Cozaar



Losartan is a drug used to treat high blood pressure (hypertension) and has been examined for congestive heart failure and diabetic nephropathy. It is marketed as Cozaar by Merck Sharp and Dohme and as Hyzaar in combination with the thiazide diuretic hydrochlorothiazide (HCT).


Losartan was the first member of the recently introduced class of angiotensin II receptor antagonists. It blocks the action of the peptide hormone angiotensin on its receptors, decreasing arterial vascular tone and production of aldosterone.
