My son is 10 yrs old and Cincinnati recommended 25mg starting dosage for him for Losartin. Another kid same age, they seem to have recommended 12.5mg stating dosage. I am going to call them on Tuesday and confirm the dosage, but just wondering if anyone have any insights.  For both the kids, heart MRI is normal.

 

Thanks.

My son is 13 yrs, 150lbs, and receives 25mg of losartan per day. We have not seen any side effects.

Some docs like to start at half the typical dose in the beginning and monitor for side effects. If none are seen, then they boost to normal dose. That may be what is going on here.
Thank you. What is surprising here is that it is the same docs from Cincinnati.
