THIS IS A BRAND MEDICATION
Brand name: Hyzaar
Generic ingredients: Losartan potassium and Hydrochlorothiazide
Why is Hyzaar prescribed? Hyzaar is a combination medication
used in the treatment of high blood pressure . One component, losartan, belongs
to a new class of blood pressure medications that work by preventing the hormone
angiotensin II from constricting the blood vessels, thus allowing blood to flow
more freely and keeping the blood pressure down. The other component,
hydrochlorothiazide, is a diuretic that increases the output of urine, removing
excess fluid from the body and thus lowering blood pressure.
Please consult your personal physician before taking any medication.
Hyzaar may also be used for purposes other than those listed in this medication guide.
