Cosart-H general information

What is Cosart-H used for?

Cosart-H tablets 50/12.5mg are a fixed dose combination medication used to treat hypertension, which is persistent high blood pressure when at rest and with no symptoms.  Often there is no cause for high blood pressure, and this is known as essential hypertension.  Risk factors for hypertension include obesity, smoking, lack of exercise, increasing age, family history, high salt diet; also, some medications and conditions can increase risk of hypertension.  Blood pressure is a measure of the force exerted against the walls of the arteries as blood is pumped through from the heart.  If undiagnosed and untreated high blood pressure can cause damage to the arteries and this can increase risk of cardiovascular disease resulting in stroke, heart attack and heart failure.  Persistent high blood pressure over time puts a strain on the heart making it work harder and causes left ventricular hypertrophy.  This is when the left ventricle, which is the main pumping chamber sending blood out of the heart to the rest of the body, becomes thickened and enlarged.  This also increases risk of stroke and heart attack and may be fatal.  High blood pressure also increases stress and damage to the smaller blood vessels in the body, particularly in the kidneys where waste products are filtered out of the blood into the urine.  Eventually high blood pressure can cause kidney damage resulting kidney failure.  Cosart-H tablets 50/12.5 are used when blood pressure cannot be controlled by a single medication to lower blood pressure to normal resting levels, which reduces the risk of cardiovascular disease and end organ damage. 

How does Cosart-H work?

Cosart-H tablets 50/12.5mg contain a fixed dose combination of two medications that work together to reduce blood pressure, in a way that is more effective that if each drug is used alone.  Losartan in Cosart-H tablets 50/12.5mg is an angiotensin II receptor blocker (ARB), which acts by blocking the binding of the hormone angiotensin II to its receptor in a variety of tissues including vascular smooth muscle (blood vessel walls) and kidney cells.  Angiotensin II is a naturally produced hormone that has several actions involved in regulating blood pressure, which is the force needed to pump blood around the body.  Angiotensin II also regulates fluid balance, which is the amount of water removed from the blood by the kidneys.  Angiotensin II causes salt (sodium and potassium) and water retention by the kidneys, which in turn causes blood vessels to constrict (narrow); this increases blood volume while at the same time reducing blood vessel volume, which increases blood pressure.  Losartan in Cosart-H tablets 50/12.5 mg blocks the binding of Angiotensin II to its receptor, preventing its pressor actions (blood pressure increasing) resulting in dilation (widening) of blood vessel and increased amount of salt and water removed by the kidneys into the urine, which lowers blood pressure.  Hydrochlorothiazide in Cosart-H tablets 50/12.5mg is a diuretic and acts directly on the kidneys to promote the removal of salts and water from the blood, which increase the urine volume and decreases blood volume.  The combined action of Losartan and hydrochlorothiazide in Cosart-H tablets 50/12.5 provides a significant and additive reduction in blood pressure, which is maintained for as long as you take your Cosart-H tablets 50/12.5.

What does Cosart-H contain?

Cosart-H tablets 50/12.5mg contains two active ingredients, Losartan (50mg), an angiotensin II receptor blocker (ARB), and hydrochlorothiazide (12.5mg), a thiazide diuretic, which work together to lower blood pressure.
