Losartan tablets belong to a group of medicines known as angiotensin-II receptor antagonists. Angiotensin-II is a substance produced in the body which binds to receptors in blood vessels, causing them to tighten. This results in an increase in blood pressure. Losartan prevents the binding of angiotensin-II to these receptors, causing the blood vessels to relax which in turn lowers the blood pressure.
If you buy Losartan tablets they can help prevent future heart attacks, strokes and kidney problems that can be caused by high blood pressure.

Medication such as Losartan tablets may be prescribed to help reduce high blood pressure and therefore reduce the risk of heart attack or stroke.
