Losartan Potassium

Losartan potassium (Cozaar®) is approved to treat conditions related to the heart and blood vessels. Specifically, it is used for diabetic nephropathy and high blood pressure (hypertension). It works by blocking the effects of angiotensin II, which causes blood vessels to relax. This, in turn, improves blood flow.
 
Losartan potassium comes in tablet form and is generally taken once or twice a day. You can take your dose with or without food, but should take it at the same time each day to keep an even level of medication in your blood.
