I was on valsartan 50-12.5 for years but due to recent recall my doctor put me on losartan/htc 50-12.5 for my hypertension. I have always weighed between 189 and 192 year round for at least past ten years but, in past 10 days I've gained 7 or 8 lbs. I weighed tonight and it was 199.6. Ive not weighed that much since the late eighties. Dr is getting a call tomorrow to change my medicines at least until the new batch of valsartan is available. Is anyone else experiencing rapid weight gain for no apparent reason since taking this drug?
