Losatan belongs to a class of drugs called angiotensin receptor blockers (ARB) or angiotensin II receptor antagonists which relax the blood vessels and make it easier for the heart to pump blood, thus lowering blood pressure. There are a variety of ARBs which lower hypertension as effectively as Losatan. Some of them are telmisartan (Telma, Telvas, Eritel, Temsan) azilsartan (Aztric, Abel and Zilarbi), irbesartan (Irovel, Irbepex, Sebri and Debipro), eprosartan (Eprozar), olmesartan (Olmesar, Olmat and Olmezest), valsartan (Valodil, Diovan and Valzzar) and candesartan (Candelong, Cantar and Kandisar).
Besides ARBs, some other groups of drugs used in treatment of hypertension are beta-blockers, ACE inhibitors, alpha blockers, diuretics, calcium channel blockers, alpha-2 receptor agonists, and combined alpha and beta-blockers.
Amlodipine, a calcium channel blocker, which is available under brand names like Amlip, Amoline or Primodil, is one of the most commonly prescribed medicines and is pretty effective
at managing high blood pressure.
