Kardiostan 100mg

19.75 / tablet

Used in the management of hypertension especially in patients who, upon administration of ACE inhibitors, develop cough as an adverse event.
Losartan reduces the risk of cardiovascular morbidity and mortality, including stroke and myocardial infarction in patients with left ventricular hypertrophy and offers renal protection in patients with diabetic nephropathy.
The 7th Report on the Joint National Commission (JNC 7) on prevention, detection, evaluation and treatment of high blood pressure in the United States prefers thiazide diuretics as initial therapy for hypertension, but when a diuretic cannot be used or a compelling indication is present (ie, cough developed from the use of ACE inhibitors), losartan may be given as initial therapy.
