Losartan Potassium



Hypertension: Losartan Potassium is used to treat high blood pressure. It can be taken alone or with other antihypertensive medications (eg. thiazide diuretics).

Losartan Potassium is approved to prevent the course of renal disease in hypertensive type-2 diabetics with proteinuria, defined as a urine albumin to creatinine ratio of more than 300 mg/g.



Losartan Potassium is the first angiotensin II receptor blocker that is not a peptide. It binds to the AT1 receptor, which can be present in a variety of tissues (including vascular smooth muscle, the adrenal gland, the kidneys, and the heart), and inhibits a number of biological processes, including vasoconstriction and the release of the hormone aldosterone, which causes hypertension.


Dosage & Administration

For most people, the beginning and maintenance dose is 50 mg once daily. Before increasing the dose, if the antihypertensive impact of 50 mg once daily is insufficient, 25 mg twice daily is recommended. A starting dose of 25 mg once daily should be considered for individuals with intravascular volume loss (e.g., those treated with high-dose diuretics). Losartan Potassium is a medication that can be taken once or twice a day. The total daily dose is between 25 and 100 mg.



Rifampicin and fluconazole decrease levels of dynamic metabolite of Losartan Potassium. Concomitant utilize of Losartan Potassium and hydrochlorothiazide may lead to potentiation of the antihypertensive impacts. Concomitant utilize of potassium-sparing diuretics (eg, spironolactone, triamterene, amiloride), potassium supplements or salt substitutes containing potassium may lead to increments in serum potassium. The antihypertensive impact of losartan may be weakened by the non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medicate indomethacin. The utilize of ACE-inhibitor, angiotensin receptor enemy, an anti-inflammatory sedate and a thiazide diuretic at the same time increments the hazard of renal impairment.



Losartan Potassium is not recommended for pregnant women or those who are hypersensitive to any of the product’s ingredients. In diabetic patients, Losartan Potassium should not be used with Aliskiren.


Side Effects

The negative effects of Losartan Potassium are minor and only last a short time. Dizziness, diarrhea, nasal congestion, cough, and upper respiratory infection are the most prevalent adverse effects. Fatigue, oedema, stomach pain, chest pain, nausea, headache, and pharyngitis are some of the other side effects.


Pregnancy & Lactation

D is the pregnancy category. If Losartan Potassium is given during the second or third trimesters of pregnancy, the risk to the fetus increases. Losartan Potassium is not known whether it is excreted in human milk, but because many drugs are, and because of the potential for adverse effects on the nursing infant, a decision should be made whether to stop nursing or stop taking the drug, taking into account the drug’s importance to the mother.


Precautions & Warnings

Losartan Potassium use throughout the second and third trimesters of pregnancy lowers fetal renal function and increases fetal and neonatal morbidity and mortality. Symptomatic hypotension can develop in people who have lost intravascular volume (e.g., those on high-dose diuretics). In cirrhotic patients, the plasma concentration of Losartan Potassium is much higher. Renal impairment has been linked to changes in renal function, including renal failure.
