Uses
Losartan (Losartan Potassium) works by inhibiting the effects of angiotensin II. It is used to treat high blood pressure, heart failure and kidney problems associated with type 2 diabetes. Angiotensin II is a type of peptide hormone which is responsible for causing vasoconstriction (tightening of the blood vessels) and the retention of fluids and salt by the kidneys. This medicine's mechanism of action involves preventing angiotensin II from binding to its receptors, which in turn helps to block its aldosterone secreting effects, while also stopping it from narrowing the blood vessels. As a result of this, blood pressure can be lowered.

Dosage and Administration
Losartan (Losartan Potassium) comes in the form of tablets for oral administration. Adults undergoing treatment for hypertension (high blood pressure) may be directed to administer 50mg per day (however a lower dosage may be used to treat those with intravascular volume depletion). In some cases, the doctor may decide to increase the dosage to 100mg, taken once per day. Generally, the full benefits of treatment will be noticeable 3 to 6 weeks after treatment begins. Other conditions may need to be treated with a different dosage.

Side effects
If you take Losartan (Losartan Potassium) tablets, some side effects may occur:

  • Diarrhoea

Patients should be aware of the fact that other side effects may also occur. Get medical help straight away if you notice a painful sensation when you urinate, thirst, concentration problems or any other serious side effects that have not been mentioned in this paragraph.

Precautions
Do not consume any alcoholic beverages during treatment, as this could put you at an increased likelihood of experiencing side effects.

If you are suffering from or have a history of liver disease, any conditions affecting the kidneys or heart failure, ensure that you inform your doctor of this before starting treatment.

Seek immediate emergency medical attention if you suffer an allergic reaction. Symptoms to watch for, which may be indicative of a reaction, include skin rashes, hives, swelling of the face or limbs, trouble breathing, and trouble swallowing.
