  • Losartan 100Mg


Category Of Sortiva forte 100 Tablets

  • Anti-Hypertensive Drugs


Mechanism Of Action Of Losartan & Hydrochlorothiazide

  • Losartan is an angiotensin II receptor blocker (ARB). It works by blocking a substance in the body that causes blood vessels to constrict.
  • As a result, losartan relaxes the blood vessels. This lowers blood pressure and increases the supply of blood and oxygen to the heart.
  • Hydrochlorothiazide inhibits sodium chloride transport in the distal convoluted tubule. More sodium is then excreted in the kidney with accompanying fluid.
  • Thus it increases urine excretion, which by turn decreases blood volume and finally blood pressure.
  • On long-term usage, thiazide diuretic (TZD)-mediated chronic reduction of arterial pressure is thought to occur through decreased total peripheral vascular resistance.


Therapeutic Indications Of Sortiva forte 100Tablets

  • Treatment of essential hypertension.
  • High blood pressure is a common condition in which the long-term force of the blood against your artery walls is high enough that it may eventually cause health problems, such as heart disease.

  • The usual dose of losartan potassium and hydrochlorothiazide for most patients with high blood pressure is 1 tablet of losartan potassium 100 mg per day to control blood pressure over 24 hours.
  • This can be increased to 2 tablets once daily of losartan100 mg film-coated tablets.
  • The maximum daily dose is 2 tablets per day of losartan 100 mg film-coated tablets.
  • Doses may be changed in special conditions so always follow your doctor's or pharmacist's instructions.
  • If you take more than you should, talk to a doctor or go to the hospital straight away.
