Co-Hypertonic combines an angiotensin II receptor blocker (losartan) with a diuretic (hydrochlorothiazide). Losartan prevents angiotensin II from binding with these receptors by relaxing blood vessels and lowering blood pressure. Hydrochlorothiazide works by stimulating the kidneys to excrete more water and salts.
Co-Hypertonic is indicated for the treatment of essential hypertension in patients whose blood pressure is not adequately controlled with losartan or hydrochlorothiazide alone.
