Drug Ingredient Information

LOSARTAN-50MG

LOSARTAN

Information for patients
Drug Information Losartan belongs to a group of medicines known as angiotensin-II receptor antagonists. Angiotensin-II is a substance produced in the body which binds to receptors in blood vessels, causing them to tighten. This results in an increase in blood pressure. Losartan prevents the binding of angiotensin-II to these receptors, causing the blood vessels to relax which in turn lowers the blood pressure. Losartan slows the decrease of kidney function in patients with high blood pressure and type 2 diabetes. Losartan potassium is used to treat patients with high blood pressure (hypertension) in adults and in children and adolescents 6-18 years of age. to protect the kidney in hypertensive type 2 diabetic patients with laboratory evidence of impaired renal function and proteinuria = 0.5 g per day (a condition in which urine contains an abnormal amount of protein). to treat patients with chronic heart failure when therapy with specific medicines called angiotensin-converting-enzyme inhibitors (ACE inhibitors, medicine used to lower high blood pressure) is not considered suitable by your doctor. If your heart failure has been stabilised with an ACE inhibitor you should not be switched to losartan. in patients with high blood pressure and a thickening of the left ventricle, LOSARTAN POTASSIUM has been shown to decrease the risk of stroke (“LIFE indication”).

The use of losartan is not recommended in patients with severe hepatic impairment. Adult patients with high blood pressure Treatment usually starts with 50 mg losartan (one tablet Losartan potassium 50 mg) once a day.

Adult patients with high blood pressure and type 2 diabetes Treatment usually starts with 50 mg losartan (one tablet Losartan potassium 50 mg) once a day. The dose may later be increased to losartan (two Losartan potassium 50 mg) once daily depending on your blood pressure response. Losartan may be administered with other blood pressure lowering medicines (e.g. diuretics, calcium channel blockers, alpha- or beta-blockers, and centrally acting agents) as well as with insulin and other commonly used medicines that decrease the level of glucose in the blood (e.g. sulfonylureas, glitazones and glucosidase inhibitors). Adult Patients with heart failure Treatment usually starts with 12.5 mg losartan (one tablet Losartan potassium 12.5 mg) once a day.
