question about Cozaar and Lithium Carbonate

My current psychiatrist has been under impressed with my Lithium levels going into summer in a few months-the one time of year my mania flares up. Right now I am at .6 he would be content with .8-1.0, that is just him. He stared at my files a good long time and said,"would you be willing to talk to your doctor about discontinuing your losartan potassium?"

I was like i don't know, and he said your blood pressure is good 120/78 and the losartan can decrease the lithium levels in my blood. Is this true, has anyone had experience with this? I am not second guesing him-but I don't have the greatest insurance plan-I would need 2 more appointments to address this, right? Can't he just email or call my GP and take this med away??
