What Is Losartan Used For?
Losartan is an oral medication used to treat high blood pressure. Losartan, like candesartan (Atacand), irbesartan (Avapro), olmesartan (Benicar), telmisartan (Micardis) and valsartan (Diovan), belongs to a class of medications known as an angiotensin II receptor blockers (ARBs). Losartan works by blocking the binding of angiotensin II to AT1 receptor in tissues, thereby impairing the aldosterone-secreting and vasoconstrictor effects of angiotensin II. Losartan potassium can be used alone or in combination with other antihypertensive agents such as diuretics to treat hypertension. Losartan may also help reduce the risk of stroke and left ventricular hypertrophy in specific classes of patients and help with the management of diabetic nephropathy. Losartan is also utilized in combination with hydrochlorothiazide in the medication Hyzaar.
Losartan - Cost and Coupons
Generic losartan medication is considered an affordable medication, costing under thirty cents per pill at most pharmacies. In addition, many insurance plans may cover the cost of the medication completely. At this time, however, losartan requires a prescription and losartan OTC is not available in the United States. Losartan coupons may also be available to reduce the cost for people paying out of pocket and some insurance plans may help cover costs associated with a losartan prescription.
Losartan - Dosage
Losartan potassium is a white to off-white crystalline powder. For dosing, available forms of losartan are orally administered losartan 25 mg tablets, losartan 50 mg tablets and losartan 100 mg tablets. After oral administration, losartan is partially converted into an active carboxylic acid metabolite and other inactive metabolites. The terminal half-life of losartan tablets after oral administration is about two hours. After oral administration, less than 20% of the dose is converted to the active metabolite and losartan is excreted via the urine and the bile. Losartan and its metabolite bind extensively to proteins like albumin in the plasma. Losartan may be administered with food or other hypertensive agents. Losartan tablets should generally be stored at 25° C but check the package insert for exact instructions.

Losartan is a prescription medication in the US. In other words, one cannot legally buy losartan online or walk into a pharmacy to buy the medication without a prescription. People who need a losartan prescription, however, can connect with a licensed medical provider through Push Health who can prescribe losartan medication, including losartan 50 mg and losartan 100 mg tablets, when appropriate to do so.
