If your medication was changed to 100 MG Losartan you can still drink V8. V8 helps to maintain your desired weight and losing weight as well. This therefore, goes well with hypertension medication. However, you should first ask your doctor for more clarification.

Hi there. I don't think the above answers were what you were looking for. I think people need to understand that Losartan is a blood pressure medication. Too much salt can actually increase your pressure. Are you concerned because of the amount of the sodium content in V8? I assume you are talking about the V8 vegetable juice and not the fusion or splash. I tell my patients to buy low Sodium V8 (140 mg sodium per 8-ounce serving) which contains 70% less sodium than regular V8 juice. You should not be drinking the regular v8 juice if you are concerned about the sodium...this defeats the purpose of your medications. As with anything....moderation is the key. Hope this helps
