About LOSTAT 50MG TABLET

LOSTAT 50MG TABLET belongs to a class of drugs known as angiotensin II receptor blockers that are used to treat high blood pressure (hypertension) and lower the risk of stroke in certain people with heart disease. Hypertension is a medical condition in which blood pressure is elevated persistently (<140/90) in the arteries. Heart failure is a chronic condition in which the heart is unable to pump blood as effectively as it should.

LOSTAT 50MG TABLET works by blocking the action of a hormone called angiotensin II thereby preventing blood vessels from narrowing, in turn lowering the blood pressure and improving the overall blood flow. Besides this, it also protects your kidneys if you have both kidney disease and diabetes.
