1. What is COZAAR and what is it used for?

COZAAR is a blood pressure lowering (antihypertensive) drug in a group of drugs called angiotensin II receptor antagonists (AHA).

Angiotensin II is a substance produced in the body; It binds to receptors in blood vessels, causing them to narrow. As a result, blood pressure rises. Losartan prevents angiotensin II from binding to these receptors, causing relaxation of blood vessels; thereby lowering blood pressure. Losartan slows the decline in kidney function in patients with type 2 diabetes with high blood pressure.

COZAAR 50 mg film-coated tablets are white, oval-shaped, film-coated tablets debossed with '952' on one side. COZAAR is available in packages of 28 tablets.

• It is used to lower the blood pressure of patients with high blood pressure (hypertension) in adults. High blood pressure means your blood pressure rises. Blood pressure is the force that blood exerts on your blood vessels as your heart beats and relaxes. If this power is too much, your blood pressure is high (high blood pressure). COZAAR allows your blood vessels to relax, thereby lowering your blood pressure.

• To protect the kidneys in hypertensive (high blood pressure) type 2 diabetic (diabetic) patients with proteinuria >0.5 g per day (a condition in which there is an abnormal amount of protein in the urine) and laboratory evidence of impaired renal function.

• COZAAR has been shown to reduce the risk of stroke in patients with left ventricular thickening (thickening of the left ventricle of the heart) and high blood pressure (hypertension) ("LIFE indication").
