issues. Interestingly enough years later I'm on a daily of propranolol 60 and losartan 100, with no issues.
