Dear customer,

Thank you for the question.

Yes, this is alright. You can take diltiazem now even if you took losartan in the morning and in the evening. Taking them together is not harmful and there is no interaction between them.

Take care.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
