I have. I noticed red spots on my body and more of them as days went by since taking losartan. Now I have been diagnosed with granuloma annulare (the reddish spots) and am wondering if this has happened to anyone else and what treatment are you now getting for it?
Yes!! It's on my upper arms & neck. I've tried freezing it & all kinds of creams. I just stopped taking diovan last week and it maybe subsiding.
I have been on blood pressure meds for the last 12 years, one of which is Losartan, the other is Carvedilol. At the suggestion of my dermatologist I was taken off Losartan because she felt it may be the cause of my G.A. I was taken off Losartan and put on 5mg Amlodipine. I tried that for a few months with no benefit at all.
Yes!!! I took Losartan for years and I took myself off it a couple of months ago, but not for that reason because this is the first I'd heard of it. I replaced Losartan with an herb and it's working quite well, better than the Losartan because my blood pressure never stopped being high after taking it for a long time. I wonder if the GA will go away now? It hasn't moved since I stopped the Losartan.
