What is Losartan?

Losatan (Losartan) is an effective treatment for hypertension . It manages high blood pressure and can be effective in preventing heart attack or stroke. It can also preserve the functioning of the kidneys in those people who suffer from an imparied kidney function due to diabetes or hypertension or chronic kidney disease.

Losatan is available in the form of a tablet in various dosages and belongs to a group of treatments that are known as angiotensin receptor blockers (ARBs) or angiotensin II receptor antagonists.

Angiotensin II is a hormone that narrows the muscular walls of small arteries and increases blood pressure. ARBs restrict the effect of angiotensin II by widening the arteries. This helps blood to flow easily and lowers blood pressure levels.

ARBs work as effectively as ACE inhibitors (another type of medication that widen your blood vessels and lower blood pressure). Both of these are recommended as the first line of treatment for hypertension. The only difference between the two is that ARBs limit the the action of angiotensin II while ACE inhibitors prevent the production of angiotensin II. ARBs are usually prescribed to hypertensive patients who are intolerant to ACE inhibitors.

How does Losartan work?

As Losartan is an angiotensin receptor blocker, it works by blocking the action of angiotensin II in your body. Angiotensin II is a chemical substance present in your body which constricts the blood vessels and makes them tighter. This affects the smooth flow of blood and increases the pressure on your heart to pump blood.

Losartan relaxes the blood vessels and helps the heart to exert less force on them. It can then pump blood with more ease thereby lowering your blood pressure levels and reducing the risk of heart attack or stroke.

What doses of Losatan are there?

There are two doses of Losatan: 25mg and 50mg. For most adults, the starting dose is 50mg. If your blood pressure comes under control and stays stable, your doctor may reduce your dose after a while. But if 50mg isn’t quite effective enough at lowering your blood pressure, your doctor might suggest increasing it or changing to a different treatment.

How to take Losatan

It is important to take Losartan as instructed by your doctor to get the best results for your treatment.

  • Swallow Losartan whole with a glass of water.
  • Try to take your daily dose of Losartan at the same time each day.
  • You can take it with or without food.

Sometimes the doses may need to be increased or decreased depending on the severity of your condition. Do not make any changes to the dosage on your own. It is equally important to take them correctly. Your doctor will be able to advise you regarding this.

What should I do if I miss a dose?

Don’t worry if you miss a dose. If you forget to take Losartan, carry on as normal when your next dose is due. Do not take double to make up for the missed dose as this can heighten the risk of side effects and even lead to them becoming severe.

As Losatan should be taken at the same time each day, you should try and schedule it for something you do at the same time each day, such as a meal. This can help you to avoid missed doses.

What should I do if I take too much?

If you’ve taken too much Losatan you should seek immediate medical attention from your doctor or the nearest hospital. What amounts to an overdose of Losartan will differ from person to person, but look out for the following symptoms: dizziness, sleepiness and a heavy heartbeat.

FAQ: Losatan

Have something specific you want to know about Losatan? Search our info below, or ask our experts a question if you can’t find what you’re looking for.

How effective is Losatan?

Answer:
Losatan is an effective treatment for high blood pressure. Clinical trials have shown that Losartan is also very well tolerated and is safe for patients with diabetes, coronary heart disease and peripheral arterial disease as well.

It is widely used as first-line therapy for stage 1 hypertension though its doses differ from person to person. Your doctor may prescribe Losatan as an individual or combination treatment based on the severity of your condition. Typically patients with cardiovascular risk are given a higher dosage or asked to take Losartan along with some other hypertensive medicine to achieve normal blood pressure levels.

Can I split Losartan tablets in half?

Answer:
Occasionally your doctor may instruct you to take Losartan by splitting it in equal halves. This is mostly when you are to take a lower dose but it isn’t available. So, you should break Losartan tablets in half only if your doctor advises you to do so. And while doing so, you should always ensure that the tablet is broken into equal halves.

Is Losartan similar to any other hypertension treatments?

Answer:
The active ingredient in Losatan is Losartan, which is also the name of the generic form of the medication. Some other brands similar to Losatan are Losar, Losacar, Covance, Repace, Tozaar, Losakind and Losium. All these treatments contain the same active ingredient and work in the same way but may differ in packaging and price.

What are the alternatives to Losatan?

Answer:
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.

Are there any natural ways of managing your blood pressure?

Answer:
Obviously, it’s better to be able to manage your high blood pressure without medication, but if you’ve been prescribed a treatment, you should take it.

That’s not to say there’s nothing you can do to help. In fact, lifestyle changes are key to managing the condition. This includes lowering your salt intake, eating a low fat diet and getting regular exercise. Consuming less caffeine and alcohol and quitting smoking are also highly recommended.
