Losartan Potassium + Hydrochlorothiazide Tablets 50mg/12.5mg (TGP) – 100

Losartan is an angiotensin receptor blocker (ARB), a drug that relaxes blood vessels so that blood can flow more easily. Losartan is used to treat high blood pressure (hypertension) and to help protect kidneys from damage brought about by diabetes. Losartan can also be used to reduce the risk of stroke in patients that have high blood pressure and an enlarged heart. Managing high blood pressure helps prevent stroke, heart attacks, and kidney problems.

Hydrochlorothiazide, on the other hand, is a thiazide diuretic (water pill) that is used to prevent your body from absorbing and retaining too much salt. It is used to inhibit the kidneys’ ability to retain water while lowering the body’s blood pressure.

Swallow the tablet whole with a glass of water, with or without food. Only take one dose at a time.

Usual adult dose for hypertension

Typically, people will take 50 mg once a day, although some individuals may require 100 mg daily. A doctor may prescribe other hypertension drugs or diuretics in addition to losartan.

People with diabetes typically begin on 50 mg daily, which may increase to 100 mg daily depending on their reaction to the drug.

Usual child dose hypertension in children

Children aged 6 and over may begin on a very low dose. Rarely, they may require up to 50 mg of losartan per day, depending on their blood pressure response.

Pharmacological Action: It works by blocking salt and fluid reabsorption in the kidneys, causing an increased amount of urine containing salt (diuresis). The mechanism of its action in lowering high blood pressure is not well understood. The combination of losartan and HCTZ reduces blood pressure better than either drug alone.
