Cosart-H 50 mg / 12.5 mg
Cosart-H contains two active ingredients - Losartan Potassium and Hydrochlorothiazide for hypertension (high blood pressure). Losartan Potassium is an angiotensin II receptor antagonist that prevents the blood vessels from narrowing which improves blood flow and lowers blood pressure. Hydrochlorothiazide is a thiazide diuretic (water pill) that stops the body from absorbing too much salt which can lead to fluid retention. High levels of salt in the body can lead to high blood pressure.
