One of the side effects [rare?] of this drug is listed as more frequent or larger amount of urine passing.

I noticed this on first use and will see if it persists as an ongoing problem, or not.

Definitely as strong as a normal diuretic drug- for me.

It is not designed as a diruetic, however that may be a side effect for some people. Losartan is only designed to lower blood pressure - nothing more.
