Cosart H

LOSARTAN POTASSIUM-HYDROCHLOROTHIAZIDE (COSART H):

Cosart H is a combination drug consisting of Losartan (an Angiotensin II receptor antagonist) and Hydrochlorothiazide (a diuretic). Losartan was the first angiotensin antagonist to be marketed. Losartan Potassium and Hydrochlorothiazide are the active moieties that synergistically reduce the high levels of blood pressure.

USES OF THE DRUG:

The recommended dose of the combination drug is prescribed for the patients with high blood pressure. It is also used to protect the kidneys from damage due to diabetes. It also decreases the risk of various cardiovascular diseases such as stroke and myocardial infarction.

HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE:

Blood pressure is the force of blood pushing against blood vessel walls. High blood pressure (HBP) means the pressure in your arteries is higher than it should be. Another name for high blood pressure is hypertension. Blood pressure is written as two numbers, such as 117/79 mm Hg.

The top, systolic, number is the pressure when the heart beats
The bottom, diastolic, number is the pressure when the heart rests between beats

Normal blood pressure is 120/80 mm Hg. High blood pressure is a pressure of 140 systolic or higher and/or 90 diastolic or higher that stays high over time.

WORKING OF THE DRUG:

Losartan is an Angiotensin-II receptor antagonist. Angiotensin II hormone exerts two prime effects, one is the constriction of blood vessels and the other is salt/fluid retention in kidneys by forming Aldosterone hormone.

Losartan drug stops the formation of Angiotensin-II, which in turn causes relaxation of blood vessels and increases the blood flow.

Hydrichlorothiazide, a diuretic medication is used to reduce the high blood pressure and swelling up due to excess fluid build up.
