Losartan HCTZ

Losartan-hydrochlorothiazide (HCTZ) is a prescription blood pressure medication sold under the brand name Hyzaar®. Though not a cure for high blood pressure, the drug can decrease your risk of heart attack, stroke, and other health problems that are caused by long-term hypertension.
 
Losartan comes in the form of a tablet and is available in three strengths. Though generally well tolerated, side effects are possible and may include:
 
  • Dizziness
  • Cough
  • Low potassium in the blood.
