Losartan Potassium + Hydrochlorothiazide

Losartan Potassium + Hydrochlorothiazide

What is losartan/hydrochlorothiazide?

This drug is a prescription medication. It comes as an oral tablet.

This drug is available as the brand-name drug Hyzaar and as a generic drug. Generic drugs usually cost less. In some cases, they may not be available in every strength or form as the brand-name version.

This is a combination of two drugs in a single form. It’s important to know about all the drugs in the combination because each drug may affect you in a different way.

This drug may be used as part of a combination therapy. That means you need to take it with other drugs.

Uses

This drug is used to treat high blood pressure. It is also used to lower the risk of strokes in patients with high blood pressure and an enlarged heart. Lowering high blood pressure helps prevent strokes, heart attacks, and kidney problems. This product contains two medications: losartan and hydrochlorothiazide. Losartan is an angiotensin receptor blocker (ARB) and works by relaxing blood vessels so that blood can flow more easily. Hydrochlorothiazide is a "water pill" (diuretic) that causes you to make more urine, which helps your body get rid of extra salt and water.
