If you are taking the med Valsartan, a blood pressure med, do your research. There is a recall on it. I had heard nothing about this until I got a letter from an insurance provider. I called the pharmacy and asked just how long has this drug not been pure. She said they have no idea. Great. Somebody knows...they just aren't talking.

Losartan is of the same drug family as Valsartan, angio-tension receptor blockers, used to treat hypertension, certain heart conditions, and diabetic kidney disease. As I recall these are potassium sparing diuretics which decrease the removal of potassium from the body. Many diuretics, such as Lasix, do remove potassium which means some patients have to take a potassium supplement. Either high or low potassium can be very serious.
