Losartin

Were you looking for information about Losartan? Losartin is a common misspelling of losartan.
 
Losartan is a prescription drug that is used to treat diabetic nephropathy and high blood pressure. The medication comes in tablet form, and it is believed to work by decreasing the effectiveness of a certain chemical in the body; this causes the blood vessels to relax, which can result in lower blood pressure.
 
Although most people tolerate Losartan well, side effects are possible. Some of the common side effects of the medicine include infection, diarrhea, fatigue, and dizziness. The medication is not for everyone. Before starting treatment, be sure to let your healthcare provider know if you have any other medical conditions, such as liver disease, heart disease, or kidney failure. Also, let your healthcare provider know if you are allergic to any foods, dyes, medications, or preservatives.
