Losartan (Covance)

Losartan (Covance) is one of the medications that can help the blood vessels to relax so that the blood flows smoothly. It also goes by the name of Losartan Potassium and it can also help with reducing problems for the kidneys, reduce the chances of a stroke, and reduce the risk of a heart attack. Hypertension is very important to get under control, and often changes to diet and exercise arenít enough by themselves.

This type of medication is an angiotensin receptor blocker. However, it can be complicated to figure out just how much of this medicine someone needs to take. It all comes down to their hypertension as well as other medication risks. The doctor can fully assess the situation though and then decide on a starting dose. It may be necessary for that amount to be increased in time.

Be patient with that part of the process though. Donít take more Losartan than the doctor tells you to. Don't get frustrated if you donít get the results you want immediately. It can take a couple of weeks for the body to get used to this particular medication and to respond positively to it.

Always take this medication at the same time every day. That will help to keep your blood pressure regulated. If you forget a dose, then get back on schedule as soon as you can. If you experience nausea, consider taking this medication with food rather than on an empty stomach.

While there are often some side effects during the first week or so of use, they are generally very mild. They can include headaches, nausea, vomiting, and constipation. If diarrhea occurs make sure you take action to stay well hydrated. Watch for signs of a serious allergy to Losartan. This can include a rash, trouble breathing, problems with swallowing, and a heart that beats faster or slower than normal.
