jesse; the best thing to do is call your doctor,They may have to change your medications these are not common side effects and sometimes it could be loss of potassium etc you should let your doctor know before they take off for the weekend.

See if your Dr will reduce your dosage and the symptoms will disappear or at least lessen.
If you are taking losartan alone, the muscle cramps and spasms can be a potential manifestation of high blood potassium. Losartan and similar medications can increase potassium levels in your body. The best option is to contact your doctor as soon as possible. If your blood potassium goes too high, it may suppress your heart and susceptible individuals may have disturbed heart rhythm, which is considerably more serious. However, if you are taking other medications, then they may be the potential causes as well. So long as you are not sure, please consult your doctor.
I'm having the same problem... I haven't taken it for 4 days... was treated at hospital for dehydration but all my potassium levels was normal... I'm still having cramps 4 days later... I'm worried
Hi I also had muscle cramps - I found temporary relief by increasing my intake of magnesium. Talk to your doc about correct dose of magnesium.
