Wondering if anyone has side effect of very sore wrists/lower arms while on Losartan? Can touch arms no problem; but feels very achy and bothersome. Also extremely lethargic. Don't feel this way all the time, but comes and goes a few days a month.
Also, is there a way to combat the side effect?

Hello and welcome to EHF !

I went through your query and i understand your concern.Losartan can have myalgias as side effects. Use of statins together make it more likely. Use tylenol for the pain and give it some time. If issue persists let your doctor help you further in this regard.

Take care

I had a sore arm and wrist while on Losarten. Did not realize it may have been the medication. I blamed it on carrying heavy groceries. I wear copper bracelets when my arm/wrist hurts and it helps. I discontinued the Losarten after the second recall and now realize that I no longer have the pain.
