TOZAAR AT TABLET belongs to a class of combination drugs called 'anti-hypertensive' primarily used to treat hypertension (high blood pressure). Hypertension (high blood pressure) is a lifelong or chronic condition in which the blood pressure against the artery walls becomes too high. This can lead to damaged blood vessels leading to heart disease, stroke, kidney disease, and other problems.
TOZAAR AT TABLET is a combination of Losartan (angiotensin II receptor blockers) and Atenolol (a beta-blocker).

Hypertension: Blood pressure is the measurement of the force that our heart uses to pump blood to all body parts. Hypertension is a chronic condition when blood pressure is too high. This condition can lead to hardened arteries (blood vessels), decreasing the blood and oxygen flow to the heart. Raised blood pressure can cause chest pain (angina) and heart attack (when blood supply to the heart is blocked). Additionally, high blood pressure also causes brain damage (stroke) and kidney failure. High blood pressure can be diagnosed with the help of a blood pressure monitor. Systolic pressure is the pressure with which the heart pumps blood out. On the other hand, diastolic pressure is when your heart is at the resting stage between heartbeats. If your blood pressure is 140/90 mm of Hg, it means the systolic pressure is 140 mm of Hg, and diastolic pressure is 90 mm of Hg. Ideal blood pressure should be between 90/60 mm of Hg and 120/80 mm of Hg.
