What is Losartan?
The active ingredient Losartan is one of the most important hypertension drugs in the market. It belongs to the group of sartans or angiotensin receptor antagonists (ARB).Sartans are receptor antagonists of the ACE receptors and, in addition to the ACE inhibitors and beta-blockers, are the most important drugs for lowering blood pressure. They block the docking site or the receptor of the hormone angiotensin II and suppress its action. Normally, this hormone causes a rise in blood pressure because it provokes vasoconstriction, decreased kidney circulation as well as increased recovery of sodium ions and hence water in the kidneys. Sartans have relatively few side effects as they interfere with the hormone control loop later than the ACE inhibitors.
What is Hypertension?
The natural regulation of blood pressure is a normal body function. If more energy is needed, the body automatically increases blood pressure, and during periods of rest it automatically lowers it.
A disturbance in this natural system can lead to high blood pressure
and the person usually does not feel it. Therefore, he does not notice when hypertension gradually gets worse. Constant unnoticed hypertension especially affects small vessels, as found in the eye and in the kidneys. Long-term unrecognized hypertension may result in loss of vision and severe kidney dysfunction.
In order to prevent consequential damage, the affected persons must do sports, eat healthily and take antihypertensive medication.
What is the effect of Losartan?
The drug Losartan, is one of the most important antihypertensive agents and was approved in the US in 1995. As it is relatively new drug, it can be taken over a long period of time and maintains a very good tolerability. The drug is a sartan or angiotensin II receptor antagonist. It inhibits the formation of vasoconstrictor messengers such as angiotensin II and enhances the formation of vasodilators such as bradykinin. By taking the drug, the blood pressure is regulated and the heart is relieved.
Who can take Losartan?

⇒ The drug may be used in children over six years, but in a reduced and body- weight adjusted dose.
